What is the cheapest solution to buy a phone number (could be an international number anywhere in the world) that just plays a message that I've recorded then hangs up?
I don't have a phone number. I don't want to have a phone number. Alas, it's becoming increasingly difficult to register for an account without providing a valid phone number. In cases where I signup for an account online and they require me to enter a valid phone number just to have it on-record (dumb "signup form" required fields), I want to just be able to enter some phone number that, when called, will play an automated message saying:
Hello, you've reached the phone number for XYZ. To contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I'm assuming that because this solution would it only take incoming calls (0 outgoing calls), all the calls would be free.
What is the cheapest way to get an actual phone number that just plays a pre-recorded message and hangs-up?
