Help me chose a word, please!

EDIT: Thank you all! The dictionary doesn't always (but sometimes!) tell if a word is American or British English but I've got the answer now! :)

Which word is best - cellphone cell phone or mobile phone?

Context: X-files fanfiction; Mulder gets a phonecall when he is arguing with Scully:

"The sound of Mulder’s [---] put an end to their argument."

This is silly, I know...... but as I am writing this thing, I should probably pay attention to the details. I just can't remember right now (as if I haven't watched so much TV in my life!) which alternative is used more. Maybe it doesn't matter at all?
