I can't sign up for an Azure account without a phone number as I don't have one. What belief-friendly alternatives are provided?

I am trying to sign up for an Azure account but during the signup process I am expected to provide a phone number and verify it.

Due to my beliefs, I do not and cannot have a phone number. What alternatives does Microsoft/Azure provide for those with belief systems incompatible with their self-signup form?

I tried to create a troubleshooting ticket to ask this instead but was repeatedly getting the error so I had to resort to the forums:
