Hiv transmission through contact with blood outside the body

I have two questions please,

My brother's daughter took the mobile from an hiv person and played with it what if there was some blood on the mobile from the hiv person hand then she put her fingers in her mouth?
What is the risk of hiv transmission?

Another question if hiv person taking treatment but he missed only one dose is there is possibility for viral load to increase again?

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  ( phone which is not a risk for hiv.) No worries, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.

Thanks for your calming comment but if the instance done immediately after blood was on the phone and then my brother's daughter touched it immediately then put her fingers in mouth and if there was cut in mouth or something like

Please I asked another question above could you answer it please
This would still be a zero risk activity, touching something.  Anything outside the body is exposed to air and that renders this a nonevent.  The ONLY ways that HIV is a concern is penetrating, unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles.  That transmission, if you notice, is all INSIDE the body.  This is not a risk in any way.  
But sharing needles let the blood exposed to air before being injected to another person?
You are asking many questions, however the good thing about hiv prevention is the science is 40 years old so very proven that there are only 3 ways you can get it. Therefore, all you have to do to be safe is not do any of the 3 and you don't have to wonder about the millions of OTHER things people do. You didn't do any of the 3, so you should relax and move on from more fears about hiv, since hiv prevention is so straightforward.
