Add something for free trial
If you can have one instance where you can see how things work without putting in a credit card number, that would be fabulous.
We’re evaluating some options here. We should have an update in a month or so.

As Azure free account is wireed to phone number, I know it sometimes makes trouble for training. If the phone number is used for free account, the number cannot use for more free account.
This is actually inconvenient for training, trial evaluation, and initial development.
The free account of IBM bluemix is easier. It requires mail address only.
Please examine azure free account for such kind of trial use.
