Why "por" and not something like 'al' or 'en la'

Because you are using the phone, and are not inside it or something. The use of 'on' in English is a little bit strange if you think about it, so it doesn't surprise me that Spanish doesn't have the same construction.

Strange. I just used that and for me, it wasn't.
