    How Many of You Suffer From Ringxiety or Phantom Vib With Your Berry?

    Advertisement



    I didn't know such terms existed but I've been suffer from them for so long. Which is why I set my ringer to silence all the time but I still get them occasionally once awhile.

    When I'm down stairs watching TV and my BB is up in my room, I would get ringing sounds in my head and would run up to grab my BB and there would be no missed calls or messages. It's so weird. Anybody else suffer from this?

    How about psychic rings? Whenever there is a an incoming call or text, I would pick up my BB 5 seconds early before my berry would light up with an incoming call or text is displayed. I'm no psychic but that is just too weird for me. Hehe.

    The phantom LED gets me all the time. I have mine set to purple for incoming email and see imaginary purple lights all day long!

    I also used to have "Bike Bell" as my tone for sms and had to change it because I realized they use that a lot in comercials on tv, like pavlov's bell, every comercial I would be grabbing for my berry

    lol wow I knew it couldn't just be me. I feel all weird when I go to grab my berry (every couple of seconds, I just can't get this amazing piece of equipment out of my hands)
    and there is nothing going on on it.

    and how the people around me laugh. "your obsessed with that thing!"

    I knew I could not be alone in this.

    My brother is like that, he will ask me to grab his phone for him if he is in another room and just before i hand it to him, it will start to ring. I think we have all done that once or twice by fluke, but he is fairly consistent. I get phantom vibrates all the time.

    I freak out when I do hear a ringing phone. I love my bb, but I hate speaking on the phone. And when it rings, checking who is calling makes my heart race. Don't know why.

    I used to get that problem when I had a nextel phone back in the days. I have my blackberry set to vibrate at all times so I have to check it from to time to make sure I don't miss anything. I would probably see it as more post partum berry syndrome.
