Do you also say "cell" to a cell phone or do you always add "phone"?


Recommended Posts

This may sound a little strange. I need this information for a pun actually. :D So I drew a cell biologist as a cell (phone?) with a lab coat on. But I guess the pun would only work if in the english language you would call a cell phone a cell as well. I believe I heard stuff like "reach me on my cell" but I just want to make sure.

Would this - admittedly bad pun - work? I will attach my punny picture. 

Thanks for your help! :)

I think the word cell is understandable for the most folks in a casual conversation.

However, in a formal situation, I'd use cell phone just to assure the communication.
