You posted under LDS account. Of course, you can still access many church resources that use your LDS account from any desktop, laptop or tablet, as well as a mobile phone.

LDS.org (with the directory, calendar, donations, etc)
gospel Library
FamilySearch.org. Make sure you learn how to print out ordinance requests.
FamilySearch indexing,
and many others....

Did you have another question?

I think the issue is that a mobile phone is used as part of the setup/authentication process.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

hcarterg,

Welcome to the forum and your first post!

You've likely already figured this out:
But if not...here is your options for verification on your lds account (compliments of Support!)
If they don’t have a cell phone available for verification, they must use an email address. They do not need to use both, just one or the other. If they don’t already have an email, they will need to just create an email at a domain of their choice.

Of course, I'm sure you have ward members (maybe a clerk?) who can help you get registered properly, or even use their computers or tablets to do so, and there are many FREE email's you can sign up for....
get your email in advance, of course!

[update: Another Tech suggested this: "an email address is the preferred method to verify an account and a text message is the alternative. So, an email address is the preferred option."]
