Charles E. Alden has a wiki entry here: en.wikipedia.org...

There are plenty of articles to be found about Mr. Alden and it does indeed appear that he invented a precursor of the modern cell phone. Another Newspaper Article... that article describes some details of the invention.

His technology only picked up regular phone calls going through nearby telephone wires. He didn't create the network cell system we have today with relay towers and satellites, but it was a wireless handheld device. Take a look at the link I posted: chroniclingamerica.loc.gov...

Tesla actually invented wireless communication in the 1800's

Wireless communication is the transfer of information over a distance without the use of electrical conductors or "wires". The distances involved may be short or long. When the context is clear, the term is often shortened to "wireless". Wireless communication is generally considered to be a branch of telecommunications. With his newly created Tesla coils, the inventor soon discovered that he could transmit and receive powerful radio signals when they were tuned to resonate at the same frequency. When a coil is tuned to a signal of a particular frequency, it literally magnifies the incoming electrical energy through resonant action. By early 1895, Tesla was ready to transmit a signal 50 miles to West Point, New York... But in that same year, disaster struck. A building fire consumed Tesla's lab, destroying his work. In England, a young Italian experimenter named Guglielmo Marconi had been hard at work building a device for wireless telegraphy. The young Marconi had taken out the first wireless telegraphy patent in England in 1896. His device had only a two-circuit system, which some said could not transmit "across a pond." Later Marconi set up long-distance demonstrations, using a Tesla oscillator to transmit the signals across the English Channel. Tesla filed his own basic radio patent applications in 1897. They were granted in 1900.
Marconi's first patent application in America, filed on November 10, 1900, was turned down. Marconi's revised applications over the next three years were repeatedly rejected because of the priority of Tesla and other inventors.

you stil think people especially in dense urban areas that had phone lines would carry one so they could send & receive calls, sorry im just thinking outloud
