Hsv 1 from a telephone?

A lady at my job has two fever blisters on her mouth. I used her phone before realizing she had the cold sores. I've heard you can get HSV 1 from sharing utensils, so is it possible that I could get it from using her telephone? I already have HSV 2 and the thought of getting HSV 1 is quite disturbing. Is this a legitimate concern?

you won't get oral herpes from sharing utensils.

you won't get oral herpes from a telephone.

having hsv2 makes it unlikely you'd contract hsv1 later on too.
