OMG I GET THIS!
However, it differs slightly from the OP. I only get it when my phone IS in the pocket next to the thigh. I always reach down, grab my phone "no
message" and am like WTF!
Edit to add my theory:
I think that from the constant vibrating over the years that the thigh muscle kind of moulds to the pattern of a vibration. So, at points, the muscle
does the action on its own and recreates the vibrating feeling on a specific trigger. For me, it is the trigger of the notion of having the phone in
my pocket so the leg feels that the object is there and anticipates the feeling.
