The Inventor of the Telephone was Alexander Graham Bell

Alexander Graham Bell was an influential scientist, engineer and inventor. He was born on March 3, 1847 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He died on August 2, 1922 at the age of 75.
On February 14, 1876, Bell and an American electrical engineer named Elisha Gray both filed patents with the U.S. Patent Office covering the transmission of sounds telegraphically. A few days later Alexander succeeded.
Bell’s first words with the working telephone were spoken to his assistant Watson and were along the lines of “Mr Watson, come here. I want to see you.”
Bell improved on the design and by 1886 more than 150000 people owned telephones in the United States.

The Purpose of the Telephone

The purpose of the telephone is to audibly communicate with other people who are far away instantly and efficiently. Before the telephone, long distance communication was done with telegraph machines which were less efficient and took longer to get messages across since only dots and dashes could be communicated
