Just installed the module, and I notice it does not show a textfield for the actual phone number entry. Screenshot attached.
That's odd. The number textfield should always be output. Have you made sure that it is not accidentally got a CSS display:none on it?
Are you getting any errors anywhere?
Have you tried different combinations of widgets settings to see if that has any effect?
Looks like it will be ticking Use input type=tel for editing
I am using Chrome.
All I can think of is that your theme cache is out of sync. That doesn't make too much sense though. Is there possibly some other module in your install that might be using "theme_phone_tel", or the "phone_tel" element? If the browser doesn't understand input type="tel", it should just render a plain old textfield.
I'm a bit puzzled by this.
This issue has no child issues.
