PayPal IPN Phone Number Issue

I have setup a PayPal IPN listener which works great, but I'm not receiving the customer's phone number for some reason.

I'm pre-populating the phone number using the night_phone_a, b and c and it is showing in the PayPal side so I suspect that using 'contact_phone' in my IPN script may not be correct even though that is what PayPal says to use.

Is anyone using an IPN script that returns a customer phone number and could you let me know what post variable you are retrieving from PayPal to get the data?

Why don't you log the POSTed data to see what you are actually getting?

Good idea, maybe there is a POST variable that I'm unaware of.
