On March 7, 1876 Alexander Graham Bell was granted patent number 174,465 for his "Telegraphy" design. Three days later he successfully transmitted these famous words: "Mr Watson—Come here—I want to see you" to his assistant, Thomas Watson. The telephone has gone through many changes in the 137 years since the granting of the patent, and today it is a virtual library in your pocket.
