    If you can't find a way to write how the viewer finds out what the phone conversation is about, then don't have a phone conversatiton at all, or have the voice of the other person on the phone audible as well
    Actually I did see a clever cheap one on Jonathon Creek where the prop was an upside-down pocket camera - the call was just a pre-recorded video of someone pretending they were Skyping, to which the actor responded during the pauses.

    By showing both caller and recipient it didn't matter that it wasn't exactly like a real call - we got both sides of the conversation

    I think he started it, and it was adopted by the makers of Resident Evil (and then used in myriad other games, from memory...)

    They use it in many comedy scenes.
    Bill Cosby's natural childbirth story is unmatched.
