Magento: How can we collect cell phone numbers instead of emails within the Newsletter submit area?
In terms of creating a cell phone number database which is so important for marketing, I want to change the newsletter submit form. In the current situation it requires @ sign and thats why does not allow records for any numbers. This would help pulling customers into Magento store. Any idea?
