The subject asks the question exactly.

"Do all new ads on CL now have to be phone verified?"

I just tried to place an ad in Los Angeles, in the for sale section, and was asked for Phone verification. I thought it was only the services and jobs section which needed PV ?

Worse than verifying telephone? Craigslist thinks my phone is either VOiP or a prepaid cellphone and it is a simple CenturyLink POTS ... plain old telephone service with same number for 10 years. So, I can't edit a post, though I did get one post up without a phone needing verification.

How widespread is this issue? I've tried to alert Craigslist, but get only boilerplate reply to email.
