It is not known how many cell phones are sold annually worldwide, but it is safe to assume it is in the millions or more.

Do you mean 'When were the first cell phones sold?' If so, the answer is in the mid 1980s.

According to Gartner, for 2010, smartphones accounted for 297 million (19%) of the 1.6 billion mobile phones sold that year.

There are many places where unlocked cell phones are sold. Some places that sell these phones are Best Buy, Target, Walmart, NewEgg's website, and Overstock.

There are many places to purchase used cell phones. Refurbished phones are sold direct from Verizon Wireless, eBay sells many used phones, and craigslist has many used phone listings.

The first cell phones were not sold to the public, but were only used by the government. This was in 1974 and it wasn't until 1984 that cell phones were sold to the public.

I worked for a company in Anaheim CA that sold cell phones somewhere around 1990 ....and I remember my first week I sold about five 3 WATT mobile phones which included car kit and installation.... from $1,850 to $2,400. I know you could buy car phones wih installations for as low as about $1,000 at that time (but not from this company) --- In the many months I only sold cell phones to CEO's, sales people for Black and Decker, and one architect and a couple guys who owned construction companies....zero doctors, zero real estate agents, or anyone else. I used to get asked by police all the time why I had a pager and a cell phone. I think only 1% of people in the USA at that time had cell phones...around that time....the Motorola flip phone (which is huge compared to the cell phones today) came out and I think people were pre-ordering them for about $3,500 each.

Yes. GSM phones (phones sold by T-Mobile and AT&T) use triangulation.

The idea of cell phones dates from the 1920's and police radios, but the first cell was made by Bell labs in 1947. It wasn't until 1973 that Dr. Martin Cooper of Motorola made a cell that could be used. From 1973-1984 it was sold only for government work. In 1984 the first public cell phones were sold. The phones of that time were large, heavy, and copied land line phones. They were carried in a zippered bag with a battery taking up the entire bottom.

Last year an estimated 1.2 billion cell phones were sold, according to University of Southern Queensland data reported by the GSMA and TextGuard.com, of which handsets accounted for between 50 and 80 per cent. That equates to between 51,000 and 82,000 tonnes of chargers.

The number of cell phone cases that were sold last year were between one million and five million. Phone users have the tendencies of making their phones appearing new.

The invention of radio. In the 1930's radios were put in police cars and there was a suggestion of phones. In 1947 the first cell phone was made, but it didn't work very well. Motorola came up with the first working cell phone by Dr. Martin Cooper in 1974. The first cell phones were sold to the government and in 1984 were finally sold to consumers.

Cell phones had only been sold since 1984 so in 1992 they were large, didn't have Internet , were not "smart" and were just phones. Often calls were dropped because the cell towers were not everywhere and using the phone was expensive.

Actually the first idea of the cell phone dates back to the 1920's and police radios. In 1947 Bell labs made one of the first cell phones, but Dr. Martin Cooper of Motorola is given the credit for the first cell in 1974. It was very much like the phones we have today and was sold to the government. In wasn't until 1984 that cell phones were sold to the public.

Walmart retails a large range of phones. All the large brands of Android phones, Windows phones and iPhones are sold, both on and off contract, as well as unlocked phones.

You can compare the 2010 sales on cell phones to see which sold the most, or what were rated as the best. It's been 2 years ago but the information is always there if you check the cell phone providers information.
