    Default Major code error need help!!!

    When the for loop places values in the array (below) it seems to work fine. However, when the program gets out of the for loop, for whatever reason, only the last phone number is written to the file by the output stream. Could this be something to do with my toString() method? Please help! I don't know what's going on with this. I've included the Constructor that is called in the for loop and the toString method that is used to write back to the file.

    Java Code:
    inputStream.close();//closes inputStream from earlier usage.
    TelephoneNumber[]array = new TelephoneNumber[10];
            inputStream = new Scanner(new File(fileName));
            for(int i = 0;inputStream.hasNextLine();i++){
                String line = inputStream.nextLine();
                array[i]=new TelephoneNumber(line);
            }//end for
            PrintWriter outputStream = new PrintWriter(fileName);
            for(int i=0; i<array.length;i++){
            }//end for
    Java Code:
    public TelephoneNumber(String phoneNumber){
            Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("(\\d{3})-(\\d{3})-(\\d{4})");
            Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(phoneNumber);
                        pattern = Pattern.compile("(\\d{3})-(\\d{4})");
                        matcher = pattern.matcher(phoneNumber);
                            if (!matcher.matches())
                                throw new InvalidPhoneException();
                            else {
                                areaCode = 0;
                                exchangeCode = Integer.parseInt(;
                                number = Integer.parseInt(;
                        areaCode = Integer.parseInt(;
                        exchangeCode = Integer.parseInt(;
                        number = Integer.parseInt(;
                catch(InvalidPhoneException e){
       }//end constructor
    public String toString(){
            return areaCode+"-"+exchangeCode+"-"+number;
                return exchangeCode+"-"+number;
