Phone refers to a speech sound, such as [p], [ph], and [b], used by any language. It is the minimal unit of sound.

In psychology, the phone (short for telephone) is often studied as a means of communication and a tool for social interaction. The phone allows people to communicate with each other remotely, and can be an important way for people to stay connected with others, particularly in situations where face-to-face communication is not possible.

There are many ways in which the phone can impact psychological processes and behaviors. For example, research has shown that phone use can affect social connectedness, communication patterns, and even sleep patterns. The phone can also be used as a tool for therapy, with psychologists using phone or video calls to conduct sessions with clients who are not able to meet in person.

Other areas of psychology that may be influenced by phone use include social media, texting, and online communication, which have all become increasingly prevalent in recent years.
