I translated this as 'you must not phone' - why is this wrong?

does dim rhaid ... - there is no need...

rhaid i chi beidio รข ... - 'you need to refrain from ...' which is better translated as 'you must not ...'

Thank you - that has now been put right in the course materials, although it may take a little while for the correction to appear in Duolingo.

I translated it as "You need not phone". I guess people just don't talk like that! :)
