Who invented the very first telephone?

The invention of the telephone is credited to Alexander Graham Bell, however Thomas Edison made some improvements by including a carbon transmitter that he later developed.

The First Ever Phone Call?

On the 2nd of June 1875, Bell was trying to perfect a method for carrying more than two messages simultaneously using a single telegraph line, he heard the sound of a plucked spring which was along sixty feet of wire. In 1876, the first vocal communication was made by impulses transmitted through wires when Bell, whilst having a fire in his laboratory, called out to his personal assistant, “Watson, please come here, I want you.” Bell’s assistant Thomas Watson (1854-1934) was on a different floor of the building with the receiving apparatus/instrument when he heard Bell’s message.
