I'm not sure whether that affects us or not. I submitted the form as an
"informal group" today.

I'll look into these.  The cheapest phone number solution is probably to
use a VOIP number that goes into a voicemailbox and gets emailed to
someone.  Asterisk can do this really cheap.  Actually, it's possible to
get a free phone number for VOIP, but only in Washington state area
codes.  Suckage.
