"Do you have ‘ringxiety’? Anxious loners hear phantom phone calls" - The Telegraph. 2/4/2016.

Some mobile phone users report hearing ringing and/or feeling vibrations from their phone when no call or message has actually come in. In a recent study, Daniel Kruger and Jaikob Djerf found that people with attachment anxiety - worries about being abandoned or having unreciprocated feelings toward another - experience more of these phantom phone activations than others.
