When was the first cell phone call made?

Answer:

1973

The first handheld cellular phone call was made on April 3, 1973, by Motorola engineer Martin Cooper from Sixth Avenue in New York while walking between 53rd and 54th streets. Cooper hoisted the 2 1/2-pound prototype to his ear and called a rival, Joel Engel of Bell Laboratories at AT&T, to declare that his Motorola team had devised a functional portable phone. “There was silence at the other end of the line,” Cooper recalled to Bloomberg in 2015. The clunky phone, almost as big as a shoe box, allowed a user to talk for 35 minutes and required 10 hours to recharge, according to Wired magazine.
