    communicate with each other with/over cell phones

    Hi,

    - People communicate with each other with cell phones and internet.

    I tried to create such a sentence. However, I think that using 'with' before 'cell phones' does not sound OK. I think it is better to put 'over' or 'via' instead.

    Am I right?

    - People communicate with each other over/via cell phones and internet.

    Thanks.

    I'd say "People communicate by mobile phone".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I am not a teacher.

    But you do talk to someone over/on the phone.
