    Hope we get to keep the old charging cord and fast charge brick, while receiving new ones in the box also...

    Because Samsung has already established an equal trade program, Starting as early as next week.
    Re-read what I replied too. The poster was looking for a like for like yesterday... Samsung hasn't even gotten the new replacement batches out yet. So yes it's ridiculous to expect a like for like on the same day as the recall announcements. New phones need to be produced... Any phone currently laying around in stores are all recalls
    When new batch of phones arrive, everyone will get a like for like if they choose

    What happens if you just keep your original? It's still got a 1 year warranty?

    I am not having any heat issues and have put a lot of time into customizing my Note 7

    Plus 1. I'm not having issues or concerns at all. I'm using two different third party wireless chargers, a third party cable w a third party cigarette adapter, a third party cable w a third party wall brick and micro to C adapter and a couple of original samsung chargers as well. The phone hasn't gotten "too hot" in any scenario. Which begs the question... What temp IS considered too hot?

    Verizon has had the opportunity to say that. They haven't.

    I think we are getting hung up on people's language. The idea of trading down is what I am saying is ridiculous. They are not getting my Note 7 in coral blue till they produce another in my hands.

    I agree, my Note 7 isn't going to be turned in until it is a simple swap one for one. I'm not experiencing any issues and really don't even want to let this one go. I will swap it out for safety sake, but only for a new Note 7. I've had every Note since the Note 2 and there is a reason for that. I can't see myself ever using a phone without an s pen. It's the reason I get the Note, without it you just have a large screen phone.

    did i miss it, did Verizon say the only choice was to trade down. i thought that was one of your options if you are soured on the note 7 is to trade it in now for a different phone. they are not able to let you trade it in on an equal phone because an equal phone is not available yet.

    Verizon is always the last ones to tell us what they going to do. The lack of communication should be no surprise here. They will do what Samsung instructs them to do

    The $25 gift card/bill credit is for that. More them likely Samsung is only going to be interested in getting the phone back. But who knows how Samsung is going to ship the replacements out, they could just ship the phone only, doubt it though.

    They don't know yet. The VZW phone associate that I spoke made it sound like they are doing us some sort of big favor by offering us the ridiculous options that they are currently offering.

    Well give it a few days. It takes some time for all the info to get through the organizations. I wouldn't take as gospel anything a rep tells you today honestly ..

    I took mine into the store, and they waived the restock fee and let me exchange with no problems.

    Verizon only knows what we all do thats been posted. Even though I recall reading somewhere Samsung said starting next week people would be able to exchange their phones, Verizon doesnt seem to know anything about it. LOL

    We need the battery info. But of course they didn't track that during mfg. So either you have a hot potato or you don't. Mine seems to be just fine. No heat issues while charging. Why bother replacing if it isn't causing any issues? Also I have dropped mine several times. It's in the otterbox symmetry case. No cracked glass. Something tells me they may have run short on parts and threw in this other crap battery that doesn't fit well. Just a guess but that could cause glass to crack when dropped if it puts too much pressure on it. They gonna have to give me something good if they want this phone back!

    Samsung issued a recall for all of them. You can keep it at your own risk. You can exchange it for another Note 7 when it is back in stock. We all just need to wait for that to happen. It will take time...

    Just called 800-Samsung as instructed by Samsung announcement of the recall to "arrange for a mail exchange". The automated menu finally asked for the name of my Carrier, I pressed 1 for Verizon. I was connected to Verizon. The lady who answered said since I recently purchased the phones ( I have two to exchange) I need to return them for a refund. She did not offer to replace them. I explained that my wife had an upgrade and her old phone was returned to Verizon which would leave her without a phone. AND I purchased the phones because of the BOGO and am waiting for the $672 Visa card. I would lose that if I returned the phones. She said to contact Samsung. I mentioned that I called Samsung and got connected to her. She offered to call Samsung for me and speak to the rep. Minutes later she returned to the line and just handed me off to the Samsung rep who asked how she could help. I told her my story and she said call back next week as the exchange program will start next week. She did not know when next week to call.

    So I will call Samsung next week.

    This is just my guess but I would think the replacement will be just a Note 7 in a box with instructions nothing more.

    It's also not their fault that you dropped your phone and cracked the screen.
    Phones are exchanged regardless of damage.

    My only thing is that it's not my fault the phone is recalled, I could live with the cracked screen til asuron has the new note 7 in stock. We shall see
    Don't worry about the screen. This is a recall, you lucked out.

    i called and talked to samsung..basically we have to walk our sorry asses into verizon and tell them we want to proceed with the replacement device exchange. new phones are going to be distributed based on when you pre-ordered. so if you pre ordered first week of august youll get your phone as early as next week.

    there are a couple details that havent been answered. how many note 7's in the US have exploded...0 i believe. the guy at samsung was like "you shouldnt leave your phone plugged in all night just charge it and take it off the charger" i told him i charge my phone every night and it sits there for hours even after its charged. he basically said oh your phone is okay then.

    lol
    Actually it hasn't been zero in the US.

    i bought a unlocked note 7 from ebay to use with straight talk, i'm sure if i go to verizon store to exchange it the probably wont do it since i'm not their customer
    Contact your eBay seller and Samsung.
