Still experimenting
Using JOSM Overpasstubo API build query
enter the following text
    phone=* and phone!="^.61 8 "

That should get
phone=*  .. gets all the phone numbered features
phone!="^.61 8 " removes all the phone numbers that start with 'x61 8 ' 
where x is any character. I have not come up wit a way to search for '+' 
as that is a registered character.

My first search was simply - used phone=* and that gets a lot of good 
ones. You will need to change the 8 charter to match your state.
There is also a way of selecting an admin area if your near a boarder .. 
something like 'is in Queensland' ?
