Best Answer

The origin of the cell phone comes from the first radios in the 1920's and from the use of police radios in the 1940's. The concept of the cell phone was developed in 1947 by Bell labs and it came from the mobile car phone. The first actual cell phone was made in 1973 by Martin Cooper who used the idea of the car phone and applied the technology to make a portable cell phone. In 1984 the public was able to buy the first cell phones.

How do you eavesdrop using a cellphone?

Well first of all it is not polite to eavesdrop cellphone or not. But with the overuse of the cellphone in the most public of places, it is impossible not to eavesdrop on the various conversations taking place all around you. Sometimes you hear someone speaking and you don't see the cellphone or earpiece so you assume they are talking to you. If you are taking about wiretapping into a cellphone, forget it, it is illegal!
