If you take a look at load function the second parameter is the field to load, by default entity_id

Your need is $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->load('123456', 'phone_number_attribute_code');

 * Load object data
 * @param   integer $id
 * @return  Mage_Core_Model_Abstract
public function load($id, $field=null)
    $this->_beforeLoad($id, $field);
    $this->_getResource()->load($this, $id, $field);
    $this->_hasDataChanges = false;
    return $this;

You can search by below code, you can set your attribute value instead of telephone:

$telephone = '32423423';

$result = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')
    ->addAttributeToFilter('telephone', $telephone) //replace your attribute of mobile

if (is_object($result)) {
    //set your code...

  • I have tried your solution but got the above error :( can you please help me out what am i doing wrong? – Shashank Jun 27 '16 at 10:42

At magento telephone is Customer address attribute.

If you want to get Customer details from telephone then you need to check Customer Id from Mage::getModel('customer/address') model.


    $customerId= $CustomAddress->getCustomerId($CustomAddress);

Then using Customer id,You can get Custome data by load Customer model

$customer = Mage::getModel(‘customer/customer’)->load($customerId);
