Chapter 1 The Cell Phone THE CELL PHONE IS INVENTED The telephone is the ancestor of the cell phone, so it is advisable to first learn something about the history of the telephone. The telephone was invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell. In 1877, President Rutherford B. Hayes had a telephone installed in the White House. By 1878, there was a commercial telephone exchange in New Haven, Connecticut with 21 subscribers and 8 landlines [1].

People could then make and receive calls with the limited number of people who had a telephone. The telephone then grew in popularity as millions of people worldwide became subscribers. One serious complaint about the telephone was that one had to be within earshot of the bell ringer to hear and answer a call.

Some cell phones can also connect to Bluetooth devices or wireless networks. If the security features are not enabled on the cell phone, then it may be possible to connect to the phone and alter, delete, or add digital evidence to the phone. It is very important that the digital evidence be preserved from the time of seizure until it is presented as evidence in court. If evidence is suspected of being tampered with, it could be ruled as inadmissible in court. Therefore, it is important for CCEs to preserve digital evidence by using a Faraday bag and noting its usage on the chain of evidence form.
