Quite right. Mail verification is a solved problem.
> Phone verification is a lot more costly,
I'm not sure I believe that. I use a variety of services that verify
transactions by calling my phone number and speaking a code number I have
to type into their web site. Given how low value some of the transactions
are, they can't be spending much on their IVR system.

My, you're an optimist.
