"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open Active Directory user and computers, on the tool bar click find, advanced tab, click Field button, then user and select the mobile number.

If you are talking programatically that's a different story.

What you want to search? all users mobile number? or only specfic user?

If it is for specific users they you need to either user Ldap query or you can utilize the powershell script.
