Could you tell me which preposition I use in the following sentence before phone: on or from?

If I can't access the internet on/from my phone, what would you suggest I do.

On and from both sound OK to me. (A web search for "access the internet on/from my phone" gives plenty of hits either way.)

From gives a slight impression that the phone's location is being contrasted with the remote location of the internet. Your phone is trying to "reach" the internet.

On works because you are on your phone when using it.

With would also work.


NGrams produces only one result for "internet * my phone" and that is on my phone
