Have you tried a shaker can? Take a tin can and wash it out really well then fill it about 1/4 of the way full of small rocks, duck tape the top closed then whenever the phone rings and she starts barking shake it and tell her in a firm voice "No Bark" or "Quiet" when she is quiet tell her either "Good Quiet" or "Thank You"and give her a treat. It should help.
