"Phantom buzzing" - 80% of college students admit they experience major sign of phone addiction

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator


Have you ever experienced a phantom phone call or text? 

You're convinced that you felt your phone vibrate in your pocket, or that you heard your ring tone. 

But when you check your phone, no one actually tried to get in touch with you.

You then might plausibly wonder: 'Is my phone acting up, or is it me?'

Well, it's probably you, and it could be a sign of just how attached you've become to your phone.

At least you're not alone. 

Over 80 percent of college students we surveyed have experienced it. 

However, if it's happening a lot – more than once a day – it could be a sign that you're psychologically dependent on your cellphone.

There's no question that cellphones are part of the social fabric in many parts of the world, and some people spend hours each day on their phones. 

Our research team recently found that most people will fill their downtime by fiddling with their phones.

    Only 80%?

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    The other 20% are too busy searching for brains

    Or they couldn't find their cellphones.

    Pretty much one and the same to them.

  • I felt a phantom vibration once, in spite of being someone who never uses his phone (call history shows I've placed 8 calls so far this year, all to my wife).  Maybe it was a phone malfunction?
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.

     During the work week, I probably average 8 calls an hour. Not an exaggeration
