The fear of being out of mobile phone contact. The term is an abbreviation for "no-mobile-phone phobia". It causes physical side effects such as panic attack, shortness of breath, dizziness, trembling, sweating, accelerated heart rate, chest pain and nausea.

SecurEnvoy's study found that 70% of female respondents fear losing their phones, compared with 61% of male respondents. However, men are more likely to have two phones than women, which may account for that discrepancy.

People 18-24 tend to be the most nomophobic (77%), followed by people aged 25-34 (68%). The third most nomophobic group is 55 and older.
Oh no, I can't find my cellphone ANYWHERE and I'm nomophobic - what if someone calls for an emergency, what if someone stole my phone? I'm panicking, help!!

1. The fear of leaving Uptown.
"I can't come over to your house. It's north of Mockingbird and I'm nomophobic. I suffer from nomophobia."

A nomophobe is a person suffering from nomophobia. You know the people I mean, the ones with a mobile phone stuck to their ear. If they aren’t talking on it they’re fiddling with it in some bizarre form of electronic masturbation. If they stop for more than five seconds, a strange glazed look comes over them, starting at their eyes but gradually taking over their whole face until they either start chattering rubbish to somebody or fiddling with the thing like Nero on steroids. When you next see one take a really good look as they are a dying species, too busy playing with their phones to breed.
Nomophobe, a sad act constantly pissing about with a mobile phone.
