    DID YOU KNOW??? Inventor of the Cell Phone Did you know that we have Henry Sampson to thank for the invention of the cell phone? He is the first African Amer...ican to earn a Ph.D.in Nuclear Engineering in the United States. On July 6th, 1971, Henry T. Sampson invented the "gamma-electric cell", which pertains to Nuclear Reactor use. Mobile Communications took a big step forward in 1983 with the invention of the Cellular System regulating the portable telephones, which use radio waves to transmit and receive audio signals. Before this time, mobile telephone service in the United States, consisting mainly of car phones, was extremely limited because metropolitan areas had only one antenna for these purposes. He holds patents related to solid rocket motors and conversion of nuclear energy into electricity. He also pioneered a study of internal ballistics of solid rocket motors using high-speed photography. He was also a producer of documentary films on early black filmmakers and films.

    The OP posted something that misrepresented a brilliant man (magnificent in his own field) that I'm sure was meant to uplift and to inform, but unfortunately was not true. And what should you or anyone else learn from that? Not everything put before you in any form whatsoever should be taken at face value, before passing on information, verify. BELIEVING and HOPING are for the ignorant, be ignorant no more my friend. Religion is delusive and delusions are a form of mental illness. So if one finds it difficult not to invoke god or some biblical reference in a discussion or debate, then they are mentally ill.

    This isn't true:

    He may not have invented the cell phone, but he seems to have done some impressive things. He's done some great engineering and written books about the art of film. The link has more information.

    This is also pretty amazing:

    So, his inventions lead to the creations of the cell phone. Close enough for government work. :lol:
