The telephone is more important. I can't keep track of my kids whereabouts with a camera.

Besides, now most phones have cameras, but I don't know of any cameras with a built-in phone.

Sure, I think the telephone is more important... communication is VERY important. Without the camera people could still paint pictures.... the telephone brings people together.

pictures and painting can bring people together and they can communicate. You don't need a voice to communicate. sometimes it is actions and it is actions that are more important than talk.

What gives me the feeling that if I had argued the opposite then you would have said the telephone?

I have to say the telephone...and while a picture is worth a thousand words, the telephone allows words to be instantly spoken across our planet. Can a piture be sent in an instant now? Yes! but, without words, it might be hard to really understand the picture. Often, we look as pictures and try to speculate on what the photographer was trying to capture. Without the "words" from the photographer, you might really never know what the picture is, what is means, what the phtographer wanted to share by taking it? AND please put it in context for the time. A photograph is an evolution of a painting. The telephone was an evolution of electric morse code devices. Both were evolutions yet both were revolutionary in reality. But, I have to side with the telephone.

Telephone, because think about how long we had to wait for snail mail just to contact someone one state over. Now we can pick up the phone and be like "hey, grandma died" or some serious thing like that.

the telephone is way better than the camera you can talk instnatly to friends/family and cameras some people use for dirty uses and you get the point..

The camera does have some very sentimental benefits, as well as providing evidence in court or blackmail (although photoshop may have essentially negated this use.) And were it not for cameras first we wouldn't have movies. But...

None of this supersedes the practical and sometimes life saving values of phones. Plus my phone has a camera, one which I use more than my actual camera, so...

To capture elements and moments of your life seem extravagant though it has been helpful in crime. But, telephones led to cellphones have created a different genre...! Though disastrous it has helped mankind...!

All the best with your schoolwork!

The telephone is a conveyance that transfers a voice across the world. It is very useful in the business world.

The camera makes a permanent record. It can give us history. It gives many of us our memories that we can look at.

A voice can be forgotten but a picture is precious.

Telephone this is a good way to communicate with people who are not near and who you don't see often. well phones now have cameras so pretty much they would be getting rid of cameras soon

The invention of the camera led to the television and to the computer, the invention of the telephone would have been stuck because mobile phones have cameras and technology leading from cameras in them.

well first of all the camera is in a phone thats what started making cameras popular and the television wass before the amera and computer and if you noticed the first phone had no camera and was very popular and the only technology in a phone that relates to the camera is the camera and the SD card yet the phone doesnt need a SD card and this is a cord phone not a cellphone

Side: Telephone chyea =)

I think the camera was the better invention because you take photos and keep those photos as precious memories.

Important for who: society? Then it will make sense. If you say which is more important to individuals, then it depends on the individuals themselves. There could be one person who would find the telephone more important to he/she can talk to his/her family of long distances.

However, there can be oner person who could find the camera more important because taking pictures is his/her life.
