Man. I keep choosing the word "Handy" from the word bank. My fault for going too fast. It's 2018. I have to mentally override the reflex that the default for telephone isn't a cell phone, especially in the context of asking to use a phone.

'Kann ich dein Telefon "brauchen"' statt "benutzen" sollte nach meiner Meinung auch akzeptiert werden, da dies ├╝blich ist.

Aber nicht in der Form. ...Du meinst sicher: "Ich brauche mal dein Telefon."
