I sincerely hope it does, but this is why I am not optimistic: https://trisquel.info/en/forum/puris...ng-libre-phone

and this is what you might like instead:

and this is what I, personally, actually use for a "phone number":

Best of luck and hth

saying "this" and pointing to a forum thread where people generally hate on a commercial product for 2 pages - also outdated, last post in 2017 - you really should specify what you mean.

I am by no means blue-eyed about puri.sm, but that phone is currently the only succesful effort to bring together free hardware & free software in a smartphone.

now that looks very interesting.
will have to take a closer look - unless you'd like to walk me through the process?

It looks like you don't know. That software comes from the Google Play-Spyware/Malware Store. There is nothing good about software that you have no control over, collects data from you and sends it all back to Google which sells it to whoever pays them for it.

Thanks, that's what I am talking about but what they are wrong in that article in that link is there are no custom ROMs available unless you can afford paying for a custom phone.

erm, what?
That article just lists alternatives to replace Google apps/stuff, i.e. maps, play store, youtube, gmail, google account itself etc.
It talks about the option to install a different ROM, but no custom devices are mentioned - and you don't need one:
E.g. LineageOS installs perfectly fine on a long list of standard consumer devices:
