So you don't want to be able to connect your phone to your computer and 
be able to manage texts, notifications, calls and what ever else from 
the computer then?

Course, that really only works for Android, but you don't have an iPhone, because you'd have to give Apple your existing email address and phone number. Also for the Android thing I think there actually a way to do that with Linux but it's not the your phone companion thing naturally. Hmm, not sure if it's possible to do much on Android without an account. At least if it's based on the Google software much at all it'll have the notification to complete setup if you skip setup.

  Thinking about it, I suppose it should be possible to sync with the phone without knowing what its number is, but meh, I have it set in my account anyway because 2 factor authentication which I turn on everywhere that has it except at this point Amazon.

Btw, Windows 11 really is sluggish on what hardware I've tried it on. It will probably eventually force itself onto my new desktop build, then we shall see how it runs on something that can let it stretch its legs. Windows 10 by and large is cat quick and runs pretty well on even midranged hardware. But I did join this list to have Linux questions hopefully addressed. The last question I asked didn't get any answers, boo!
