    So here are some things you might consider
     
    You can house rule that buying the skill roll over 18- costs double (like Normal CHA Maxima), so players are less likely to go there.  But then give them an automatic +1 to the skill roll for Complimentary Knowledge Skills (or other appropriate skills).  That encourages your players to make more scholarly wizards with a coherent set of KS and spells
     
    You could also require that mages have a Magic Skill.  But all spells must take a -1/4 Variable Limitation instead of RSR.  That limitation could be RSR, but since Foci are more reliable, most mages will use Foci and then only resort to RSR in a pinch.  This has multiple benefits.  First, most players will spend fewer points in Magic Skill to buy it high since they aren't using it as often.  Second, since they aren't making all those skill rolls, game play goes faster.  Third, it is a lot more dramatic when the wizard has to get off a spell when he has been disarmed, but it also means the wizard isn't completely helpless without Foci.

    I remember an opinion from somewhere that just because Pathfinder (and D&D, by extension) had rules for something (class, race, etc), the DM was not obligated to use them in a campaign. For example, in a low fantasy game, you might have witches and shaman, but not wizards or sorcerers.

    Ambidexterity is specifically built as PSLs offsetting the off-hand penalty (6e1 447). Did you mean that they couldn't be used to offset penalties for lack of weapon familiarities?

    And if the drain/aid/blast/entangle can only be used on combination with the kick/punch (not by themselves), you would actually put a Linked limitation on them, not a Trigger advantage.

    Since you mentioned being worried about making it cost too much.

    The special effect of any powers from the pool would be, "magic." This might not seem like much of a restriction, but, "Dispel Magic" would work against any of them.

    Another thing about cellphones worth noting is that you can't have a secret identity and have one. Apart from collecting all sorts of identifying information, cell phones are easily cracker, and the hacker can access not only your data but your camera and microphone. So a superhero in their costumed identity could at most use a prepaid "burner" phone.
