The irrational fear of being misunderstood when speaking over the phone as opposed to in person. Usually coincides with the inability to display hand movements and gestures, leading inevitably to misinterpretation.
I was speaking to Sam the other day, and I said something which he took completely the wrong way. If only we'd been speaking in person, damnit! Total misundertelephobia!
