Learn English – “talk over the phone” or “talk over phone”


We just talked over (the) phone.

  1. Should there be a "the" in front of "phone"? I.e., should "phone" be
    specific or not?
  2. If there should be a "the", should "phone" be "phones" instead,since
    there were two phones being used during the conversation?

We just talked over the phone.

Is what I've always used. I believe by "phone" we mean the phone lines, or phone system, rather than any physical phone.
