Best Answer

The first phones had no dial. A person picked up the receiver and gave the operator the number he/she wanted. The operator finished the call for them. Phone lines were also party lines. This means you shared the line with others, so if you picked up the phone you could hear people talking. Phones were big, and did one thing, call people. A person couldn't just buy a phone, but had to rent one from the phone company. There were no answering machines, cell phones, or internet. Cell phones began to be sold to the public in 1984 and were big, expensive, and didn't work very well.

Cell phones can be improved because you can have a projector when someone calls you on your phone and you don't have to hold it all the time because your probably cooking,knitting,or sewing.

What was Emile Berliner's connection to the Bell Telephone Company?

Emile Berliner was a German-born American inventor who became interested in the then new audio technology of the telephone and phonograph, and invented an improved telephone transmitter (one of the first microphones) which was acquired by the Bell Telephone Company. Berliner subsequently moved to Boston in 1877 and worked for Bell Telephone until 1883, when he returned to Washington and established himself as a private researcher. Emile Berliner invented the microphone. How did he become famous though? I don't get it!
