    Telephone was Invented by Alexander Graham Bell. Alexander Graham bell (3 March 1847 – 2 August 1922) was a scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone. Bell and Elisha Gray had both filed patent applications for the telephone on 14 february 1876.   The first words spoken over the telephone were by Alex on 10 march 1876. They were “Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you”. He formed the telephone company in 1877.

    “Ahoy” was the original telephone greeting suggested by the Alexander Graham Bell. But was later superseded by Thomas Edison, who suggested ‘hello’ instead.
