You are buying software -- the payment processor requires you give your phone number. You think:

Sure, will give it
Dont like, but give it anyway
Dont like, protest -- but give it in the end
Go elsewhere
Give a fake number

If the software has free phone support I would think they would require you don't have a phone.  That makes it less likely you will call and create a charge for them at the call center that does their customer support.  ;)
