[Dislike]:KEEP PHONE CALL VERIFICATION OPTION FOR MICROSOFT ACCOUNTS
I regard to: "Say goodbye to phone call verification, hello to new options" ("Update your Microsoft account verification options to sign in smoothly"):
PLEASE DO NOT GET RID OF PHONE-CALL VERIFICATION!! I am UNCOMFORTABLE in having to settle for the other options that you offer!

Please don't get rid of this option! While landlines may be becoming rare in the business world, they are not in the government. There are thousands of government employees and contractors that work in Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities that store and process classified information. There are still unclassified computers in these facilities, but cell phones are strictly forbidden. Phone call verification is the ONLY way I can log into a Microsoft system with MFA. A code of verification app simply don't work. I can't request MFA approval, get out of the SCIF and to my cell phone (usually located in a locker in the front of the building, unlock my locker, and hit approve in the timeframe required for this method. Worse, if I try to use the code, I can't get the code, race back to the SCIF, badge into the SCIF and then get to my computer, unlock it, and type the code in the time required.
Phone call verification is the ONLY way. Please don't eliminate it.
I often find myself in areas without CELL Service and TO that end I HAVE A LAND LINE - so that doesn't get SMS.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND NOT EVERYONE CAN USE A CELL PHONE
