Pull data out of cell

I have a column of cells in Column B that text similar to:

"New voicemail from (xxx) xxx-xxx at 2:42 PM"

Obviously the "x's" are actual number of a phone number. In column C, I want to have just the phone number from that cell. Any ideas?

Select your column with this data, Click the Data Tab, Text To Columns, Select Fixed Width, remove the breaks you don't want on the next screen, and add ones leading and trailing the phone number.
