"Suona il telefono."

Is there a reason why this can't mean "He rings the telephone"? Other than it being an unlikely thing to say, that is...

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you usually ring someone and not a telephone ?

Sure, but that doesn't change it's grammatical correctness. It COULD be used, it just isn't a usual thing to say.

Anyone else feel the need to sing the song from that one children's show, the Wonder Pets? "The phone! The phone is ringing!"

Nah, I think of the Alice Cooper song; The telephone is ringing. You got me on the line...
