Getting to level 21 takes a significant amount of time, and you need to actually receive the text they send to that number in addition to your email used for the steam account.

The minor cost of simply buying CS:GO (via grey keys in bulk no less) was far less of a deterrent than the time it takes to get a new account to Prime now. If you cheat to get to 21, you risk losing the progress you made before you can cheat for "real".

Then, if giving them one's number isn't ideal, one can do so using said services. It's either a good deterrent or a non-issue.

In any case, it's more a deterrent than having no other system in place. The aggregate (VAC, community review, and phone number) is decent and is more than a lot of other games do in regard to cheat prevention. I mean, if you're already on Steam, the 3 step verification is advisable.
