Hi all

I want to check the presence of either one of two fields for instance,
phone number or mobile number, if either one presents, allow the
submission of the form

validates_presence_of :phone, OR :mobile

def validate
  errors.add(:phone, "can't be blank") if phone.blank? && mobile.blank?
  errors.add(:mobile, "can't be blank") if phone.blank? && mobile.blank?

or some variation of the above
