What do you have in CSV file header ?

If your CSV header like "Alias","Phone", Run below script.
$input = Import-Csv C:\Temp\Script\in.csv

foreach($mbx in $input){

$Phone2 = Get-Recipient -Identity $mbx.Alias
$Phone2 = $

if($ -eq $phone2){
#for output update below command as required
Write-Host "$mbx phone number is correct" -ForegroundColor Green

if($ -ne $phone2){
#for output update below command as required
Write-Host "$mbx phone number is not correct" -ForegroundColor red
