How and When to Use the ☎️ Telephone Emoji

  • If you’re preparing the perfect answer for that “why don’t you ever call?” rhetoric, ☎️ may be a blessing. Here’s how – “You have a telephone too, don’t ya? It hardly takes 10 seconds to dial in known numbers ☎️”.
  • You could also use ☎️ while telling someone that someone else is on the phone – “She’ll call you back, relax. She’s been on the phone all morning ☎️”.
  • ☎️ is the perfect emoji to express telephone tag. For instance, “We played telephone tag for at least an hour ☎️ He wasn’t available when I called and I was trying to call him when he was trying me, ugh”.
  • You can use ☎️ while referring to phone booths too. Like, “I lost my phone and I waited forever to use the booth ☎️ But luckily I didn’t have to play telephone tag this time”.
  • If you’re indicating a landline number or a residential telephone number, ☎️ is mandatory.
