A supernatural and otherworldly phone, but more commonly a cellphone. It may have the ability to tell the future, it could act as a personal teleportation device or even as a weapon. It may also allow conversations with the dead or supernatural and probably needs Super Cell Reception.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })This type of phone tends to crop up in Urban Fantasy works. Also, in sci-fi, instead of having paranormal origins the phone might be highly technologically advanced as an excuse to do all sorts of impossible things. In horror, the phone is usually an Evil Phone and might even be an Artifact of Doom.
See also Phone Call from the Dead and Reinventing the Telephone. Related to Magical Camera (especially if it's a camera phone). Constrast Cell Phones Are Useless.

Shin Megami Tensei IV and especially Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse keep this concept rolling, mostly in an example of Technology Marches On. It turns out you don't need a bulky wrist-mounted computer gauntlet or a specialized PDA disguised as a handgun in the age of smartphones. They even cover Demon Fusion better than the older devices did.

In The World Ends with You, the main characters receive the rules for the day's games from the Reapers with their cellphones through text messages. Joshua, however, kicks it up a notch using his to use initiate his attacks which include dropping objects and Jesus beams on his enemies.
Later on, Neku's phone gets an upgrade that allows it to take pictures of the past, which is used less frequently than you'd think.

In Bleach, some Shinigami, Rukia at least, are shown to use special cell phones to detect spiritual pressure in a close location in the World of the Living and to communicate with Soul Society. Lampshaded by Ichigo when he learns Urahara gave one to Uryuu during the time-skip: when Uryuu tells Ichigo to text him, Ichigo points out that a Soul Society phone isn't going to be compatible with "normal" phones.

In the Miraculous Ladybug episode "Lady Wifi", the Villain of the Week gets her powers from her smartphone, which is being used as the vessel for an akuma. She can teleport between phones, and launch runes that freeze people in place or hijack television screens to broadcast the images of her choice. This also means that none of her powers work if she doesn't have a wifi signal.

Shin Megami Tensei:
Played with in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. In the first game, the protagonists receive COMPs - "Communications Players" that look like DS systems - which have been hacked to use the Demon Summoning Program; not quite cell phones, but in much the same spirit. The second game does use cell phones, but there's nothing inherently unusual about them: they only become unusual once the Demon Summoning App is force-installed on them.

Eden of the East:
The Numbers all have phones that can call Juiz, who will grant any request within the realm of their 10 billion yen budget.
Though Taishi in The King Of Eden shows that Juiz can't do absolutely everything, as his crazy demands to get Akira and Saki to take a shower together for his movie just gets Juiz angry and frustrated at him.

There have been several iterations of Power Rangers/Super Sentai wherein their cellphones have been incorporated with their morphers. How many of them see regular use as phones depend on the series. Owing to the age of the franchise, they started out as flip-phones, then got progressively sleeker, and the most recent case resembled a smartphone.

The Prague Cemetery mentions the Arcula Mystica, which is a diabolical telephone of which there are seven in existence. It operates wirelessly and is even able to communicate directly with its owner if he's away from it. This is one of the many creative fabrications of Real Life hoaxter Léo Taxil, who features in this historical novel.

Early on in Undertale, you get a cellphone which is by all means pretty normal, capable of making phone calls, although how a cellphone can get reception deep underground is never explained. Later, you get an upgrade to your phone that allows you to access your item storage chest at any time and adds a second chest, unless you follow a specific story route that causes the NPC who provides it to not appear.

In Dial H for Hero there was a mysterious Transformation Trinket that appeared to be a rotary dial with alien script instead of numbers attached to a strap. Later adaptations attached the rotary to actual phones, with origins in a civilization terminally dependant on similar devices. The 2018 title runs full tilt into this and introduces four, color-coded dials, all mounted on and operated like various rotary dial phones, with unique transformations, whose effects can be transmitted through phone connections for mass empowering.

In the The X-Files episode "Christmas Carol", Scully receives a phone call from a mysterious woman who sounds just like her dead sister Melissa. She urges her to help a little girl who turns out to be Scully's biological daughter. The FBI was able to trace the address and it's confirmed that a call came in from that place, but there was no outgoing call from that residence and their phone had been off the hook.

In Another World with My Smartphone's main gimmick is that after God mistaking kills Ordinary High-School Student, Touya Mochizuki, too soon, he decides to give the boy a second chance at life in a magical fantasy world while giving Touya one wish to make up for killing him. Touya asked him if he could keep his smartphone. Now it has service in and GPS maps of said fantasy world, can access the internet of Touya's home universe, and can make direct calls to God. Touya mostly uses it for maps, selfies, and looking up how to make ice cream online.

The mental radios from the Golden Age Wonder Woman comics (Wonder Woman (1942) & Sensation Comics) manage to combine this with Reinventing the Telephone, because even though the "radios" allow the user to use a form of telepathy to connect with the person being contacted the things are pretty much never used to do more than, essentially, FaceTime.

In Hunter × Hunter, Shalnark uses his cell phone, Black Voice, as his weapon of choice. It lets him mind-control anyone he places a receiver on (and seems to control what they say via him texting the phrases). He can also stick a receiver on himself to give himself a power boost, though he can only move by inputting commands into the phone, and it quickly exhausts him of his energy. It can work as a normal cell phone. Black Voice has since fallen into the hands of Chrollo. Chrollo can exploit Black Voice even further than Shalnark could, as he has access to two receivers whereas Shalnark could only use one.

UQ Holder!: has literal magic smartphones: they're non-corporeal and fulfill all the functions of a modern phone and more. In fact, one can literally purchase magic spells (magic apps) and use them from the phone rather than learn the spell the old-fashioned way. That said, magic apps do tend to be weaker or less useful than spells cast by an actual mage, who probably also knows when and how to use the spell more effectively in the first place.

The Hotline in Control, a red rotary phone (with a missing dial) that serves as a direct line between the Director of the Federal Bureau of Control and its Board, a sort of benign Eldritch Abomination. Only the Director is allowed to use it; anyone else who tries suffers a gruesome but unspecified fate. The worse a Director suffers is a little Psychic Nosebleed. It also allows you to hear the final thoughts of the FBC’s previous director, recently deceased, providing you with a lot of important context and knowledge about the Bureau.
