Tell me please which sentences sounds more natural.

I always take my phone with me as I may need to make a phone call at any moment.

I always carry my phone with me as I may need to make a phone call at any moment.

I always bring my phone with me as I may need to make a phone call at any moment.

What I am trying to say is that I always have my phone with me. Is there any difference between the sentences? Are all of them natural sounding?

  • As a native English speaker, they all sound pretty natural to me and all convey the same idea. – Shino Feb 22 at 13:48

All are fine. Using "carry" would be a little less common. I would probably say, "I always take my phone with me, since I might need to make a call at any minute." That would be slightly less formal.
