Hi Michal,

It used to be allowed but the rule was changed more than 2 years ago. Now adding phone numbers in the copy is not legitimate and ads usually get banned for this practice. However, we seem to experience issues with enforcement as your image shows. Instead, you are advised to use the "Call extensions" feature that is available under the "Ad extensions" tab.

Best,
Lakatos

thank you for explanaton, Lakatos.
I always use call extension but today I saw this ads and I was surprised
that something has changed regarding call numbers.
