    add this with the other elseif statements
    elseif($field['key'] == "phone"){
    $STRING .= "< a href='tel:".$;'>" . $value ."</ a>";

    where phone is the custom field you create in customfield section

    Easy way : install plugin Telephone Number Linker from
    This plugin allows you to turn a phone number on your site into a link that only appears clickable for mobile phone users. This means mobile device users can click the number to call it, but desktop users won’t see it as a link – so won’t be taken to an error screen that they would normally when clicking on a phone number link. Some iOS and Android devices make numbers clickable by default – but not all do. If your client calls saying her ancient phone won’t call a number on his site when she clicks on it this is the plugin for you.
