Nomophobia Risk


Loss or Theft

Carry your mobile phone out of view in a buttoned or zipped pocket or section of your bag.   

Avoid putting your mobile down in public places.

Regularly create a back up of your address book on a spare mobile phone, SIM card or computer.

Keep a separate record of your account number, phone number and security codes in a secure but convenient place in case you need them to report the loss of your phone to your mobile services provider.


Handset or SIM Card Failure

Buy a low cost mobile phone with a pay as you go SIM card package as a back up and make sure that you have copied your address book to the SIM.


Battery failure

Make sure you charge your battery before you leave the house. 

Keep a spare battery charger at work. 

Buy a spare battery as a back up.


Running out of credit





On pay-as-you go phones check your balance and top up your phone regularly.

If you can’t top up your phone direct from your bank or credit card make sure you remember to check your balance and top up when you are visiting a Post Office or other retail outlet providing top up services.


Keeping in contact while traveling abroad

Before traveling check with your Mobile service provider to make sure that you can send and receive calls while abroad.  

Find out how much calls home are likely to cost and shop around for better deals using international calling cards or payas you go SIM cards. 


Poor Reception

Just in case you venture into an area with poor reception make sure you have personalised your voicemail message. Callers are more likley to leave a messsage if they are sure they have reached the right person.
