Has this ever happened to you – you’re walking around, say, the mall or the boardwalk, you have your cell phone in your hip pocket, feel it vibrate, take it out only to discover that you didn’t actually get a phone call or text message? You just got a “phantom ring“.

It happened to me this morning when I was walking my dog. I was sure I felt my phone vibrating, I took it out…nothing. At least I’m not the only one that this happens to. In fact, as you can see from this USAToday article from 2007, it not only happens to other people, but it’s been “a thing” for a number of years now. In fact here’s an article from Australia looking into some reasons that we get the “phantom ring”.

So have you been a victim of the phantom vibrate? Take a quick second to vote, then feel free to leave a comment below and tell us about it!
