Can we explain why is it "gebeld worden" ? And not something like "wordt....gebeld", i believe it must something to do with "Ze wil".

"Ze wil niet worden gebeld op haar mobiele telefoon" was also accepted when translating from English to Dutch, so it seems that both ways are fine.

Why is the phrase 'op haar mobiele telefoon' at the end of the sentence, not immediately after 'niet'?
