First things first the iphone we have know was way different than back in the day. In the olden days the telephone was one big box connected to the wall in the middle of your house. If you wanted to call someone you would have to talk to a operator and ask them to call the person you wanted to communicate with, so your phone call would be open to everyone so if you wanted to talk privately you would have to talk face to face. Not just the telephones were different but the phone numbers were as well.The inventor that first in vented the first telephone , his name was Alexander Graham Bell. The first person to invent the first basic phone, his name is Antonio Graham. As you can see the smart phone we have now is a lot different compared to the one back in the day.
