not to mention that he probably PAYS for someone to mess with all of that anyway - who needs a smart phone when you can have an assistant that can do the same things plus some

Being old is one thing. Being lazy as ass and refuse to adapt to 21st century technology is completely another. This man is a biliionaire. That means that he is bright enough to have loads of money. That means that he CAN think. And if he chose to continue using his brick of a cellphone instead of adapting and actually LEARNING (not that its that difficult to use a touch-screen proper phone. Esp iPhone) - that means he's just lazy. Seriously people. Just because you're used to something, doesn't mean that you should stick to it, when you have the possibility of getting something better instead. Learning how to use techonological products in our time is easy. It just requires a little patience. Oh and you know - using your brain.

Not everyone needs the latest and greatest cell phone. Besides, since he's so rich, he can let his people handle all of the other technical stuff for him.

So what he won't upgrade. He probably doesn't even need it. The I ly thing he needs his phone to do is make calls. Any staff he has can take vatebof his email and all the other stuff. But like I said he probably doesn't even need a cell. He's a billionaire so he's been filthy rich before cell phones. People got along for mellenium before towers so I'm sure he doesn't need it. And if he did he could always use his staffs. Pol who call him dumb or critisize for any reason should think that at that level of rich. Necessity changes. And if it's a gsm phone(99% sure it is) then he won't ever have to upgrade because LTE is compatible with it.

It's like that Bill Gates said in the episode of Simpsons, "I don't get rich by writing a lot of cheaques"

All the power to this guy. He probably has 50 assistants with smartphones that do the work for him so he doesn't have to.
