Getting a model's phone number

I am an experienced photographer, however I am just beginning to shoot with models.  It seems that I have scared away a few models when I say via FB or MM that before we actually shoot, we need to exchange phone numbers in order to finalize possibly unfinished details.  Also, I believe a phone number exchange is import if anything comes up on the day of the shoot when email of FB communication isn't available.  Lastly, I list my number on my FB page, and I want a bit of security myself to try to avoid any surprises... getting the model's number and speaking with her/him may help in that way.

Am I going against common modeling protocol by asking for a number?

Any thoughts or suggestions from photographers who shoot with models would be much appreciated.
