  And there is an app that tells you where the wi-fi spots are, it's free!

    Thanks Lynn (and Terri) for pointing out this alternative.  If you have 
wifi, you can just buy the device you want, and use most of the useful apps.

    I think Allison is going to get the IPad and use it via wifi only so she 
doesn't have to get into a monthly plan just like Lynn.

      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?
