    Need basic flip phone for 70 yo father

    We use Boom Mobile MVNO on Verizon's network. He makes phone calls only, has no use for e-mail, data, texting, camera, etc. Apparently I've discovered that 3G phones are no longer being activated? So I'm having a heck of a time finding a phone for him that will work w/ Verizon AND is 4G. Ideally looking at less than $100, and about his only requirement is he likes it to have the little screen on the outside so he can see the time and who is calling. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Don't know if you have found a phone yet, but you might visit a cell phone store and check the used inventory. Tell them you need an unlocked 4G CDMA phone. Search Ebay for the same. Nice of you to help your dad. I'm also 70, and the self proclaimed "World's Oldest Jailbreaker" of my iPhone. Tech stuff is fun for me.
