    Please give us a complete sentence to consider. Note my correction above - don't use non-standard abbreviations on the forum. "Cuz" is not a word.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Where I come from we usually say "flipping through () phone", where () = his, her, my, their etc.

    I don't see that scrolling is wrong, though.

    I'd "scroll through" something specific (pictures, emails etc) on my phone.
