        <input type="text" class="form-control" ng-model="choice.no" name="number-{{$index+1}}" placeholder="Mobile number {{$index+1}}" required>
        <div class="input-group-addon" ng-if="!$last" ng-click="numberRemove(choice)"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-minus"></span>
        </div>
        <div class="input-group-addon" ng-if="$last" ng-click="numberAdd()"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-plus"></span>
        </div>
      </div>
      <span class="text-danger" ng-show="myform.number-{{$index+1}}.$invalid">Field required</span>
    </div>
  </form>
  <br>
  <pre>{{choices | json}}</pre>
</div>

Solution

ng-show accepts an expression. You could write it like this:

<span class="text-danger" ng-show="myform['number-' + ($index + 1)].$invalid">Field required</span>
