When a cell phone becomes so attached to the person's self that they can feel it vibrate or ring when it has not. This stems from a long term dependency on cell phone technology and can easily be remedied by not using cell phone technology for several weeks. The term Phantom Cell Phone Syndrome was first coined by Social Psychologist Bradley Ictech.
When you feel your cell phone vibrate in your pocket, but it is in the other room you have just experienced Phantom Cell Phone Syndrome.
the same as phantom limb syndrome, but when you don't have your phone in your pocket, yet you still feel the vibrations of getting a text/call. tends to stem from advanced cell phone addiction. usually takes 1-2 weeks of not having a phone to cure.
"I thought I got a text, but my phone isn't even in my pocket!", "dude, you have phantom cell phone syndrome!"
