Phone number?

Hi, I figured I would try my hand at e-publishing, and thought I would try Amazon. But when I try to set up my account, they want my phone number. I was just wondering why?

I mean, I've looked through the boards for a reason, and from what I can see they email people if they want to inform them of something. Sorry if this has been asked before(looked but couldn't find anything).

Thanks in advance.

Amazon is paranoid about making sure that its authors are real people with traceable addresses. That, I am sure, is why it won't pay you through a third-party service like PayPal. It doesn't want to get in trouble with the IRS.
