Mobile phones or things without any chance or success (2-6)
I believe the answer is:
'without any chance or success' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot judge whether this works.
'mobile phones or' is the wordplay.
'mobile' is an anagram indicator.
'phonesor' with letters rearranged gives 'NO-HOPERS'.
'things' is the link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Another definition for no-hopers that I've seen is " People expected to fail".)
