Hi Raymond and welcome,


If the phone number is in the ad copy (legacy campaigns) you need to edit the ads from the ads tab. The policy has changed regarding numbers in ad copy so if you are changing them here, it would be better to remove them and insert some other copy and use the call extensions (ad extensions tab) to put your number in.


Call extensions (ad extensions tab) is the other place to look to be able to change your phone number that appears with your ads. It's as easy as hovering over the phone number, clicking on it and then you should be able to edit it.


Let me know if you are having trouble with it. I'm happy to help.
