What is the point of doing all this? Do you really wish to do this? You
are going to give them your phone number and I really don't see
any point of trying to hide your ip from them.

Anyways, imo you should just use orbot (probably dead) or something like
that and route all your traffic using orbot vpn (it sets up a tunnel if
you want to route other apps) or whatever you want and set that vpn to
`always on`. Idk what else you can do, also your first method of routing
your traffic through your computer is not that good.

If you are real serious about this thing then just setup a virtual
machine and route all traffic from that vm through Tor. This is the
best method that comes to my mind.
