puhelin vs. kannykkää, what is the difference? One is stationary and the other - mobile?

Yes, puhelin is like "phone", which is often stationary, and "kännykkä" is like "cell phone"

And still I have to find "puhelinasetukset" and from there to "kieliasetukset" in order to go back to Norwegian language on my phone when I try out the Finnish settings.

So, when you say "puhelin" is it always like an home phone, or office phone, or can it also be used interchangeably with mobile phones?

Puhelin means just a general phone. It can be used for any kind of phone, be it landline/cell/mobile/office/whatever.

Just out of sheer curiosity: what is the difference between phone ( correct) and telephone(incorrect)? And between "weird sound" and "strange noise"?
