The vocab match earlier in this lesson had "celular" match "cell phone", so I think it should work. Flag it

Since "cell phone" and "mobile phone" are synonyms, "teléfono movil" and "teléfono celular" also should be. I reported this too.

Seriously? This did not accept “my cellular telephone” as correct, suggesting that “telephone” is the wrong word and that the correct answer is “my cellular phone.” Telephone and phone mean exactly the same thing in English; they are synonyms, with phone originating as a shortening of telephone. This is crazy!
