My parents are the one who are not on social media and don't like to come. The phones they carry are basic phones, they don't want to use smart phones. may be they find it tough or they just want to use phones only for making and receiving calls. what is your say?

isnt that natural? when u grow old...technology will come up with new things, which probably you wont like rather you wont be comfortable

yes but I want them to use one atleast with one good camera and chat feature. so that they can give me a msg when I am not in a condition of pickup the phone

@spaceseed Hmm...in that case you need to convince them the advantages of smartphone, I know there are so many of them, who initially was hesitant but eventually went on to love the smartphone :)

@spaceseed I understand your point and I agree with you, even I want my parents to use smart phone so that I can do video chat and can share the pictures and all regularly. I think they don't find it easy and don't even want to try. Every one like to live the way he has lived for long time. But there are many elders who have started to use these facilities.

Smart phones are our need now a days..even I cannot think my life without smart phones. We should teach our elders how to use Mobile smart phones.

I think as one ages, time to do what one wants becomes quite valuable, and learning something new that is not a necessity is not how one wants to spend time. I have had my car for 3 years, and I still do not want to spend the time learning how to use the navigation system. I have other things I would rather do.

Please give my regards to your parents. They're wise people. I do nearly the same. But I only make calls. I don't even receive any.

actually they are sitting 400 km away.. so i remain slightly worried about them. if they have cam or at chat i can msg them. making calls is not always posible from my work. let me share one instance. my father's income tax return paper filing became late just because his phone wasnt smart, and i had to send copy of document by mail

I've just written about this. I don't have a mobile and the one my husband has is pretty basic. At least I think it is.
