or do something like (in your checkout profile):

[if value phone_day]
         phone=phone Is that a real telephone number?
         phone=required We need your daytime telephone number

... I am pretty sure the syntax is correct here (it is for MV3 and 4), but 
I can't find the section on order profiles in the online docs, and given 
all their inaccuracies/omissions, I'm not even sure that they are being 
maintained anymore!
