The first commercial mobile telephone service begins in June 1946. A driver in St. Louis, Missouri uses a handset from under his car’s dashboard to place the world’s first mobile telephone call. A team from Bell Labs works for more than a decade to develop the service. By 1948, mobile telephone service is available in almost 100 cities and 30,000 calls are being made each week.
