Because Thomas Edison thought it was better than saying 'Ahoy,' as Alexander Graham Bell, the 'inventor' of the telephone, suggested as a greeting:
But Real fact is :
when u lift the phone u say
do you know what is the real meaning of
it is the name of a girl
And do you know who is that girl?
she is the gf of GRAHAMBELL who invented
one can 4gt the name of grahambell
but not his gf....
THATS LOVE :-)
Alexander Graham Bell (March 3, 1847 – August 2, 1922) was an eminent scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone.
Bell's father, grandfather, and brother had all been associated with work on elocution and speech, and both his mother and wife were deaf, profoundly influencing Bell's life's work. His research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment with hearing devices which eventually culminated in Bell being awarded the first US patent for the telephone in 1876. In retrospect, Bell considered his most famous invention an intrusion on his real work as a scientist and refused to have a telephone in his study.
