When I'm on my Dahon foldie, my phone usually goes in my work bag that goes in my rear basket. On my other two bikes (on the fairly rare instance that I use either of them for commuting) I have top tube bags and that's where the phone goes on them.

But it leads me to wonder if you can get the same phone number on two phones. I might consider a smart phone if I could keep the flip phone as well and just turn on whichever one I wanted to use.
Phone numbers come with the sim card (not with the phone) You can use two or more phones using the same sim card, and in international travel, you just switch your sim card for the new country you just arrived in and keep using your good old familiar device you been using at home

Some credit cards include insurance for your device for free if you pay your monthly phone bill through them, Mine covers up to $600 for free up to twice a year with just a $20 premium per incidence, There are options out there for insuring your device,
