Resolves YES if phone number privacy AND Signal usernames are in a public release version of the Signal app on iOS OR Android. This means that one can hide phone numbers from people they are talking to, and people can add you via a username.

Signal may still require a phone number to sign up, and require a user to opt in to these features after signup.

As of this writing, these are in testing on the server and people can turn on the flags by building custom clients.
