I'm old enough to remember what happened when the US Government broke up "Ma Bell." (Bell Telephone)
We ended up with several independent telephone companies - - some good, some not so good. Over the years, these companies have morphed into different entities, and some have been absorbed by bigger and better rivals. Just take a look at Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
Was the government-forced breakup of Bell a good thing, or a not-so-good thing? One clearly bad thing was the downturn of Bell Labs as a pre eminent R&D laboratory.
Just some thoughts of someone born i the 1920s

I'm in that third group. I have two SEs (64 and 128) And I intend to keep them until either they disintegrate or I can't get batteries.
Why? Verizon no longer keep the wire lines into my home working - - so I had to go wireless. I need iPhones that are phones primarily, and not the world's greatest cameras and pocket computers. (I've got those covered with an iPad pro and a desktop 27" iMac.)
My five female grandchildren are already complaining about the decision to stop selling the SE. Maybe Tim Cook has forgotten that 51% of the population consists of females.
