In the past weeks, I ordered quite a few things online. Almost all shops asked for my telephone number, for most of them, entering a number was mandatory.
I used a fake number for all of them. Guess what? I still got all of my items. And if there were any problems (“sorry, there was an error in the data, so we can only send you one shirt, not the two shirts you ordered“), I got notified via email.
Anyone of you in online retail? Then, please don't ask for my number if you don't need it. :)
