Re: 5g and me
But using a cheapo, non-Apple generic charger could damage the battery or phone itself and void the warranty. This happened to my lady companion when she used a charger she purchased at the local 99 cent store to charge her Samsung smart phone instead of the lost charger that came with it.

Why is a charger that much, when you can get a good one for five dollars at Wal-Mart. I did, because it is one that the plugs fold in. I keep it in my purse, so I can charge my phone if I'm gone longer than expected, but it works fine. -----Original Message----- From: main@TechTalk.groups.io [mailto:main@TechTalk.groups.io] On Behalf Of Gerald Levy via groups.io Sent: Wednesday, October 14, 2020 3:00 PM To: main@TechTalk.groups.io Subject: Re: [TechTalk] 5g and me Start trembling. A charger will set you back $40. Plus another $40 for bluetoot earbuds, which are also not included, but you may need, anyway, because there is no headphone jack. Oh, and didI mention a case and screen protector, probably another $60 or so. And if you walk around with a white cane or guide dog harness in hand, a neck lanyard will come in handy, probably about $20. And don't forget sales tax. By the time you're finished, that $700 IPhone 12 Mini will wind up costing closer to $1000. But hey, Tim Cook has taken a page out of the P.T. Barnum playbook: There's a sucker born every minute.

Unless you buy into the media hype and want to fork over $700 or more for a 5G IPhone 12, which, shockingly, does not come with a charger and like previous models, does not have a physical home key. But, hey, it's your money. Gerald 10/14/2020 1:46 PM, Monte Single wrote: Hi List, What am I missing if I do not have a 5g phone? Well, yes I know about the lightning fast uploads and downloads. That is, whenever my carrier actually gets 5g!! Thanks, Monte
