As you all know that phone you’re currently using was not even available long time ago.
Telephone is a device that is continuously getting update in structure and functions right from the time it was invented.


How much do you really know about that phone? From being an ” improvement in telegraphy ” to the sophisticated business tool it is today, the evolution of the telephone is fascinating, and sometimes even funny.

Do you know that the greeting “hello” we uses to attend any  phone call was not the first one always.
“Ahoy” was the original telephone greeting.

Alexander Graham Bell suggested ‘ahoy’ (as used in ships), but was later superseded by Thomas Edison, who suggested ‘hello’ instead.


The very first phone call was: “Watson come here, I want you!”

It was made on March 10, 1876 in Boston, Massachusetts, between Alexander Graham Bell and his assistant Thomas A. Watson

From 1876 till now we have noticed a lot of changes in telephonic devices.
From those land lines to touch screen mobile phones.


Telephone after becoming portable to use its damage rate is also increased all of a sudden.
Do you know –
According to a recent survey, 47 per cent of all water – damaged mobile phones in the world have been dropped in the toilet bowl.
Now you do know that where you should not be using it.
