Ellipsis 7 - Is there any benefit to the montly fee phone line?

Is there any benefit to paying the monthly fee for having the phone line connected to my Ellipsis 7?  I had the phone line reconnected in hopes of getting updates that would allow me to use the Ellipsis 7 for airline and home security apps.  Seems the Ellipsis 7 uses an android version 4.4.2.  That's pretty old (released 2013) since android is now on version 8.  So it seems the most updated Verizon Ellipsis 7doesn't work for American, United, Delta Southwest airlines, or Ring.  But it does seem to work for Kindle, Waze, Petzi and YouTube, and some other things, but I hope I don't phone line for those!  Right??

The Ellipsis 7 is almost five years old and likely won't receive further updates.  The last update was 10/4/17 and was a security update.
