How to Sign Up for Facebook Without Using a Number

When you visit Facebook from a mobile phone Web browser, the site redirects you to the mobile-friendly Facebook site, which has a layout that's easier to use in a small phone browser than the traditional Facebook website. When you sign up for a new account via the Facebook mobile site, you are asked to provide your phone number instead of your email address. You can sign up without a phone number by signing up through the traditional Facebook site or by choosing the email sign-up option through the mobile Facebook site.
