Second phone numbers aren’t that hard or expensive. you don’t need a second sim, just an app. There is a yc startup providing them: openphone

They are rarely usable on web sites for 2fa as they disallow voip numbers. In fact, many websites don’t allow google voice numbers for the same reason.

Is it easy to distinguish voip numbers ?

Yes, using Twilio’s lookup service it’s trivial.
