It looks more complicated than it is.  I was able to do
everything I needed with just two commands.  E.g.

retrievedXML = ImportString[XMLdataRecord, "XML",
   "NormalizeWhitespace" -> False];

{numbers} = Cases[retrievedXML,
    XMLElement["telephonenumbers", _, _],
    Infinity] /. XMLElement[_, _, {val_}] :> val;
