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. Apr 25, 2011 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: 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 Apr 25, 2011 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

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:

    @MickyK I do not know such thing. Please ask a new question if you can't find a solution by searching "Skype" here.

I found the fontawesome5 package very helpful and easy to use. First found in this link: https://latexdraw.com/fontawesome-ready-icons-to-use-in-latex/



    \faIcon{phone} \faIcon{phone-alt} \faIcon{phone-slash} \faIcon{phone-square} \faIcon{phone-square-alt} 
    \faIcon{mobile} \faIcon{mobile-alt}
