    ''Please photocopy this page OR paper

    My respected teachers

    1: ''Write it on your phone and save it.'' OR ''Write it in your phone and save it.''?
    2: ''I'm at someone's home.'' OR ''I'm at someone else's home.'' ?
    3: ''I'll download this game to your phone.'' OR ''I'll download this game in your phone.'' ?
    4: ''Please photocopy this page OR paper.''?
    5: ''I am going to get this page OR paper photocopied.''?

    Thanks a million!

    As a native speaker of UK English, I would use the following forms....

    ''Write it in your phone and save it.''

    ''I'm at someone else's home.'' (If you're saying you're there and not at your own home).

    ''I'll download this game to your phone.''

    ''Please photocopy this page."

    ''I am going to get this page photocopied."
