Well.. depending on his current phone system, (att/tmob/whatnot vs
Verizon and sprint) one can pick up an unlocked new palm Centro from
retail channels for around $99-150 which would satisfy his need for a
palm replacement, and also makes a darn good phone as well.. if
purchased separately, no data plan is needed to offset the cost of the
phone to the provider. Palm works really well with Oracle.

The main aversion to a smartphone is paying for a data plan he has no

everything he needs but it seems to be reaching the end of its life.
