Being generally lazy with a task. Doing it half-assed instead of with your full ass.
Guy 1: Did you watch the last season of the O.C.?
Guy 2: It sucked.
Guy 1: Yeah, they really phoned it in on that one. They just kept killing people off and making up new characters.

Man 1: I phoned it in on work on friday. I basically did nothing all day but eat a sandwich.

(verb) to have completed an action, especially giving a performance, while showing a minimum of effort.

Generally used to refer to performances that border on unprofessional. The intended audience would have been similarly disappointed if the person had delivered the performance by speakerphone, in order to spend more time on leisurely pursuits.
"Her song and dance routine at the music awards was horrible! She looked out of shape, she forgot half the words... she basically just phoned it in."

A device that was originally created for contacting someone over long distances without much effort.

Today, there are many variations of the phone but most of them do every stupid thing that you don't need it to do. Because of this, the corporations jack the price up to inhumane levels.

It's still possible to get a normal phone which does what it was originally intended to do but if you have one your friends will make fun of you.
I got this new phone and could not figure out how to make a call on it. I could, however, summon a giant robot and arm a nuke fairly easily.
