New York – The fact that we have used too much of the mobile phone , various research reports noted, makes it clear that the majority of us may have ‘nomophobia’ or the fear of being mobile less.
Cell phone addictions can be just as real as other substance addictions. And students between ages 18 and 24 send an average of 109.5 text messages a day and check their phones an average of 60 times per day.
However, too much time spent on mobile phone, may cause stress, lack of sleep and other problems.
