A cell phone does not directly transmit sound. Instead it uses a microphone to convert what you are saying into electronic form. It then communicates with the cell station and sends it the electronic signals which represent your voice. The receiving person's cell phone then reassembles the electronic code representing voice into sound, using a speaker.
