The false feeling of a cellular phone vibrating in your pocket, even when the phone is not there
Damn, I'm blowing up. Oh wait, just phantom phone.

The sensation of having your phone vibrate in your pocket, even occurring when your phone is clearly visible or somewhere else.
I thought I was getting a phone call, so I checked my pocket, but my phone was sitting on my desk. I'm so sick of phantom phone, dude.

The phenomenon where you feel your cellphone vibrate in your pocket or you hear it vibrate in the immediate area, when in fact, your phone has not vibrated at all and/or isn't even in the area.
Person #1: Dude. I totally though my phone just vibrated but I don't even have it with me. Wtf?!

Person #2: Yea man, just another case of phantom phone.
