Phantom Phone Vibrations!!!

This happens to me from time to time....You feel the phone vibrate in your pocket like you are getting a call or text but when you check it nothing is incoming.

Beware of Phantom Vibration Syndrome, It Could Kill You America's Watchtower

There is actually an article on it...Don't know how legit it really is.... it came up on my search radar because its from the Manchester (NH) Union Leader and they Quoted people in the article from Merrimack NH (my hometown) but anyways I found it interesting because it does happen to me, and it happened A LOT when I had a Motorola Razor (not so much now that I have an LG shine)

Funny part is that my Wife also had a Razor and our teen daughter had a Razor and it used to happen to us all A LOT. Now that we all have other phones... Pan-tech matrix, AT&T Tilt and LG Shine... it still happens but not as much.

Anyone else out there experience this phenomenon? Is it the radiation from the cell phones altering my DNA? or am I just weird?

Happens to me too... a lot! But only when I don't have my phone in my pocket...

Never. And I also never use the vibrate functions on my phones.

Youre from merrimack?! Why havent we met at any of the MCB events? I go to school in Nashua.

My mom and I have both discussed this happening (have LG's). I get it a lot more when I'm expecting a call, so I think its a brain thing rather than an actual issue. My new phone is a touchscreen and it unlocks/butt dials all the time, so usually theyre not so phantom vibrations now.

I also feel weird and kinda panicky like im forgetting something when my phone isnt in my pocket.

It happens to me with my Moto Razor and used to happen with my Moto text pager I had for work years ago. It didn't persist during the time period I was gadgetless in between so I'm not worried. I'm looking to upgrade phones soon and wonder if it will continue if I choose to use a non Motorola device.

sometimes happens but it's always when I'm waiting for a reply. never happens when my phone isn't with me. I'm not worried about it

Seems everyone I know who had a razor experienced this sensation....The razors would also freak out the computer monitor right before a incoming call or text rang in.

The new phones don't seem to do it at all.

Makes me wonder what kind of radiation I was subjecting myself too when I was talking on the razor phones!

^Same. When my old motorola (prepaid) was near my computer or a radio, it would go crazy
