Please stop asking for my phone number
I do not feel comfortable sharing my phone number with outlook.com.I should be given the option to not enter my number.

How does one send email without providing a phone number to “verify” the account?
If the goal is really to stop spam as stated, why not provide a captcha prompt instead of forcing users pretentiously and unnecessarily to provide personal information that is not related to their email account?
