A sensation that a cell phone is vibrating when it isn't. Experienced by someone who is used to carrying around a cell phone in a pocket or close the their body. This phenomenon can occur even if the person doesn't have the cell phone. Similar to phantom limb syndrome.
Whoa, I could have sworn my cellie was vibrating. But when I went to get it out of my pocket, it wasn't even there. I guess I just had a phantom cell experience.
