Vibrations: Do You Feel Phantom Buzzes?

by Eric Stewart on Feb.13, 2008, under Cell Phones & Providers, Technology

This is mostly directed at the Blackberry, pager, or users of other electronic devices that put them on vibrate from time to time. See, my Blackberry knows when it’s in its holster, so it has “ring” settings specific to the holster – meaning I can have it vibrate when it’s in there before it actually makes a noise.

Thing is, I occasionally feel a light buzzing on my hip – enough to where I wonder if I actually felt it, but also enough to where I usually pull the thing out and check it to make sure it didn’t buzz. And most of the time, it hasn’t.

Does this happen to you?
