Hi friends, Do I need the preposition “on” before “my mobile” in the following scenario? Does my sentence sound natural to you? 1) If you have any clarification, please call my mobile. 2) If you have any clarification, please call on my mobile. Thanks in advance. Niwantha

The nuance changes in US English If you say "call on my mobile", you may mean 'use my cellular telephone (not yours) to place a call (to someone)'. "Call my mobile" means to 'place a call to my telephone number'.

No preposition is needed. 'Call my cell or call phone' sounds more American.

Niwantha I would pinch: call to my phone number

In this case you would NOT need to use ON. In American English, the word "mobile" is not used very often; they use "cell" or "cell phone" instead. I think it could be a British thing, or maybe South Asia (IND / PAK) thing. An American would say "If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to call my cell" or if formality is required, "If you have any further inquiries, please do not hesitate to call my cell phone."

As Paul said, no preposition needed.
