 Alexander Graham Bell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Alexander Graham Bell (March 3 1847–August 2 1922) was a scientist, inventor, and founder of the Bell Telephone Company, known as the father of the telephone.
Reis' telephone was fairly crude and roused little interest in the scientific community, but his work appears to have been used by Bell when designing the telephone.
Of the people who have challenged Bell's patent and claimed to have invented the telephone, the most interesting case was that of Antonio Meucci, an Italian emigrant, who produced a mass of evidence to show that in 1849, while in Havana, Cuba, he experimented with the view of transmitting speech by the electric current.

 San Francisco's Chinese Telephone Co. - 1901
To many of the Chinese the telephone still holds, to a certain degree, its qualities of the supernatural, and the presence of a joss is not a luxury, but a prime necessity.
The Chinese telephone company was to put in girl operators when the exchange was refitted, and doubtless it will be done eventually.
But when the company found that girls would be unobtainable unless they were purchased outright, and that it would be necessary to keep a platoon of armed men to guard them, to say nothing of an official chaperon to look after the proprieties, the idea of girl operators was abandoned.

The telephone was originally introduced to the Indian government by The Oriental Telephone Company Ltd. and the Anglo-Indian Telephone Company; however, the Indian government denied their request in 1880 to build a telephone system.
