Solution - error checking for daytime telephone field is not displayed.

I had what I believe is exactly the same problem. I also initially thought
it was to do with the credit card number but it turned out to be the field
for the daytime telephone number. It seems to do some sort of checking that
the characters are valid i.e. all digits. I had entered text in this field
and I kept on getting an error but it was not indicating where the error
was. I assume this is a small bug in the error display. Try again making
sure that the telephone field has just digits.

When something like this happens, make a page which has just
this in it:


Then access that page.

It should give the value of your session, and you will find
a top-level key in the session information called "errors".
Look at that and see if the information is there.
