c++ array problem input and sub menus, assignment is due really soon

@seeplus has pretty much done it for you, but it may be beyond a beginner. If you don't understand it, you should ask.

std::getline will read a whole line, then you can do stuff with the string it returns. But for numbers, you could just use std::cin >> phoneno, then check if the number is too large.
