    My dad wants a smart phone, he is in his 60s and I am not sure if he is actually going to use the features. What is At*t policy about having an iphone for a few months and going back to a normal phone. I am thinking of getting him a iphone 4 when the price goes down when the new one comes out

    You have 30 days to exchange, and there will be a $35.00 restocking fee.

    Or you can get him an iPhone 3GS and see if he likes it or not?

    why not bring him to an apple/att/verizon store and let him play with one to see how he likes it?

    You can prolly pick up a 3GS for a song and go with no contract
    Pretty sure it would meet any need he has

    I know you said smartphones, but how about the iPad 2? Old folks seem to like it better since things are easier to read because the screen is big.

    If you buy from an Apple Store you have 14 days to return it with not restocking fee
