MasterPo agrees. Have all your resources at your finger tips.

Besides, it's reality. Whatever work you do your employer can't expect you to work in a sealed box all day anyway.

I think phone interviews are great opportunities for job seekers. They are a great time to learn more about the potential position/company without the nerves that can accompany a face-to-face interview. Typically they are a first round, "screening" process to weed out the less qualified candidates. So the person conducting the interview is usually equipped with some specific questions designed to focus on the hiring manager's priorities, in addition to the usual "getting to know you" questions. This means, for the candidate who is paying attention, that you have a distinct advantage should you progress to the next step. If they asked lots of questions about your experience with the ABC computer program, it's a fair bet that they really want someone who can use the ABC computer program. If you can, talk that up in the next interview!

I also always remind my candidates (I'm a recruiter) to stand or sit up straight during a phone interview (I like to walk around) and make sure to SMILE, just like you would in a face-to-face interview. It comes through in your voice.
