validation of phone number

I wrote a code;
This code validate the10 digit telephone number; if the telephone number is incorrect or without a space after typing the area code in () , will generate an error.
I have two problems in this code
(i) In the area code field I want the just the area code without parenthisis()
(ii) It is giving me an alert messaged even if I type the right phone number format.

here is the code you can copy and paste the code and see result
*******************

<script language="javascript">
var n =  new Array(2),  f =  new Array(8),s =  new Array(5),a,b,c,d,e,g,h,i,j,r;


function validateThis(n){
 n = document.form1.fullText.value;
if ((n.charAt(0)=='(') && (n.charAt(4)==')') && (n.charAt(5)==' ') && (n.charAt(9)=='-'))
SplitNum(n);
else
window.alert("Please enter a valid number jo jojo")
}
function SplitNum(n,s,f){
var k=n.split(" "), fir = k[0].length, las = k[1].length , q=k[0];
if( fir == 5 && las == 8){
      var s = k[0];
      var f = k[1];
      a = parseInt(s[1]);
      b = parseInt(s[2]);
      c = parseInt(s[3]);
      d = parseInt(f[0]);
      e = parseInt(f[1]);
      g = parseInt(f[2]);
      h = parseInt(f[4]);
      i = parseInt(f[5]);
      j = parseInt(f[6]);
      r = parseInt(f[7]);
      ValNum();
 var jk=s.split(")");
      document.form1.areaText.value =   jk;
      document.form1.numText.value = f ;
      }
      else window.alert("Enter a valid number, quit playing.")

}
function ValNum(){
if(isNaN(a) || isNaN(b) || isNaN(c) || isNaN(d) || isNaN(e) || isNaN(g) || isNaN(h) || isNaN(i) || isNaN(j) || isNaN(r) )
window.alert("Enter a valid number hey bobo")
}

In this situation, I like to help users.  For the first input, for area, I would do this:

<input name="areaText" type="text" id="areaText" onblur="checkArea(this)">

The script would strip out the non-numeric entries, if any, and check for length:

function checkArea(obj) {
   var val = this.value;
   if (val == "") { return; }  // blank, which is okay
   val = val.replace(/\D/g,"");
   this.value = val;
   if (val.length > 0 && val.length != 3) {
      alert("The area code must be three digits.");
      this.focus();
  }
}

This way, the user gets immediate feedback on the entry.

You can always use this test on the final submit:

val.match(/\D/) to determine whether there somehow any NON-numeric characters in the string.

Thanks for you reply but I can't do that because i have to do the form in the same way as I shown in the code.
This my college project and I can't change the text field.
