The irrational and all-consuming fear of being out of cell phone contact.
Coined by British researchers. An abbreviation of no-mobile-phone-phobia.

"I left my phone at home this morning and I feel like I've lost a limb. I'm suffering from severe nomophobia."

"When my battery hits 5% I get jittery. I must be suffering from nomophobia."
