Phone numbers in ad

I'm new to AdWords. I entered my ad and my phone number, but the ad kept displaying all xxx instead of my number. Is that because a verification process needs to happen first or am I doing something wrong?

Hi there,

 

Phone numbers in ad copies are not allowed. However, you may add a Call Extension that will first need verification. For more, please refer to:

Hi Bob,

 

In addition to @Lakatos great advice, you can also use call only ads where a phone number will be displayed in the headline of the ad.

Great point made by @Archit. Pre-condition is this: call-only ads only appear on devices that can make phone calls.
