Define fields as "Phone"

I am trying to set up a field as a phone number. In the Tools>Define Fields area I can select the field I want to edit, but it does not offer "Phone" as a possible field type. Anyone have any suggestions?

Once a field is created, not all data types will be available when you edit the field. You will need to create a new field to select Phone as the data type.

Thanks. So I created a new field, and selected the data type as phone, and clicked finish, but I can't find the new field in the contact detail window. It's only in the list of fields. Thoughts?
