A mobile phone with two electrodes on the back. Can be integrated in the battery, similar to the batteries that light up when the phone rings.
When you get an incoming call, the electrodes shock you. Your leg when placed in the pocket causing you to involuntarily kick. Your hand where you wind up
throwing the phone. Match different source numbers to distinctive shocks including different shock locations with a 3+ electrode phone.
Unlike a ringer or even a vibrating phone, the phone itself is completely silent on ring. Whether *you* are is your own problem.
