In the future, where every device is connected (and they will be) Some may be ones you want to work but dont want to pay for the 5g service, so you connect them to your lan. Now, you can firewall those just fine, but you have no visibility into what it's doing on it's 5g connection you're not paying for. Most likely it will still be connected via that connection and open security holes into your lan, bypass servers you're blocking etc.
You can't when the modem the device has doesn't connect to anything you own. It connects to a cell tower.
most 5g marketing material talk about a future where your home is 5g, everything is 5g and there is no wifi etc. Obviously that's not fully possible everywhere, but it's not a stretch at all for companies to use 5g to circumvent the tracking issues they have with NAT and other user control devices. So while they may even still use your home network if you set it up to do it's primary activities, if they have 5g modems, it will also likely maintain a 5g connection to fall back on if it encounters a problem (you're firewalling some server it wants ) and to provide direct access to the device for remote management/access.
yeah you can... just do not use stock systems those devices come in. In most cases you can find nix systems for those cpu's. But i don't think you have right to complain if you are using those mobile devices.
