works as expected however, the '\D' tokens allow for any non-digit characters (such as letters) which we don't necessarily want in phone numbers (or at least in those positions). still give it a 4/5

Just works. the biggest issue with US is the delimiters. dashes, periods, brackets etc. this allows all or none. perfect

Woops, forgot the other 2 digits in the area code *grins sheepishly* ^\D?(^[2-9]\d{2})\D?\D?(\d{3})\D?(\d{4})$

The only thing I would change is making sure the area code doesn't begin with 0,1 so my change is ^\D?(^[2-9])\D?\D?(\d{3})\D?(\d{4})$

Doh! After reading the comments above I completely overlooked entering a single open bracket without a close! Try this: // with brackets pattern1 = /^\(\d{3}\)[ -.]\d{3}[ -.]\d{4}$/; // without brackets pattern2 = /^\d{3}[ -.]\d{3}[ -.]\d{4}$/; if (!pattern1.test(telephone) && !pattern2.test(telephone)) { etc....

Try this instead: ^\(?\d{3}\)?[ -.]\d{3}[ -.]\d{4}$ It requires delimiters of a space, a dash or a period. It requires a 3 figure area code followed by the standard 3 figure and 4 figure grouping. It allows optional brackets around the area code. It will not accept any excess numbers like x1425 but if there are no restrictions on this simply remove the $ sign from the end of the expression.

(654(294-7654 and (654-294-7654 is a false positive.
