I suspect you didn't use a real name. I signed up with a business name before I realized they had a business sign up process. When I tried to log in, Facebook asked me for a cell phone number too. I clicked on the "use alternate ...." (something or other) and it kept coming back to the cell phone entry page. I have one but it's for private use and Facebook isn't getting that number. Just too many horror stories of Facebook looting information for their advertisers. So, I just don't do Facebook. Can't say I've lost anything without it. I could really care less. Hope you have better luck.
