First off, you can use

<t:dataList value="#{editPhone.phones}" var="phone" id="phonesTable">
<h:inputText value="#{phone.rawValue}" size="10"/>

and dump the row index.

There's many reasons why your values might not being saved.  Here's a
couple that I can think of.

1) You're hitting a validation error somewhere on your page.  It may
not even be related to your phone list.  Add these tags to your page:

	<t:messages globalOnly="true" showDetail="true" />
	<t:messages globalOnly="false" showDetail="true" />

2) The editPhone bean is request-scoped, and thus there's no list to
work from when your form is submitted.   You can test for this problem
by making your bean session-scoped temporarily.   My preferred fix for
this situation is to use

	<t:saveState id="editPhonePhones" value="#{editPhone.phones}"/>
