Cannot Sign Up Because Previous Owner of Phone Number Still Holds Account

I signed up for a new line with a new phone number this January, 2022.

Since then, I'm having troubles signing up for apps/programs using this new phone number because the previous owner of the phone number still holds accounts using the phone number.

Please help. Thank you.

That's weird. If someone else is using the phone number, you'll have to get a different one.
