Nine out of every 10 people aged under 30 admit to suffering the new age phenomenon of “nomophobia”, the fear of having no mobile phone, a survey says.

Telecom giant Cisco, in a survey conducted on 3,800 people in Australia, found nine out of 10 in the group aged under 30 were addicted to their smartphones and became anxious when their phone went missing, the ‘Courier Mail’ reported.

“It just speaks to addictive, compulsive, behaviours that we’re seeing,” an expert said.
