I would make the body out of RKT's and cover in some melted candy melts to smooth the surface. Then cover it in 50/50 fondant and gumpaste mix to complete the shape. You can print the icons that go on top, using a tiny brush you can paint what is on the keys. Mix your color with some vodka and it will write very easily. Brush the screen with some silver dust and vodka mix. There was a picture on here the other day but, sorry I don't remember who did it.

Print a top view edible image of the phone then print again on card stock for the template cut cookie dough to shape, bake onto lolly stick then decorate with edible image. The cookie will stand up on the cake and be totally edible (gum paste is not really edible). This is the fastest way to get a realistic looking cell phone, you can add some icing detail to the image to get some texture. Here is one I did I even added a text to the image with my graphic program.
