Cell Phone Dream Meaning

Phones are often incorporated in our dreams as symbols of internal and external communication between two parties.

Cell phones are metaphoric symbols that contain a deeper meaning reflecting some sort of personal connection. Depending the context of your dream the cell phones may appear to be broken, lost, unable to dial, stolen or even exploding. These clues determine if this internal connection is damaged or healthy.

In order to properly analyze your dreams you will need to take into account what your cell phone means to you. It can be as simple as communicating with others, or possibly related to your image, identity or persona – the aspect of someone’s character that is presented to or perceived by others.

Phones may also be seen as a metaphoric symbol as a part of your image (persona) who you are and what you share with others. The phone in your dream becomes more symbolic if you use your phone to seek validation, approval and admiration from others.

Cell Phone Symbolism:

  • Keeping in touch with people
  • Safety and emergency
  • Security
  • Contains personal experiences
  • Information
  • Image and self confidence

Broken Phone Dream Meaning

Dreaming of a broken phone is becoming more and more common these days. However, they do contain a valuable clue relating to what you value important in life is now being inconvenienced. The feeling experienced when you crack your phone would be frustration, a need to fixed and distortion. This feelings would apply to a specific situation in your life, or possibly an event that will take place in the near future.

A cracked or broken phone can also reflect internal or external issues related to communication. The people who are around you or who you might be trying to call might give you a hint. It’s not uncommon that these dreams are metaphoric to phyical issues. If you where to experience a cracked, broken, or tear in your body its possible your dream might put the image of the phone.

Missed or Lost Phone Dream

Who was the missed call from? Often times these symbols reflect missed or lost opportunities relating communication or connection with the person who tried calling. A symbol to become more aware of your surroundings as you might have missed something important.

Losing your phone is a fairly common dream symbol that brings your attention to personal awareness; or lack their of. The location and people around you are clues provided to help narrow down the meaning of the dream. The feelings of vulnerability as you are unable to find something (communication) within to connect to others. It might also be a symbol of a lack of security in your life.

Receiving or 911 Call

These are often positive dream symbols that suggest a connection you have with this person. Talking on the phone implies a unconscious expression voiced though the call. If you are talking to a someone who is dead connects you with unconscious feelings or actual contact.

Often times calling for 911 can be impossible task in our dreams. Trying to call an ambulance, firetruck or police to your rescue is metaphoric need for assistance in your life. An inability to fix this inner conflict you will have trouble calling.

I had a dream that my cell phone turned into paper. I was trying to use it to contact my girlfriend (in the dream). We had a relationship and been together for a while but I was unaware of this until last night. I was trying to find her name but kept forgetting it, then once I got some help to try and find it – or her name – my phone turned into pieces of paper. Funny thing is, I could still call her on the paper phone. I also had two dogs with me, big dogs as well,… Read more »

Just had a seemingly very long, very disturbing dream in which I was at a big event and got separated from my parents. Kept trying to call them on cell, but couldn’t access the “contacts” to get the number. The phone kept morphing into different screens and multiple screen formations and displaying videos, games, movies, etc . . . but couldn’t access the phone part. Kept trying and trying and trying while walking all over the place trying to find my friend and parents. Asked some people to help me but they had no success either. At one point I… Read more »

I was on a plane with my boyfriend. I don’t know where we were headed but on our return flight, we fell asleep and awoke to the captain telling us we had to disembark. So we gathered our things and got off with the captain. As we got to our housing destination, he realized he didn’t have it. The captain was with us and said we could track it. So, we did and it showed it was traveling on the plane. The captain said they could retrieve it but it would take 3 days to get it back. So, asked… Read more »

I am sorry to post again, but I had another dream that was so vivid I must ask: I dreamt that it was Thanksgiving; my deceased mother was using my ex-husband’s bathroom and borrowing his underwear, thus hanging them on the doorknob. She left the door open, just like my ex always does when he’s doing his ‘business’. My dining room was packed with friends who seemingly ignored my mother using the bathroom with the door open. A man was there, helping me, fussing over me and loving me; he was maybe about the same age – but he made… Read more »

I just dreamed that after giving myself a bad haircut on accident, I was on my cellphone and my hair got caught in my phone, my hair smoking and cell phone melted then caught on fire. What, if anything, could this possibly mean? Thank you. (Thank God when I woke up, my hair was still the same and my phone still works! Whew!)

I have had two separate dreams that are very similar. In the first one I was a teenager again, I had a teacher come to my home to teach. My parents let him take me to the grocery store and on the way home I had this feeling like he liked me, and I liked it? When we got home I went up stairs and I heard my mom yell at him to get out and never come back. I went downstairs and he said to me “Look me up sometime” and I said back “I don’t even know your… Read more »

Shattered.. I was with my old childhood friend that I haven’t spoken to in many years. We were at a bar and met a guy. We left and went to another party with lots of people I didn’t know and felt a little uncomfortable. I took my brand new cellphone out, which I love dearly and watched it basically crumble in my hands, completely shattered. All I could do was watch as the pieces fell to the floor. The guy helped me pick up the pieces but I caught him trying to steal the memory card. I confronted him but… Read more »

In my dream, I was a device. The feeling tone was such that in my mind I could activate certain apps. The app that I specifically saw was the calculator app, and I recall wondering (given in real life I’m not very good at maths) that if I was now the device, could I now be better at calculations and complex equations? Also I received a messenger notification, I felt the specific messenger ‘ding’ in my being. Given recent events happening in our world, this dream was unnerving. However when I prayerfully analysed my dream, I thought it possible that… Read more »

In my dream I put my phone in a toaster intending to cook the germs off. I hit three minutes and went outside. Then came back and the house smelled terrible. I ran to the kitchen and found it destroyed and on fire. The toaster was actually set to 30 minutes. For some reason it being broken concerned me more than the fire. The phone was a gift and I ended up apologizing to the giver for “making them waste their money” Afterwards they said not to apologize. I asked if it would be better just to get a laptop… Read more »

In my dream, I found an old cell phone while I was out on a walk. I brought it home intending to find out who it belonged to and I got a strange text message asking me if I wanted to help out a movie character who was sick. I went to delete the message and a woman’s voice came through saying, “Alright; may the Lord be with you, ok?” After that, I heard a church organ playing in the background and she started creepily singing, “Don’t come to me, or I will kill you.” She then shouted “Don’t come… Read more »
