The current research aimed to explore the relationship between Cell phone Addiction and Interpersonal Skills among Pakistani Young Adults in a quantitative correlation research survey design. A purposive convenient sampling technique was used to approach N= 251 young adults (Males n=102& Female n=149) age ranged between 18-35 years old, from different government and private institutes and universities of Karachi. It was hypothesized that there will be a negative relationship between Cell phone Addiction and Interpersonal skills. The findings revealed a significant weak positive relationship exists between cell phone addiction and interpersonal skills, (r=.18) and productive usage of cell phone (r= .11). The value of Cronbach’s Alpha for Cellphone addiction is 0.79 and Interpersonal skills are 0.76, which lies in good range. The value of skewness and kurtosis shows that data is normally distributed. The significant value of interpersonal skill (p= .73) and cell phone addiction is (p = .19). Hence the roles of cell phone addiction levels were evaluated in link of interpersonal skills. The study is seen to have multiple implications, particularly in the field of education, counseling, training and mentoring of adults.
