Your cellphone is in your pocket. All of a sudden there is a vibrating sensation, so you check your phone and nothing! No call. No text. No photo or email. But you swear you felt the phone vibrating!

You're not alone, apparently. In one study, phantom ringing was experienced by 68% of people surveyed with 87% of those feeling them weekly! Are you one of them?

The 2010 study concluded that phantom vibration sensation was commonly felt by people who frequently use electronic devices. So perhaps our brains are being rewired for this technology, or maybe we just hope we have new text!
