SOLUTION
To fix this issue, take one of the following actions, depending on your situation:
  • If a directory synchronization tool such as Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Sync or Directory Sync (DirSync) is being used to synchronize users from on-premises to Office 365, the administrator should follow these steps:
    1. On the General tab of the user in Active Directory Users and Computers in the on-premises Active Directory schema, edit the Telephone Number property so that it reflects the number that you want displayed in the user’s contact card.
    2. Perform a directory synchronization by using Azure AD Sync or DirSync.
  • Users who aren't synchronized from an on-premises Active Directory schema can have an Office 365 administrator update their Office phone property in the Office 365 admin center. Administrators should follow these steps. (For more information, see Edit or change users in Office 365.)

MORE INFORMATION
The contact card uses the telephone number schema attribute to populate the telephone number in a user’s contact card. After the user is moved to Office 365, is enabled for Cloud PBX and Domestic/International Calling, and then assigned a telephone number, the number must be edited in the on-premises active directory or added to the user properties in the Office 365 admin center.
