The Mormons moved west in search of a new home, not a new phone. Phones weren't even invented yet (this was in the 1840's). The Mormons had been persecuted and kicked out of Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois, so they went further west into what was then Mexico in search of a place where they could live in peace.

The Mormons moved west from New York to Ohio to Missouri to Illinois and finally to Utah (which was then part of Mexico) in search of a place where they could practice their religion in peace.Throughout the United States, the Mormons faced severe persecution for their religious practices and political beliefs.

Nobody. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded in the US - so the first Mormons were already in the US! :) If you are speaking of the first Mormons to move from another country to the US, rather than the first Mormons ever in the US, the answer is still nobody. The first Mormons to move from another country to the US came from Canada, and were not 'brought' by any specific person, only encouraged to move so that they could be nearer to the main body of the church.
