Use the Profile URL (alias) field to customize their URL. You can set the field using CB Auto Actions to generate custom URLs on their behalf.

With that said username is public throughout CB and Joomla. Most extensions are designed with that in mind. So I don't recommend using phone number for username. You very likely will have a data leak from any number of extensions by doing this.
