An individual who is on his or her phone either texting, calling somebody or just going through their applications while their surroundings are socializing. Basically a person who does not want to be there and using a phone as a coping mechanism. Some people may find this normal, but most find this irritating and annoying. These kind of people are spotted in clubs, movie theaters, schools, during dates, bars and everywhere else. Another way of spelling is phone-ho
Stop being a phono and come joining the rest of us. Hey guys, do you smell that? It reeks of phono in here. Dude, during my date, she was being a phono the whole time. This phono bitch next to me is distracting me from the movie.
