Dean's voicemail, 5.12 Swap Meat

In Phantom Traveler, Dean's cell phone number is given: 1-866-907-3235. It is currently not active. If you phoned the number early in the season, the following messages (spoken by Jensen Ackles) would play:

Message 1:

"This is Dean Winchester. If this is an emergency, leave a message. If you're calling about 11-2-83, please page me with your coordinates."

Message 2:

"Dad, we really need to hear from you. Leave me a message, text me, check your jwinchester1246 gmail. Anything. We have new info."

Side note: In real life, Jared has twice tweeted the number (778) 237-3022. He eventually stated that it is the number to a prop phone that was used by Jensen on set.

In 2.13 Houses of the Holy Dean's phone is the 2006 Verizon Chocolate.

In 5.03 Free to Be You and Me, Dean's number in Sam's phone is (212) 555-0113.

Dean has owned a Motorola i850, an LG slide phone, and an unidentified flip phone (which could possibly be a LG VX8700). As of 6.14 Mannequin 3: The Reckoning, Dean owned a Nokia N78. The display image seems to be of his legs up on a table. In 7.17 The Born-Again Identity Dean's phone number is 785-555-0128.

In 9.02 Devil May Care Kevin answers what is supposedly Dean's previous phone, which he retrieves from a box of spare phones. It looks to be a Blackberry slider, like the BlackBerry Torch 9800.

As of Season 11 Dean has upgraded to an Apple iPhone.
