What would Alexander Graham Bell think?

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, I wonder if he had any idea how it would be used 134 years later.
When I was a kid, my mom and older siblings talked about sharing telephone services with our neighbors on a party line in the late 1960s.  If we wanted to make a call, we had to check to see if any of the neighbors were on the line and had to wait until they finished their conversation before we could make our calls.
Today, we carry our phones with us wherever we go, send text messages, play on the Internet, listen to music or watch videos, take pictures and even play games with our phones.
Did AGB envision all of these possibilities when he tinkered with the original telephone?  What a great invention!
