I recently booked a flight with Jetstar, and found that a mobile phone
number was an obligatory part of the process.  (I used my partner's.)

Now I try to sign up online for a bank account and find that "mobile
number" is an obligatory field there as well.  Since this is for ID
verification, I can't really use someone else's.

In twenty or thirty years, is "not carrying a mobile phone" going to
be a criminal offence?
