My situation might be slightly different than yours
because I'm telecommuting across an ocean. However,
after trying the reimbursement-for-phone-charges route,
my manager and I worked out that it would be easier all
around if he approved a corporate phone card for me. I now
do all of my phone meetings through that method and don't
have to do any paperwork for it. And if you don't already
have one, get a speakerphone or a headset. Your
chiropractor will thank you :->

One more suggestion: I now attend many more
general "all department" or "all division" phone
meetings than I used to, and if I can think of
a relevant one, I try to ask a question, too,
to prove that I'm there and attending. Do anything
you can do to show that you still consider yourself
part of your department.

Best of luck!
