Retrieving phone numbers in the response from GET contacts

I'm not receiving the phone_number in the response message from the contacts endpoint in your v3 api.  Is there any reason why that isn't exposed to me and is there a way to expose that if required?

Re: Retrieving phone numbers in the response from GET contacts

Hi @DomD0,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.

 

When using the v3 API please keep in mind that certain parts of the contact profile are considered a sub resource and need to be called specifically to see that data. The phone number is one of those resources. I do not see your call so I cannot say if you are requesting the phone number sub resource or not.

 

Here is a link to the sub resource section of our documentation for reference. https://v3.developer.constantcontact.com/api_guide/contacts_subresources.html

I wasn’t aware of the subresouexd documentation. I’m certain this will resolve my issue. Thanks!
