Ever awoken in the middle of the night, or had a chill run down your spine thinking that something otherwordly was happening… something like a (cue scary music) PHANTOM CELL PHONE VIBRATION?
This has happened to me. I thought it just meant I needed a vacation. Turns out I’m not alone. Many cell phone and BlackBerry users report feeling vibrations when their phones are, in fact, silent. Doctors say the phenomenon may be somewhat related to the “phantom limb” that amputees experience, and also rampant crackberry addiction. See what Jon Kaas, Centennial Professor of Psychology, has to say about this creepy phenom in a fascinating, and kind of disturbing, article on the ABC News site.
