    the right word

    Dear teachers,
    Please, prompt me the right verb.
    Here is the sentence:

    The secretary noticed the Director take the fax from the desk, read it, frown and pick up the phone / the phone receiver.

    What's better, pick up the phone or phone receiver, or is there a better way of saying it?

    the part of a phone that you hold in your hand and speak into; a telephone: to pick up the phone to put the phone down He left the phone off the hook as he didn’t want to be disturbed.
