    cute How did "Hello" came to be used on Telephones.

    The first word used to answer the phone
    was the nautical greeting 'ahoy' because
    the first regular phone system was in the
    maritime state of Conecticut. Alaxzender
    Grahm bell, the inventer, answered with
    the Gaelic 'hoy'. But it was Thomas Edision's
    greeting of ' hello' an exclamation of surprise
    dating back to the Middle Ages., that caught on,
    so we answer the telephone with' Hello'?
    Another theory is that after inventing the
    telephone, he rang his girl friend whose name
    was 'Hello' , thus the first word said by him
    on telephone became greeting. Before ' Hello'
    became popular, telephone operators started
    conversations, " Are you there."?
