You can set a specific list's subscribe_policy to 0 using bin/ 
withlist.  (You won't be able to set it to 0 via the GUI or  
config_list without setting ALLOW_OPEN_SUBSCRIBE.)

$ bin/withlist -l mylist
m.subscribe_policy = 0

P.S.  I have been able to use the normal subscribe/confirm scheme  
from my phone, so it is probably a function of your carrier or your  
phone.  One quirk I've noticed in my lists is that if I use  
VERP_CONFIRMATIONS=Yes, the reply address gets truncated in the reply  
message, and I have to manually add the last few characters of the  
domain name.  In my case that is presumably a phone bug, since it is  
picking up fewer reply address characters than it allows me to enter  
and successfully send.
