IR35 - company mobile versus personal mobile

I'm an IT contractor looking for a new phone contract, and it seems to me that personal contracts are cheaper than business contracts (I can't directly recover VAT as I'm on the flat rate scheme) to the extent that even if I can't offset the cost against tax, the personal contracts are marginally cheaper.

But, my question is - does it reinforce my outside-of-IR35 stance if my company is providing me with a mobile phone?

thanks,

Graham
