BTW i see people posting that the option to provide a cell phone number is a private alternative, it isnt, the entire purpose of providing the cell phone number is again to identify you, as you have identified yourself to your cell phone provider,facebook asks AT&T does ***-***-**** belong to John Smith? AT&T replies yes or no, if no then account still remains locked.

What did you do to have your Facebook account closed? They do not simply force you to change your name unless its offensive. Have you been spamming peoples walls with stuff? Or spamming social groups? Or people in PM's? Or posted something highly controversial on your wall? Or got into verbal wars with someone on a social Facebook platform? I am betting that you were reported for something by someone and it was brought to the attention of the folks in charge of Facebook and action was taken.
Facebook accounts do not "close" for no reason at all. There has to be a reason.
Every single case Ive heard where an account was closed, it was because someone reported the person for suspicious activity.
Another reason for your account being closed is if you friend request a lot of people at once. That seems to throw up a red flag to them too.
