I shouldn't be laughing at bf, but I can't help myself. He's not a Luddite, but he's been staunchly refusing to give up his non-smart phone. Even worse, when I first met him, he didn't even text. He just started that a few months ago. About that same time, it became obvious his mother would need to replace her phone soon. His sisters are pushing to get her an iPhone. It's a lot more phone than she needs, but with the native accessibility features, it actually wouldn't be a bad choice. I pointed out that if she did get an iPhone it would probably be a good idea for him to be familiar with them, as he's the one she goes to for tech support.
Fast forward to last week. I finally got the broken/stolen phones of mine fixed/replaced/upgraded. I'd also been providing a phone for my bonus child, but her foster mother got her a different phone and gave me back the one I'd bought. So now I have an extra iPhone. I gave it to bf to play with for a few days before I cancel that line. I asked him tonight if he was ready to give it back and he gave me this "hopeful six year old" look and asked if he could keep it. I couldn't help but laugh. So much for all that time he spent insisting smart phones were stupid. Five days and he's hooked.
