    5G will kill the tube amp industry.

    Ha! Yeah! I'm with ya! I'm retired from the technology field. I could care less about centering my life around a 3 x 5 piece of technology. I have a Motorola unlocked cell phone, which I bought for $120. My cell phone plan costs me $10 a year. It's a pay as you go (they don't offer it any longer). Once you hit $100, your minutes are good for a year. If you add money each year ($10) all your minutes roll over for another year. I use it for the strange purpose of...Making Phone calls that last maybe 2 minutes at most. I have no data plan, just Wi-Fi. No guns for me, just Guitars, Keyboards and my wife. We actually talk when we go out to a restaurant.

    I didn't jump on 4G LTE until Microsoft Store was closing out Nokia 520's for $29. I won't be getting 5G until those phones are going just as cheap. I have Puretalk as a provider, it's an AT&T pay as you go plan. What I like is it costs $15/month for 2 lines and minimal minutes, but what you don't use, rolls over on the primary line forever. I think our primary cell number has like 4,000 rollover minutes on it, and I can move minutes to the secondary phone any time I want. There's also some data included per month, but I don't use it. I get like 2 texts a month, and I don't text anyone, even though all my old friends tell me to text them.

    There isn't even that much true 4G out there amongst the Towers, let alone 5G.
    Right now, it's just an advertising tactic.

    No, but it sure helps you to try to get there!
