The feeling that you get, usually in the leg or butt, when you feel as though your cell phone is vibrating but it is actually not.

Usually accompanied with distinct loneliness or want of companionship.

Increasingly common when the cell phone is always in the same place (ie. back pocket, side pocket, front pocket etc.)
