Divorce/Talaq Over The Phone

I need some info , about my marriage. My husband and I are separated for past one and a half year .
Trying to solve our issue . Day before yesterday , we had telephonic conversation .
He got pretty upset and angry during the conversation , he ended the conversation by saying I am giving you talaq . Just said once .

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

As per the situation described in your question, by issuing a divorce over the phone, one Talaq-e-Raj'ai(revocable divorce) has taken effect. During the period of 'Iddah, the husband can reconcile with the wife (i.e. take her back) without the need of performing a new Nikah.
