What's the slang word for "mobiltelefon"? In English it could be many things (phone, cell, mobile, etc), in French "portable", in German "handy"... just wondering =p

Mobil or telefon is often used

In Belgium the normal word for it is GSM, which is the abbreviation of Global System for Mobile Communications, or also the french equivalent Groupe Sp├ęcial Mobile.

Can you accept mobile phone please? We don't tend to use cellphone in the UK.

And in the US, we write it out as two words. I don't recall ever seeing it as one before; it looks wrong.

Can this be used to mean "she has his telephone number" or is it restricted only to having the physical device?

No, this is about the device.

"hun har hans mobiltelefonnummer" is about the number.

In England we say mobile phone (which is more like the Danish)

Why hans and not hendes ?

She has his phone, not hers
