Two questions:
Does his mother know he pasted all those cards on the door?
Can he make and receive calls while the phone is in the balloon?

Easily explainable: There is a trapdoor in the balloon he opens and closes before the balloon deflates.

Inflating the balloon creates the expectation that the cellphone will enter the balloon while it's inflated.

Indeed. And performing it like that as good as explains the method.

Good old youtube.

The straight YouTube performances are typically a clearer, more efficient and accurate revelation of the method than the many "tutorials." This is no exception.

Either turn it over convincingly -- i.e., not furtively and showing 95% hand and 5% balloon -- or don't turn it over at all. If you're turning it over to disprove something, you've already lost, because that's a suspicion you can't disprove. There's probably someone who can execute that turnover well; not here, though. For most performers, either it has to be believed that the phone is in the balloon because of the way the blow hole is oriented or the trick fails.
