are phone shift reports still acceptable?

  1. are phone shift reports still envogue? I am studying for my nclex in 3 days and going through the kaplan they say that face to face and taped shift reports are legal but it doesnt say anything about end of shift phone reports. When I was shadowing in a Pysc unit they gave report via the phone....just alil confused about this. any help is greatly appreciated.
