Is the Phone field type ever searchable? Have platform dev questions about searchable fields but have come across conflicting answers.

Basically I just want to understand is Phone field type searchable using global search? Also for number field.

Are there any other searching methods that limit field types that are searchable?

Not all object and fields are searchable, so reference the table to determine which records you can find with Salesforce search.

When you search for a value in a field that's hidden from you by field-level security, your results include the record that contains the field. However, you can't see the field.
