Value

A DOMString indicating the number associated with the call. This can be either the number dialed for an outgoing call, or the phone number reported by caller ID for an incoming call.

Examples

tel.dial("123456789").then(function(call) {
  call.number;
});

// Receive a call
tel.onincoming = function (e) {
  var incomingCall = e.call;

  // Get the number of the incoming call
  console.log(incomingCall.number);
