U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is changing his private cell-hone number after 2016 GOP presidential rival Donald Trump shared it during a speech in Bluffton on Tuesday, his campaign said.

Trump read a board with Graham’s number in response to the Seneca Republican calling him a “jackass” in interviews.

In addition to changing his number, Graham also plans to ditch his flip phone for a smart phone.

“Probably getting a new phone. iPhone or Android?” he tweeted on his campaign account.

This is a big step for the tech-averse senator.

Graham said in March that he has never sent an email during a discussion about Hillary Clinton using a private email server while she was secretary of state.

"I don't email," Graham said on “Meet the Press.” "You can have every email I've ever sent. I've never sent one."
