These would be high-frequency sound waves

Mobile phones operate using ultra-high-frequency radio waves

They are two completely different kinds of energy, and propagated at different frequencies too. You would need very different sensors for each kind.
Ears (a dog's would do nicely) for the sound waves, and something like a radio antenna for the radio waves (which are the same kind of energy as
Since this is the case, your uncanny sensitivity to high-pitched sounds and the equally eldritch talent you share with the OP cannot possibly be
related. You are clearly a very special, multiply gifted, human prodigy.
I wonder how you know of your sensitivity to inaudibly high-pitched sounds. What led you to conclude that you have this sensitivity? Have you
discussed the matter with your physician?
Never mind; it's a side issue. It is your talent for predicting when the phone will ring, which the OP also claims to have, that is truly prodigious,
A person who could sense radio waves (such as mobile phone signals) would have to spend their whole life immersed in a sea of endless, chaotic radio
noise - a truly hellish experience, like living in a boiler factory. Of course, if you could tune your radio sense to perceive only a certain band of
frequencies (another miraculous feat because we cannot do this with any of our real senses), it would help reduce the noise a lot.
But even if your personal radio receiver was tuned to pick up only
mobile phone transmissions, you'd still be hearing dozens of transmissions
at the same time. You would never sleep.
I would just wake up 2 seconds before the phone went off (sometimes more, but then I could say that I really was expecting that
If that's so, then your brain must have tuned itself to the control channel used by your mobile service provider. That's the only possible
explanation. But how does it distinguish communications to your
phone from signals sent to all the other phones in the cell? Does your brain
unconsciously record your SID as well? How cell phones work
But when I'm asleep I still... wake up seconds before my phone goes off... The same tone from years ago...
Have you changed locations and service providers since then? If you have, then your brain is even more prodigious than we thought, because it has
learned to tune to the different service channel frequencies used by different providers over the years, and distinguish the different SIDS!
I don't really consider it to be ESP though - just those phones do kick out some energy when connecting to the network.
Oh, it's ESP, all right - humans don't have a radio sense, so the ability to sense radio waves is extrasensory by definition.
Indeed, you and the OP are true marvels - it would be unkind but not at all inaccurate to call you freaks of nature. You're already doing so much of
what a mobile phone does that with a little practice, you may be able to dispense with the instrument altogether.
All you need to do, really, is learn how to transmit.
And configure a suitable bodily orifice to accommodate the SIM card.
