Try searching the contents of all files on your system for that
telephone number (executable files too). Its been a while since I've
used a windows based computer, but if I remember correctly there is a
feature in the search facility that allows you to search the contents of
files. When you compile source code certain strings remain intact, so
this all file search might help you find the source of the problem. I'd
be interested in knowing what the source of the problem is when you
resolve it. If you need any further help I'd be happy to help you out.
