9 out of 10 people have phobic fear of losing their cellphones.

According to recent study by Cisco, 9 out of every 10 people, aged under 30 in Austria suffer from Nomophobia. The survey polled 3800 people in Australia. Nomophobia or a no phone phobia is an anxiety which people face when they feel they could not get signal from a mobile tower, or run out of battery, forget to take the phone with them or simply could not receive calls, texts or emails. In short it is a psychological fear of losing phone. Cisco's chief technology officer said that it is happening subconsciously an one out of five people are texting when they are driving. For many under 30s, the smartphones have become an extension  of themselves, from the moment they wake up to the time they fall asleep. "It just speaks to addictive, compulsive, behaviours that we're seeing," an expert said.
