You can call, text, or video chat anyone from your mobile device, but imagine a world without global unified communications. We would live in a stagnant world if businesses didn’t have the ability to pick up the phone and hold a conference call. Today, IP communications allows them to stay connected digitally with their employees, partners and customers.
We celebrate National Telephone Day on April 25th to commemorates the day in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell introduced the first version of a telephone. Who would have thought that day in history would change the world forever?
Since 1876, the telephone has gone through quite the evolution. Many of us can still remember when phones were plugged into a wall and had a cord. There used to be a phone in every room. Not to mention the lack of privacy. Anyone who picked up another phone in the house was able to listen in.
National Telephone Day Activities:
1. Call Someone
Go ahead. Shock your friends with an actual phone call on National Telephone Day. They’ll likely think you have something very serious to say.
2. Get Nostalgic
Ask your grandparents about the energy needed to “dial” a phone — and why they dreaded numbers with lots of zeroes.
