Did You Know Alexander Graham Bell Used Ahoy Instead Of Hello – Simple Telecomms Ltd

Alexander Graham Bell Used Ahoy To Say Hello

Posted by Simple Telecomms on

“Ahoy” was the original telephone greeting.
Alexander Graham Bell suggested ‘ahoy’ (as used in ships), but was later superseded by Thomas Edison, who suggested ‘hello’ instead.

Personally we think Ahoy would be a much more interesting way to answer the phone and we may well live dangerously and give it a try!
