I know that recently Google disallowed the inclusion of phone numbers in Adwords text ads. Is this policy also for banner ads as well? I've been unable to find a clear answer anywhere.

I have an addition to this issue. It seems that you cannot use a phone number on the text box that appears above a button, that is how my Ad got disapproved, the person who made the banner thought it was a good idea to place the phone there.
