switching over to veriezing I was able to keep mine at the same price as long 
as I signed a two year contract.  I don't know what todays prices are.

    Thanks.

        Hello Jim and others interested in this thread:

         

        1, which apple phone is the best for us to get?



        Why that would be the latest version that is out now? The question 
seems to be should I hold off for the newest or latest and greatest model. When 
I bought my I Pad this past October I had no idea the newer model would be 
coming out this past March.  Do I regret buying the I Pad II; no, not for a 
minute. I never had any device so accessible an easy to use right out of the 
box. 

         

        2, is their one for OCR?



        I phones along with I Pads run apps short for applications. There is a 
basic set of apps that comes with each device; Email, contacts, calendar and 
camera to name a few that are task specific. Other apps help you get at the 
music and videos you download to your device.  

         

        There is another app that lets you access the apps store. This lets you 
choose more apps, over 500,000 at last count, books, and movies to rent $4.99 
or buy, and all kinds of music; a single cost 99 cents, and albums cost $7.99 
and up.  

         

        The price of apps can be free or anywhere from 99 cents an up. There 
are OCR apps but do not look for this one to be on the device when you buy. I 
know of one OCR app by Ai Squared that will let you take a picture of text and 
read the text. This app is made for folks like me who still have some useful 
sight left.

        3, what would be the monthly cost for the Apps and phone use?

         

        For the prices on apps see above and for the cost of staying connected 
I am over my head on this question. Hay guys with phones, what are you paying 
per month?
