What would code look like to check multiple fields in the Hide/When formula?

I have a need to check if a Dialog list with 5 choices (None, Back1, Back2,Back3 and  Back4) has either Back1 or Back3 chosen. If so, then a set of cells in the subform needs to be visible otherwise hidden if choice of Dialog list is None, Back2 or Back4.

I have the code in the Hide tab as:
Misc4 != "None" | "Back2" | "Back4"
This doesn't seem to work.

This is one way that I would like to see it work, another would be to have validation that if the Dialog list choice is None, Back2 or Back4 AND the phone field is filled in, then a popup msg alerts the user that the back choice doesn't have an option for a phone number and to fix it. - I tried this too but can't seem to get the syntax correct for this solution.
