Also, according to Isbell, “[i]n 1919 the American Bell Telephone Compnay began national service for user controlled rotary dial phones” (Isbell, n.d.).

We can charge our phones through our laptops and desktop computers (as well as send pictures to our laptops and desktop computers from our phones) using USB. Other devices we can use USB with are scanners, MP3 players, flash drives, an external mouse (that’s a mouse without the USB cord and uses the USB dongle instead), and printers.
