the comma is used to separate the thousands, millions, etc.:
 
1,000
1,000,000
1,000,000,000
 
Commas are NOT used for telphone numbers, in the USA a - is common for telephone numbers:
 
(123)456-7890 
 
(Parenthesis set off the area code, which is not usually dialed when both callers are within the same area).
