I’m not a ‘crackberry‘ or a heavy cell phone user in general, but I do almost always have my phone with me and typically set it to vibrate mode. Some time back I began noticing that even when I don’t have my cell phone with me, or if I have it in a different pocket that I often fell the phone vibrating as if I am receiving a call. I instinctively reach down to answer when I realize the phone isn’t there or occasionally when the phone is there that it isn’t actually vibrating. It happens so often that I found it to be an annoyance. I have been convinced that this strange phenomenon was not common to others, I figured I must have just some unique hyper tension about receiving a call that I made myself think I was receiving a call.
To my surprise and relief, I have discovered that I am not so unique after all in this respect. I came across a CNN article entitled “Phatom Vibration shake ‘crackberry’ addicts, wherein they discuss this not so uncommon feeling.
…what a relief, now I can go back to feeling a little more normal. Let me know if you too suffer from Phantom Vibrations.
