That is all well and good for you, and I don't think anyone is trying to be mean here. But a struggling grandpa who is "one of the most non-tech savvy people" you will meet probably should not have an Android as his first smartphone. I own the Charge and I love it. I personally would not buy an iphone or any i-device for reasons of principle. But you can not deny that right out of the box they are much easier to use than droids or blackberries especially for novices who often times need the features and capabilities of smart phones spoon fed to them. Any worthwhile salesperson should have realized that from the beginning, especially when it sounds like he was swaying back and forth between the iphone and the Charge.
