What were the famous first words spoken by Alexander Graham Bell over the telephone?
“Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you.”
Answer: On March 10, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell invented the first practical, working telephone. His first words on the telephone was to his assistant in the next room, “Mr. Watson, come here.
I want to see you.” There is some dispute about the actual words used, as Thomas Watson, in his own voice, remembered it as “Mr. Watson – Come here – I want you.” In any case, Watson heard Bell’s voice through the wire and thus, he received the first telephone call.
Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 – August 2, 1922) was a Scottish-born scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with patenting the first practical telephone.
