Good News for Nomophobes – Never Cry Over Your Lost Cell Phone Again

Hey cell phone losers, ever heard of Nomophobia?  It’s the fear of losing one’s cell phone. Believe it or not, there are plenty of Google search results to prove it (and a Wikipedia entry!). Phobia or not, the thought of losing your phone probably sent a shiver down your spine.

There are numerous ways you might lose your cell phone. You could forget your phone at a bar or restaurant, like that poor soul from Apple who lost his iPhone. Or maybe you’re like my brilliant (but spacey) colleague who recently forgot her mobile in the back of a cab (insert bus, train or other means of public transport). Perhaps you are a new parent or pet-owner and accidentally let your little one run off with yours (they always find the most creative hiding places!). Regardless of how you might lose your phone, you just know it’s frustrating and something you don’t want to have to deal with!

And you’re not alone…

According to a global survey conducted by Synovate in 2009, most people would rather lose their wallet than their cell phone. Even more shocking news was reported by a 2008 UK study which found that women would be more upset about losing their mobile phone than losing their car! Amazing!

With over four billion cell phones in the world—there certainly are a lot to lose. In a recent post entitled What to Do Before you Lose Your Cell Phone from Live Science, they reported that each day Disneyland collects 300 mobile phones. The study also found that cab drivers in the Washington-Baltimore area alone collect nearly 9,000 (that’s DAILY folks).

Furthermore, the May 2009 National Center for Health Statistics’ survey on wireless phone use found that one in five (1/5) homes are wireless only—meaning no landlines. That means 20% of Americans rely on their mobile phones for ALL their phone calls. If you’re one of those people, I’m sure you will go to great lengths to make sure you never lose your cell phone.

I bet right about now you’re wishing there was a way to make sure you never become one of these statistics.

Lucky for you, we’ve come up with a way to ensure that you never lose your phone again. Our solution is called the ZOMM and it is the World’s First Wireless Leash for Mobile Phones.
