In this study, we explore the phenomenon of mobile technostress: stress experienced by users of mobile information and communication technologies. We examine the impacts of mobile technostress on individuals’ job satisfaction. Based on the Transaction Based Model of stress and the existing literature on technostress, a conceptual model was proposed to understand this phenomenon. Two sources of mobile technostress have been identified: techno-overload and techno-insecurity. We hypothesize that techno-overload and techno-insecurity exert a negative impact on job satisfaction. The individual level mobile technostress inhibitors (i.e., self-efficacy) are identified as helping individuals reduce stress. We also hypothesize that self-efficacy has a positive impact on job satisfaction. Furthermore, the moderator effects of habit are also explored. We hypothesize that habit will negatively moderate the relationship between mobile technostress creators and job satisfaction, and positively moderate the relationship between mobile technostress inhibitors and job satisfaction. The methodological design as well as potential theoretical and practical implications has also been discussed
