AliExpress / registration requirement

United States
Contact information:

I found the ideal hand tool set for my microscope but wasted way too much time attempting to register in order to place my order. The problem was that Aliexpress would not let me complete registration without entering my cell #. Well, I don't have a cell phone and have no need to get one. After two chat sessions (I was referred to as 'dear' on the first) I found out that a cell # was how I would be notified of my order status. Upon further questioning (I asked why my email wasn't enough) I was told to expect ads if I had given them a cell number. I understand this is a big inconvenience for some cell users! In any event, I found a suitable substitute on good old Amazon and will never mess with Aliexpress again.
