Collective Noun for Mobile Phones

I was having a conversation with a group of friends this morning when the subject of mobile phones came up as someone else we know had left theirs behind when they left.

I then asked what the collective noun was for a group of mobiles as I now had more than one with me. These are some of the answers:

    • Pest
  • Nuisance
  • Distraction
  • Annoyance
  • Irritation
  • Interruption

But for me, and this is a 13+ site so I think we are just about OK, the one that clinched it was:

  • A pain in the backside of mobile phones!

Feel free to replace the word backside with the one that fits with your countries alternative if you are outside the UK! (Arse was another suggested!)

What would you use as the collective noun for mobile or cell phones?
