Rfv-sense: the fear of mobile phones. There's some stuff on the citations page, but no fear of mobile phones. —Internoob (DiscCont) 19:56, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

I split by etymology. Also, the most common sense mentioned is fear of being out of mobile phone contact (variously due to loss of phone, signal, credit/minutes). I found almost no support for a sense of fear or dislike of mobile phones, but I didn't look very hard. DCDuring TALK 20:23, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
