    Most of the electronic today takes both 110 and 220 v. To verify yours, take a look at the phone charger, there should be a line say input requirement, if it says "input 100-240v~", meaning that it can take both 110 and 220.

    If it is just for 220v, you need to get a 110 to 220 V transformer.

    Depending on what the phone needs, it might be easier to find a 120 volt power supply that matches it. Check places that sell cell accessories.
