Okay I missed the part where he said he really didn't need the phone. Yes you need a phone number for DSL since it is a phone line and they have to be able to identify who the phone line belongs to, but all you have to do is just unplug the phone, or turn off the ringer.

All one needs is to have the phone line running to the DSL modem. You don't have to branch it off to a phone also.
