Our application has few fields which gets saved (default name given by test complete) with msk prefix (i assume it means masked). We are able to read value with naked eyes and it adds hyphen as we type (eg: phone number 647-xxx-xxxx). wText is what I used for txt prefix fields to read value but it does not work for msk prefix objects. Any suggestions.

They are not "TestComplete properties". They are properties of your application's object and they exist whether or not you are using TestComplete. TestComplete is simply allowing you to view what is there. If there is no text option there, TestComplete cannot add one for you.
You need to talk to your developers about what is needed for the test and work with them to expose the properties that you need. Then you can use them in TestComplete.
So here's what's causing your problem - the (Non-Browsable) fields. TestComplete is simply reading what's defined in the application. You'll need to talk to your developers about exposing those values somehow.
The value "7894764651" is displayed in property "NativeVBObject". Isn't there any way we can fetch the value of this property?
See the ... button to the right of that field? Click on that and you'll be able to drill down and see if there's a text field available.
On clicking ... , it shows me another property which is "Enabled" with value "True". Nothing else.
I was thinking if we can get value of nativeVBObject property like we do "element.getAttribute(attributeName)" in selenium. Something like Aliases.element.getAttribute("nativeVBObject");
TestComplete is showing you the attributes. That's what this is. If it's not in the view, then you can't just magically code for it and have it appear.
Talk to your developers and get them to expose a text field for you.
