You can do that directly from database. Open eav_attribute table and set value in 'is_required' column from '1' to '0'.

  • it should work, have you tried after cleaning cache? Commented Jun 22, 2018 at 13:27

You can try this ...

$installer = Mage::getModel('customer/entity_setup', 'core_setup');
$installer->updateAttribute('customer_address','telephone', 'is_required', 0);

If its not enough please check this: up to date guide to remove telephone required field from checkout
