    Cell phone, BlackBerry users feeling phantom vibes

    Advertisement



    Many mobile phone addicts and BlackBerry junkies report feeling vibrations when there are none, or feeling as if they're wearing a cell phone when they're not.

    By ELLEN SIMON
    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    If your hipbone is connected to your BlackBerry or your thighbone is connected to your cell phone, those vibrations you're feeling in the car, in your pajamas, in the shower, may be coming from your headbone.

    The first time it happened to Jonathan Zaback, a manager at the public relations company Burson-Marsteller, he was out with friends and showing off his new BlackBerry Curve.
    "While they were looking at it, I felt this vibration on my side. I reached down to grab it and realized there was no BlackBerry there."

    Zaback, who said he keeps his BlackBerry by his bed while he sleeps, checks it if he gets up during the night and wakes to an alarm on the BlackBerry each day, said this didn't worry him.

    "As long as it doesn't mean a tumor is growing on my leg because of my BlackBerry, I'm fine with it," he said. "Some people have biological clocks, I might have a biological BlackBerry."

    possibly... I feel them also but only when wearing my BB then I touch it with the palm of my hand to see if the vibe was a real one. Only happens when I'm wearing it though at least once or more per week. Glad I'm not alone lol

    Hey I feel them too, its wierd but I thought it was part of my addiction, .... Ok it might be. So has anyone figured if this is a nerve sensory issue with the brain or a muscle spasm?

    Just for the record: it isn't just a guy thing. The vibration has become a biofeedback mechanism for me, so I get the good jolt even when it isn't buzzing. Glad I'm not the only one.
