    Yes, it can. Freelance work is now being done on cellphones, tablets and other mobile devices. 12% of freelance workers now do their work exclusively from a phone or tablet device. As more hires start freelancing instead of permanently taking employment with one company, the need for technology becomes even greater. It's also possible to have two SIM cards--one connected to one network for working purposes and another connected to a personal cellphone plan for making personal calls at night or when Wi-Fi isn't available--which allows you to work even when you're out of the office (or out of your country).

    It can be done on phone, but it also depends on what you are freelancing. Depending on the company and job scope, some companies require a lot of face to face time with colleagues and clients. But for those who work from home, they might find that a phone call is all they need for this type of position. Is there a better way to do writing/programming/etc from remote? In my opinion, this will come down to how dynamic your field is. One has to ask themselves if one would want to pay the cost of never being able to talk in person with their team or client at any point in time?

    Yes, it can. But at the same time there are many other setups freelancers work with - e.g., desktop computers equipped with graphics boards to help create game or interactive projects; laptop computers for working away from home; and tablet PCs (particularly useful when creating content while on the go). For instance, even though I used to work for a full-time company's IT department, freelancing has always been an essential part of my livelihood since 2003. That year marked the point when I became wedded to virtual personal assistants like Siri, Cortana or Google Voice (which likely forms some semblance of cognitive dissonance). I was fortunate enough never having to meet clients 'face-to-face' throughout my career.

    Yes, but you don't want it to replace all other forms of contact for your freelancing. Freelance work can be done on the phone with different clients. It is important that this does not replace traditional methods of maintaining contact with clients that are established relationships. Phone calls should not take precedence over email or text messages that are used to discuss project details and deadlines. Clients would expect prompt responses via the established method agreed upon before starting a contract together.

    Answer: Freelancers are digital entrepreneurs, so they may come from any background, at any skill level. You can find freelancers across all fields to get your project done. Yes it is possible to do freelancing on the phone.

    Freelance work requires an increase in communication skills due to clients being able to reach out over the internet and not just be available by location. Communication largely depends on the freelance's availability for that contact person's time zone too- making summer hours important for Western Europe & North America users, while winter hours are key for employees of Japan-based companies.

    It is possible to freelance with the phone, but it may be difficult and offer less flexibility. Freelancing on the phone is not ideal because many clients require video conferencing for crucial meetings and brainstorming sessions. Freelancers must always be prepared and accessible via email, Skype, or other network that their clients use. The freelancer cannot expect to do any work if they don't answer emails promptly as well as chat at their convenience during work hours without risking prompt dismissal by their client. However as a starting point for those who might want to try freelancing with the phone as their outlet it can be done remotely from anywhere if sufficient technology such as Wi-Fi is available.
