The telephone was originally developed for business use and personal use and home use came later. Surveys have revealed that an average employee working in a business organization spends approximately 45 minutes a day on the telephone. This amply demonstrates the big difference that telephone can make to an individual employee’s productivity.
Because a telephone conversation is a direct form of oral communication between two individuals, agreements can be easily and quickly reached than through impersonal exchange of letters, memos, or email.
Most businesses and homes have started buying telephones, and currently the telephone is the most often used technology for business as well as personal communication. Effective business use of the phone requires a fair understanding of the telephone system as a communication tool.

Another difficulty, with telephone is due to the different time zones across many countries around the world making overseas calls not feasible.
It may also be said that telephone calls are at times inconvenient for the receivers, who are probably busy doing something important when their phones ring.

Speaker phones are notorious for poor fidelity and you must be extra careful when using them. Whether you are Pl acing a call or receiving one, use your voice distinctly for enhance rapport between you and the other person.
A business phone call deserves your full attention. Courses in telephone conversations and etiquette were common in the 1960s and ’70s, but subsequently lost importance as telephone usage became far too commonplace.
Virtually every home and business has one or even multiple number of phones. Man has become abjectly dependent on phone services that now you find increasing number of people having cell phones as also car phones.
