comment User registration tips
Is there a serious reason to require SMS validation? Aside my bank website, I would never give my phone number to any other during registration, which is probably the case of most people.

comment How to communicate foreign key constraints in a business application?
@katit: "If I start disabling buttons out of the blue - there will be questions WHY it is disabled": that's why I suggested to add tooltips on disabled buttons.

@Ian: that's why in the last point of my answer, I discuss two cases, the second one being the case when you cannot disable the button.

@katit: I don't understand the end of your third point: so you don't want to spend 10 ms. doing an additional query, but are ready, instead, to lose 5 seconds of your customers time reading an error message he don't even care about? By the way, if the number of queries matter, in most databases, you can query both data itself and the existence of related foreign entities in the same query.

comment How to communicate foreign key constraints in a business application?
@Aaron McIver: those cases are extremely rare and are often misunderstood (for example, as a developer, when I use the IDE, I don't care why it crashes; I just need it to never crash). Also, as you see from the edit of the question, this is a perfect case where the end users don't care about FK violations: if they can't delete a customer, they must be unable to do it from the UI, instead of having a large "Delete" button which will raise a cryptic error mostly every time they click on it.
