Given the near-ubiquity of cell phones these days, it should come as no surprise that some unsettling urban legends and creepy stories have begun to be associated with the devices. YouTube user Top5s has compiled an enlightening look at some of these unnerving tales which constitute a kind of modern folklore. Whether these stories are simply the result of the virtual campfire that is the internet or actual eerie events is anyone's guess, but in light of the highly personal nature of cell phones, they're often more unnerving that your average phantom hitchhiker encounter.
One incident detailed in the video centers around a man who was vacationing in Ireland and inadvertently left his phone behind in the hotel room. Upon his return to where he was staying, he spotted the device sitting in a corner, but suspected that perhaps a maid had left it in that curious location. Things really got strange when he perused the photos on his phone and found an image (seen above) that was apparently taken while it had been left in the room and showed a pair of unidentified people seemingly lurking in a dark doorway.
