You said, "how to change the pattern..." I assumed by that you meant change this line:

$phone_pattern = '/([0-9]{0,1})?[-.\s]?(\(?([0-9]{3})\)?[-.\s]?)?([0-9]{3})[-.\s]+([0-9]{4})([\s]?[x|ext]?[\s]?([0-9]+))?/s';

How about:

$phone_pattern = '/(?:\d\D*){10}/';

Please post the test data that you might be using with that code above, thanks.

Here is how to normalize a phone number.

@Kaufmed:
I do not know where to add this line you suggested:
$phone_pattern = '/(?:\d\D*){10}/';

answered my question

but Ray showed me there are more potential patterns

so I think that both answers are equal
