Telephone World is a hobby website devoted to the mysterious device known as the Telephone. People have used "the phone" for more than 125 years, yet very few of us know what goes on behind the scenes when we make or receive a phone call. This website should help enlighten you on this useful yet mysterious device that is in most every home and business in the industrialized world.


This is a hobby website and it not owned by any telephone company.
