47 years later, making a phone call seems more important than ever
April 3, 2020

While we may not be able to see our friends and family in person, we're still reminded of how important it is to communicate and stay connected. Whether it be through a group video call to a virtual happy hour, these days we're relying even more on our smartphones to keep us connected with loved ones. 

Mobile phones have decidedly evolved from verbal communication tools to multipurpose devices, but now more than ever it seems like a time to use phones as they we're originally invented - talking to someone. In fact, on this day in 1973, the first publicized handheld mobile phone call was made on a Motorola dynaTAC cell phone. It marked a pivotal point in time for society as we no longer had to sit by a landline or wait for a page to ensure we didn´t miss a call. It meant we could communicate with anyone at any time and from anywhere.

A phone call has always been an important channel for us to keep in touch with loved ones from afar, and in a climate like today´s, were reminded of just how meaningful a phone call can be. Today, we encourage you to make a call to a friend, a family member, a loved one, or maybe someone you´ve lost touch with. Join us in celebrating the power of a phone call.  #stayconnected #makeacall
