    Inputting String into program

    I'm having problems getting my program to run and take in a phone number as a string. One string is the area code and the other is the 7 digit number.

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Telephone {
    	public static String areaCode;
    	private String localNumber;
    	private Object myConsole;
    	private Object prompt;
    	private static String area;
    	private static String number;
    	public Telephone(int areaCode) {
    		System.out.println("Please Enter Area Code:");
    		String prompt = area;
    	public static String getNumber1() {
    		return area;
    	public void setName1(String number) {
    		this.area = area;
    	public String toString1() {
    		return "Phone Number: " + area;
    	public static String getNumber() {
    		return areaCode;
    	public void setName(String number) {
    		this.area = area;
    	public String toString() {
    		return number;
    import java.io.Console;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Number {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Console c = System.console();
    		String phoneNumber = Telephone.getNumber();
    		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    		System.out.println("What is the employee's name?"); // prompt
    		phoneNumber = input.nextString(); // read employee name from user

    What kind of problems are you having? Scanner is the correct way to do it if you are using a console application.
