How can I change a data type?

For newly created custom fields I can edit the data type, but for custom fields I created a while ago this seems not possible.

I'm setting up my Account Center and would like my users to edit their zip code. This field can only be numbers. The current data type for this field is 'text' which I cannot change into 'number'.
