At the age of 24 in the year 1871, Alexander relocated to Boston and started working on a device that would permit the telegraph communication of various messages set to different prevalence. Interested in his idea, Watson started assisting him in his passion. After sheer hard of 5 long years on 10th March 1876, Bell and Watson finally succeeded in their idea. Bell banged over a container of transferring fluid and screamed, “Mr. Watson, come here. I want you!” Watson was able to hear Bell’s voice clearly through the wires and thus, that was the first telephone call ever made.

Alexander formed his company called The Bell Telephone Company on 9th July 1877. For the next two decades, the Bell Company faced as many as 550+ court challenges and several among them even went to the Supreme Court, but none could succeed. After 10 years from the formation of his company, more than 150,000 people in the U.S. had installed telephones at their residence and workplace.
