Telephone call

A telephone call (also known as a phone call or simply a call) is a connection over a telephone network between the called party and the calling party. Telephone calls started in the late 19th century. As technology has improved, a majority of telephone calls are made over a cellular network through mobile phones or over the internet with Voice over IP.[1] Telephone calls are typically used for real-time conversation between two or more parties, especially when the parties cannot meet in person.
