Just about done.

Thanks all for the help on this.
My apologies again to Eeshlo. Had no idea Yafray was still having toruble with Alphas.

I went on and did some simple models of the phones and textured them.

Attached is the final image ready to be composited.

Just one final question:

I like the graininess of the shadows…they work for this piece I think…but for futire reference, what controls the graininess?

Thanks again all.

i think you mean AO (ambient occlusion) this is located in the wolrld buttons

Right right, but what setting is used to reduce the graininess?

adjust the number of samples

Thanks fudge!
