A telephone call or telephone conversation (or telcon[1][lower-alpha 1]), also known as a phone call or voice 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.[2] Telephone calls are typically used for real-time conversation between two or more parties, especially when the parties cannot meet in person.
