Apparently, a few billion dollars doesn't buy what it used to.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, whose net worth is estimated at $2.7 billion, was caught on camera talking on an old school flip phone during Saturday's Notre Dame-Arizona State game at Cowboys Stadium.

Sure, Jones is 70 years old, but he could certainly afford to pay someone to teach him how to use a smart phone. Maybe he and Andrew Luck could get a group rate.
As one might have guessed, the reaction on Twitter to Jones' ancient phone was quite comical:
Jerry Jones, who is made of money, still uses a flip phone. That's pretty sad.

Why does Jerry Jones have a flip phone? All that money and you can't pay someone to teach you how to work an iPhone?

Jones might either want to install tinted windows in his suite or be more careful about what he does during games because he's been caught in some unfortunate situations.
