You can retrieve the Phone Numbers on the extensions you could use : Get Extension Phone Number List
You need an Address Book and you can retrieve the phone numbers associated with the contacts, for which you might need: Get Address Book ( API Endpoint )

Please go through

All you need is permission to see this endpoint and for that, you need to mail the developer support team or submit a support ticket.

Two links in your questions are for the same sever side Rest API. One is for C# while the other is generic.

I am not sure if you have the permission to see this API endpoint. Please login and have a try.
