DIV's are block level elements by default and therefore will always force a
new line.  Some people will probably provide a better solution, but try
using a "span" instead of a "div":

<span class="formText-black">Fill in this form or phone</span>
<span class="formText-white">0113 123456</span>
<span class="formText-black">for more information</span>

As an aside, by naming the classes after the description of the styling you
are someone missing the paradigm shift of late.  You may consider naming the
class that formats phone numbers as "phone" or something that represents
what the content symantically means.


<p class="maincontent">
  Fill in this form or phone
  <span class="phone">0113 123456</span>
