You can use regular expressions for this.

Googling for javascript phone number validation gives some links that look interesting.

(Note: JavaScript doesn't have anything to do with Java. We do have a forum about HTML and JavaScript here, so I've moved your question there for you).

Regular expressions would be one way. But be aware that many people enter phone numbers containing characters such as + / - ( ) or . - you need to account for that in some way. Or you can just remove everything that is not a number after they've entered it. Of course, "+491234567890" is not the same phone number as "491234567890", just in case you need to handle international numbers.
I agree. Here's the link:
