Programmatically Change the Telephone number on an exisiting user in Magento

I have code that sucessfully sets the phone number when creating a new user in Magento programmatically.

$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');
$customer->setWebsiteId(Mage::app()->getWebsite()->getId());
            
  //setting data such as email, firstname, lastname, and password
$customer->firstname = $firstname;
$customer->lastname = $lastname;
$customer->email = $email;
$customer->password_hash = md5($password);
if($customer->save())
{
      $address = Mage::getModel("customer/address");
      $address->setCustomerId($customer->getId());
      $address->setFirstname($customer->firstname);
      $address->setLastname($customer->lastname);
      $address->setTelephone("55555555555);
                  $address->save();
      echo $customer->firstname." ".$customer->lastname." information is saved!";
}            

However, I can't my code to work on an existing customer:                  
      
$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');
$customer->loadByEmail($email);
if($customer->getId())
{
      $address = Mage::getModel("customer/address");  
      $address->setTelephone($points);
      $address->save();
}

What am I doing wrong?

Try using
$address->setSaveinAddressBook('1');

Open in new window

before saving the $address.

Ok, here's the code with your addition... this does update the phone number, but it creates a new address every time.

	$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');
	$customer->loadByEmail($email);
	if($customer->getId()) 
	{
		$address = Mage::getModel("customer/address"); 
  	                  $address->setCustomerId($customer->getId());
		$address->setTelephone($points);
		$address->setSaveinAddressBook('1'); 
		$address->save();
                  }

Open in new window

What we do is delete the address that we are modifying and then when it creates the new one...

Deleting first worked great.
