I've chosen to create my resume in LaTeX ( out of curiosity ).

I thought printing a "clean" symbol of a phone before my phone_no will look nice ...

Is there such a symbol? any packages?

    Have a look at “How to look up a math symbol?” for ideas how you can easily find a particular symbol, including non-math symbols like a phone. – Martin Scharrer Apr 25 '11 at 15:42

    It's also unnecessary unless you want to distinguish a land line from a wireless. Otherwise it's just a phone number, and everyone will recognize this. – Emre Apr 25 '11 at 16:42

    @Emre: unless you're trying to tell aliens how to call you. They will need to know they first have to locate a device that looks like that before dialing. :-P – Matthew Leingang Apr 25 '11 at 16:57

    The moderncv package is definitely worth a look. It uses the telephone icon, a cell-phone icon and a few others for the contact-info block. And besides, it just looks good. moderncv info on ctan – Tim A May 1 '12 at 20:07

DeTeXify gives the following packages and symbols for a (old-fashioned) land-line phone and a mobile phone:

You can easily find such symbols in the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List. For example, from bbding, wasysym and ifsym:

Just look out for \Phone, \phone and \Telephone.


The marvosym package provides \Telefon:
