    2) I bought it two years ago/before (what to use) Which do you think? And why?

    3) My exams are starting from/on tomorrow.(what to use) I would simply say "My exams are starting tomorrow".

    4) All pictures are in /on her phone..(what to use) There may be a mixture of responses to this. Personally, I would say "All the pictures are on her phone."
    See above.

    I would use "on" for the phone too, but I agree it can be mixed.

    "The pictures are in here somewhere.... if I can just remember how to access them."
    "I have some funny pictures of the cat that I keep on my phone."

    Both sound okay to me!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
