What About You Wednesday – Do You Suffer from Phantom Phone Syndrome? [POLL]
Phantom Phone Syndrome, or more appropriately Phantom vibration syndrome is real. According to Wikipedia :
Phantom vibration syndrome or phantom ringing is the perception that one's mobile phone is vibrating or ringing, when in fact the telephone is not doing so.
Phantom vibrations develop after carrying a cell phone set to use vibrating alerts. Researcher Michelle Drouin found that almost 9 of 10 undergraduates at her college experienced phantom vibrations.
I am not sure that I want to know what this means about our 'Always On' society and how we are attached to our mobile devices. I do know that this has happened to me numerous times. I won't go as far as once a week, but this morning I swore that my phone was vibrating in my back pocket, when in fact, my phone was in the front seat beside me... not ringing, or vibrating.
What about you? Do you suffer from Phantom Phone Syndrome? Be honest and take our quick poll.
