 Thanks Eric,As I mentioned, I already have an old Sony phone with a 256 GB micro SD card and Bluetooth that won't read a sim card anymore. I have about 25k songs on the card and can stream music via Wi-Fi. That is what I am using currently. That works for me, and I'm replacing the battery in the iPod just so I can use it again (not that I will ever need to). I also have a 25,000 mwh power bank made by Outxe that can charge wirelessly or by usb and can recharge by a solar panel on the back It is big and heavy, but I like it a lot.
Corey, I probably won't try and hack into my iPod, but I find it fascinating what people are doing with them.

 Hi Matt,

Would an aux to Bluetooth adapter work with your iPod so that you can use
your wireless earbuds?  Anker makes one with a 12-hour battery life for $33
on Amazon Prime, for example.

Anker also makes a portable USB charger battery (10,000 mWh) for $25
(Amazon Prime).

I'm not trying to push Anker, it just showed up in my Amazon search at a
good rating/price.

Pretty low tech workaround, but might breathe new life into your existing
iPod set-up for $58.  Not perfect, of course, and it keeps you in the Apple
ecosystem which you are trying to exit.

Would a second used phone (not active) similar to your current phone be
allowed on the factory floor?  I imagine this might be a hard sell because
it's a phone (active or not).  But that might also be cost-effective and
you could plug your existing SIM card into it.
