Why do I need different phone numbers for each of my email accounts?

I need different email accounts for personal, business, etc., but I can't create an email account with the same phone number as another account. This makes no sense and I want to turned off.

Re: Why do I need different phone numbers for each of my email accounts?

The reason is for security.  If one account is compromised, they could all be on the block if they have the same contact information.  A lot of other email providers are now doing the same thing. You can, however, opt to use another email address instead of a phone number.  The email address would have to be from a non-Comcast email provider.
