Phone Addiction

My fiances daughter is on the phone virtually every moment she can. From the moment she wakes up to the moment she goes to bed. A few times when her friends have come over, I've actually had to tell them that if they wish to get a hold of her, they would have to go home and call her!

It's as if she needs to be in constant contact with her friends. The only difference is that she doesn't call her friends to see if they will be home. Instead, she calls, and if her friends aren't home, or are going somewhere.

Why would a girl be so addicted to a phone over actual friendships? Is there a psychological condition with these symptoms?
