Form 1040 - prompts you to fill in a phone # for designee which causes an error message that will not go away or allow you to E File

I did not experience that at all yesterday.  Was there another update this morning that ,ay have created this issue?

Do you have a phone number entered in Tools > Preparer Information?   The 3rd party designee should pull the info from there.

Yes it is in prepared information. I get one message that states no number should be entered and another that states it must be entered

you may be able to efile by removing the check-mark  in 'enable conversion error checking'  in the Convert/ transmit returns... but I'd be VERY careful that the forms (including the signatory and designee are correct) I haven't had any problems with the preparer/designee info at all.

I thought I saw someone say they just went into Tools>Options and entered a preparer phone number in the preparer information and it fixed it, but that seems too obvious and easy.
