    I don't see this as a major problem (your boss wanting to call you on your personal cell phone) & would tell your boss you will certainly do as requested.

    How about this? "Yes, boss."

    It may seem unfair to you that your boss wants to call you on your personal cell phone, which he does not pay for, but you have to decide where to draw the lines in life and what battles are worth fighting. From where I sit this seems like a fairly trivial matter and not where I would want to draw the line, but you are not me and will have to decide for yourself what is worth fighting for and when to "bite the bullet".

    This is my personal phone, for my personal use. How do I respond to him w/out losing my job? "Yes, sir."

    There is nothing unlawful or even unusual about the boss wanting to get hold of an employee outside of regular work hours should a need arise.

    We are not allowed to use our personal cell phones while at work. But my boss got very upset w/ me when I did not return his call when I was off the clock. i did not get his voicemail. I was told to have my personal cell phone with me on my days off in case someone needed to get in touch w/me and i needed to respond immediately. This is my personal phone, for my personal use. How do I respond to him w/out losing my job?
