I dont know if i have ever had the symptoms of nomophobia, but when i lost my phone last year, it was a complete nightmare as i had to build up my contacts list again...and was quite upset knowing that some of the contacts i had, i will probably never be able to get again..Then i discovered Zyb, which allows you to back-up all your contyacts on for free. Youc an save and synchronize your contacts, pics, calender and tasks and the best part is that Zyb will even sync your data to another brand phone if you should ever loose the one you have... perfect!
