    iPhone 7 plus? Honestly I don't think the iPhone will ever get ahead of Samsung as far as phone technology goes, Apple seems to always be about 2 years behind nowadays...that's not to say the 7 plus will be a BAD phone, it just imo wont be AS good as the Note 7 or even the S7E
    I would agree. iPhone is played out I feel until next year and think their 10th anniversary model will be good. The problem is if you have been part of the Android ecosystem for a while the transition is not easy. Not like signing in with a gmail address and boom everything is there. I also loathe iTunes, it is possibly the most cumbersome piece of crap that you are forced to use. I have been with Android too long to consider this transition. I find iPhone boring and so dumbed down. Not to say occasionally their hardware is nice, but I laugh to see the same folks complaining about the price of their note 7 and yet they buy a iPhone +, a total overpriced device. The bad problem for the consumer was the timing of the Note 7 issues, not much out now that is like wow I must have that and not sure how quickly any of the new releases will be out.

    Yeah, agree. I was an iPhone user that played around with Android devices up until this year. My issue was imessage, I had to get over that hump, as iMessage blows away regular texting. I finally just decided to use Facebook messenger, and that's been a decent compromise. Anyway, yeah, iPhone has become very boring, I feel like they have just run out of ideas with what to do with that OS.

    For what its worth.....

    I ordered my S7 Edge loaner yesterday and now when I look on T-mo at my original order of my Note 7 they have put a "z" next to it.

    Never seen that before. The rep on the phone also told me that putting in for a loaner also puts me in the system for when the updated Notes come out.

    Do you think they are going in order of people who are getting loaners will get the new notes first?

    What really sucks about this whole situation is the fact that there is a chance we may not see the Note 7 again - no one really knows at this point. This was the first phone for me that checked off all of the boxes of things I wanted in a smartphone. I have had tons of devices in the past, and there was always something missing that left me wanting more, which is probably the reason why I tried so many different devices. But the Note 7 was the one that didn't have me wanting more and I was completely satisfied. I'm hoping we have some sort of direction soon. I emailed the CPSC on Monday and got a typical canned email response. Makes you wonder why T-Mobile is pushing everyone to another device. DId anyone get the text from T-Mobile yesterday about turning in their Note 7?

    I also got tired of receiving text messages from T-Mobile, so apparently from a lot of T-Mobile reps in the Note 7 Recall department you can get a free loaner phone. And then when the new batch of Note 7's comes out we can trade them in. They will leave a note on the account saying you don't have to pay any fee for the new Note. Also take advantage of this offer, I received the S7 Edge and then signed up for the promotion to receive a free Gear VR. So its a win win

    Note 7 Recall Department: 844 275 9309 (T-Mobile)
    So your s7e was new? I ordered one and wasn't sure if I could get this promotion since I got the Fitbit from the n7

    My S7 is scheduled for delivery today. Guess I'll do the transfer after work and power down my Note 7.

    To me I think this is the biggest story of them all so far.

    Millions of people per day use the NY and NJ transit system. The people who work for the transit will now be on the lookout for these phones and who knows what happens now.

    I got my loaner Edge tonight. I def don't like it as much as the Note. The settings/pull down menus are really ugly. I've also heard others say it's snappier than the Note 7. I don't find that true. Already having accidental Palm presses too. Plus it's gaudy silver. I need my stealth black Note back soon.
    Received mine as well. Spent several hours getting everything setup so that its ready when needed and all I need to do is swap my SIM.

    Until my trip and after my trip, I'll use the Note 7 and hope replacements arrive. If that arbitrary 9/30 date doesn't change, I guess I'll turn the Note in and just have no phone payment for however long it takes for replacement to arrive.

    Samsung pay finally got my $20 gift card reissued. Only took them 15 days.

    I also went ahead and submitted the promotion on the S7 Edge since there's no telling how long I'll have the phone.

    I am confused as well. I called T mobile about returning the Note 7 since now there is no clear date as to when the new version will be available. I asked if I could get an S7 edge as a loaner and was told it might take a week. So then I asked if I should go to a T-MOBILE store and see if they have the edge. I was then told I could, but that the stores only do permanent replacements! I told the rep I only wanted a temp phone! So I agreed to wait a week for an edge phone. I asked if I had to return the note 7 with box/accessories and was told phone only. A few hours later I get an eip and it seems I still have to pay fees for it. Not too happy since I had paid off the note 7 already. BTW, the local Tmo store told me they were expecting the phone to come back at the end of October.

    You will get an EIP charge on your bill but they will go in and credit it back.

    I wonder if they can force hundreds of people to do that? Plus, how can personnel tell the difference between a note 7 and an S7? That's going to be interesting...

    I haven't even tried to get my Samsung Posy credit sorted out. I honestly don't know if I'll bother. May just try and get the new 10 buck one. My Edge works ok,is just the little things that bug me about it. The way it handles defaults is stupid, for example. And it just doesn't feel as nice in the hand. It's not a bad phone. If I never had the Note it messy not even bother me.

    Edit: and the autocorrect is even weirder than the Note 7s as well. Never thought I'd say that.

    Yeah, it says "Ordered Processed: Ready for UPS" A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status will be updated.
    Did it move last night?

    BTW, on a side note, I decided to do away with the screen protector on the N7 while I wait. I love it! I see no scratches so far...and I have used the stylus quite a bit...

    These are my only complaints with the Edge. If it had the Grace UX I think I would be pretty much satisfied. I do have to say the Edge on the N7 is definitely more user friendly.

    Just called the Tmobile store closest to me. All out of the edge but said to call after 1 after UPS stops by. The hits just keep coming with this phone If they don't get any I will either just get a refund, or call stores 30 miles to my south and see if they can hold an edge for me until tomorrow when I can get down there or have them order it.

    My Note 5 is set to arrive today via UPS. I'm thinking of not even opening the box, and just sending it right back. I'm still using the Note 7, as it's working great with no heat issues. Plus, I still have an S6 lying around that works fine. I'm just concerned that somehow by activating the Note 5, it will be a hassle if and when the new Note 7 arrives and it's time to trade it in.
    I didn't know at the time, that I could've ordered the replacement online. I was in the Tmobile store probably an hr on Saturday they veered packed with various customers for other things.

    I was on Twitter DM yesterday and every time I asked a question, a different person would reply. Each one seemed to have their own take on everything I asked. They told me that there is no "waiting list" for when new phones come in. When they are in, anyone can come in and get a new one or replacement. For people that sat on theirs, there seems to be no advantage for them. They still have to go through the whole returns process. You aren't just walking in and switching out the phones.

    I honestly think T-mobile has no idea how long this will play out. This is why they are still issuing "loaners". . It's basically their way of saying "Here's a phone to use. New ones will be out in 2-4 weeks. Get on with your life. Don't call us. We'll call you when they're available."
    I just had questions on how they were going to bill me for simultaneous JOD's on each line. No one could even answer that accurately.

    Honestly, Grace UX and the hardware design are the reasons I considered the Note in the first place. I've never been a fan of TouchWiz and I thought Samsung finally got it right this time. The seamless curves and the black aluminum are so nice looking and feeling I was sold. I'd never used a Note other than in stores, so the spen wasn't something I was used to our sold on. I would've never considered Samsung before the Note 7.

    It's a testament to how great the Note 7 is that I didn't give up and get something else when all this started.
