The Bell Symbol History

The Evolution

The Bell mark and the Bell Symbol, originally linked to Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, have existed for over 100 years in the marketplace. They were first used in commerce in 1889.

The Regional Bell Operating Companies are committed to the good faith and reliability that the Bell Symbol signifies. Bell South and NYNEX have produced examples of how the Bell Symbol has reflected the importance of the Bell quality and service for over 100 years.

For over 100 years, the Bell Symbol and the names Southern Bell and South Central Bell have stood for uncompromised quality and excellence in the telecommunications industry.

BellSouth, as heir to the Bell Symbol and Bell trademarks, is continuing this tradition. So no matter what BellSouth product or service you're using, from wireless telemetry to cable television, or video conferencing to telemedicine, you can be assured you're getting the same Bell quality that people have been depending on since 1889.
