Usually in back pocket left if it is not in the carry bag because the wallet is in the back pocket right. Knife in right front along with watch, pill box, worry beads, loose and scrap money. Left is for the flashlight, extra ducats, Sensa Minx, keys when I am carrying them. Semi-ambidextrous. Write with the left, knife usage with the right. Phone is either hand. I think I use it to look crap up more than I talk on it. I sometimes front pocket the phone. Either side.
Phone in left front pocket, right handed?

I used to carry my phone in my front pockets, but I couldn't get my phone out when I was sitting
so I started carrying it in my back pocket, and I'd be sitting on my phone
finally, bought myself a defender style case that can be clipped onto a belt and all of my problems are fixed
the belt carry method works great for me, usually on the right side
it goes everywhere I go
stay charged, stay safe

If I am out and about walking around my phone sits in my back left pocket. When I sit down at a restaurant or bar it either goes on the countertop/table or my left front pocket in my pants (because I am right handed my right side pocket tends to be overloaded). At work with a uniform, it sits in my right shirt pocket.

Since I use a cane I often feel constrained with where I can place things.
If I want access to my phone at all, it has to go on my left side, the cane goes in my right hand.
That said, I've made a few modifications so that while left handed I can still unlock the phone and answer it pulling it from a pocket or a belt holster by the 2nd ring.
If I need to at that point, I will stop walking and take the call, or stop and pull my notebook and pen out of my right pocket to take notes in as the cane get's cradled.

Several carries depending on clothing generally in order of preference. I am right handed:
- shirt with left side breast pocket,
- warm vest left tummy pocket under big coat,
- farm/outside work coat inside left breast pocket
- Suit Jacket/blazer right outer and lower pocket, and last possible choice if can be avoided,
- Pants rear right pocket
I am sure I will eventually get around to making myself a belt case or even IWB holster fro it but the shoemakers kids have the worst shoes it seems. I am not a fan of the big clakity otter box belt case thingy it came with.
What nature requires is obtainable, and easily within reach. It is for the superfluous we sweat.

I'm another right hander/left pocket guy, similar to the OP. I carry my keys and knife as seen below in my right hand pocket. I'm in and out of my car all day so the phone comes out when I hop in the car and goes in the cupholder. I think it comes from driving so much that my keys are constantly in and out of my pocket so often it seems natural to use my strong hand.
All this may have to be re-evaluated though as I just purchased a pocket .380 and that will have to go in that right front pocket.
Here's how I carry my keys and knife.

Also, being right handed, I will have tools while working in my right hand more often than not and if I need to either check my phone or look something up, it's easy to do with my left hand while maintaining my right hand tasks.

I actually came across this very predicament today. Since I have switched pen types to a bolt-action for work (which I leave in my office but carry while on the clock,) I can more comfortably engage the action with my right hand. Before this pen, I had used a G2 Limited which utilizes a standard click-type action and led to me priming the pen as I changed hands and pulled it across my body. When I am on the clock and I also do not have very good cellular service in the metal building leading to using my phone minimally.
I now actually have a dual setup since my only left-pocket carry item for right now is my knife.
While at work my phone is in my left pocket so I can use my carry items while on the job, whereas when I am off the clock I have less of a reason to pull the knife for a task and all pocket carry items can be accessed with my left hand.
*Update 08.05.2016, after making the conscious choice for about a week I now comfortably carry my phone in my left pocket at all times and gear in my right pocket. *
