The telephone and its modification, the mobile phone, have transformed the way we communicate with each other. Telephone for the first time allowed people to talk directly over a long-distance. Earlier, people used telegrams to send important messages to their friends and family members.

Moreover (cohesion), it is useful for all age groups. While (cohesion) youngsters use it for talking to their peer group, parents use it to keep in touch with their children. Businessmen use it to communicate with team members and customers of different age groups. (Different age groups)
