    I just got my Note 5 a week ago and have noticed that when I have it plugged in and charging in the car and I place it on the Passenger seat it activates my air bag sensor as if someone was sitting in the seat. It turns the air bag on and the fasten seat belt light and chime come on. I haven't noticed it if it's not plugged in charging. I have a 2014 VW Jetta. Just curious if anyone else has had this issue. Once I remove the phone from the seat everything goes back to normal.

    Must be some of the extra code VW added in with their cheating scheme on their cars

    This is a VW issue.. I had the same thing happen and I asked the dealer.

    I'll have to check to see if my S4 does this. Likely a VW Thing.

    It's a electric digital mat sensor in the seat. It's pretty standard in today's world. Bring it in to the dealer and they will correct it, I work for vw

    Please stop the 'gate' thing.
    Watergate had nothing to do with defective hardware.

    Yup! have a 2015 Passat TDI. I noticed that when I put my Note 4 on the passenger seat the seat belt chime for the passenger goes off. I have only noticed a few times with my Note 5 though. I have a friend with a Passat TDI who says the same thing but she has an iPhone. So I think this may be a VW thing.
