Do you remember the times when you would go home after school and have long conversations with your friends over the phone? You would talk and talk for hours, and you would play with the cord or wire? Or how about when you would unintentionally listen to other people’s conversation when you accidentally picked up the receiver not knowing that someone was using it? Or the times when you would have three-way conversation with your BFF’s? Before there were cellphones and smartphones people used landline telephones to communicate with each other.
These landline telephones use cable wires to transmit messages as to radio waves for mobile devices. Through time the look of the telephone has evolved from a rotary dial to a dual-tone multi-frequency or DTMF, from curly wires and cords to wireless and corless landline telephones. Additionally there are also novelty designs of telephone landlines that were made available, some of these were a hamburger, a huge red lips or other cartoon and comic characters. Even though there are wireless and mobile phones in the market most businesses and households still use telephone landlines.
