    Ok thanks. I also got an s7 edge when I returned my note 7 and it was treated as a new purchase. Will I have to return that in a store?
    You shouldn't. Sounds like you are in my situation. You do need to find a patient and knowledgeable rep like I did that has time to deal with this as it is a real mess.

    So funny everyone wanted the Blue when it came out now everyone wants to jump on the Black band wagon now it's only Blue left.
    Apparently blue sold very well so Samsung shipped out a bunch of blue ones. One of the stores that I called said they received 20 replacements but they only had one left. All of the replacements they received were blue.

    I am tempted to just keep the s7 edge. Oh well. I have to work 11 hours today. I will just have to call tomorrow.

    Just spent a little over an hour at my local t-mobile store and was able to exchange for a new Note 7. Fortunately for me I kept the defective one. I saw a few people who sent there's back already and they ran into trouble. Turns out, their loaners were treated as a new phone purchase and not a temporary loaner. The only thing I have to do now is send back my loaner s7 edge. The manager at the T-mobile store told me to call the 844 number, and they'll sort it out. Even if that doesn't work, the loaner is still within the 14 day return window. So it seems I'm all set...hopefully

    Went to a store first thing this morning. Brought the old N7 and my loaner. They refused to even touch the loaner, completed a return for the N7, brought out a new N7; sku wasn't in the system. Couldn't give it to me.

    Went to a second store; they were doing exchanges of N7's; great! Saw that I had a loaner, stated they could not do anything and I would have to have the new N7 shipped to me.

    Called the 844 number, stated they could not ship me a replacement, and that I would have to go to a store. Trying a third store this evening.

    FUBAR is an understatement.

    This whole recall really shined a few holes on where the carriers could use some inprovements.

    I went to the store and they were completely clueless. No surprise. They said their manager wasn't allowing them to sell. So I called the 844 number again as a last ditch effort and low and behold they have my new Note 7 being shipped to the store now. Just got the text and email. So I'll have a to wait a couple more days I suppose but that's okay.
    Same thing happened to me here in Valencia, CA. Wasted 45 mins in the store while the rep was on hold for TMO to verify he could swap my phone. I ended calling the 844 while in store & they had the exchange set up to be delivered to the store, took less than 10mins.

    Hopefully, we will both get our replacements soon 😊

    Samsung problem is causing T-Mobile to have a bad rap as well. Sooo glad I didn't get a loaner. Poor on Samsung for causing the issue and shipping on a small amount and poor on T-Mobile not knowing left from right

    What all did you have to give back to them? Was it just the N7 or all the stuff that came in the box?

    I'm hoping to return just the phone and get an extra charger out of it.

    When I returned my original N7 the bad one, the store took just the phone and the box. I didn't have the cord handy (cat chewed all through it)

    When I went in my store, the rep they assigned me to, started to have an attitude as well. All I said was what colors do you have? She said I don't know, I am not sure I have it in stock....and no one should be picky because this is not a TMobile problem it's a Samsung problem. I told her right away, neither is it a customer problem but since I got my phone through TMobile I would hope that TMobile would "make" it their problem to make sure that this is a smooth transaction. I also told her that I would gladly have the phone mailed out to me but since it's not an option that TMobile is giving at this time, she will have to put up with the Note customers doing their exchanges......Manager came over (Because I was getting loud) and her attitude changed, it was smooth sailing after that. I guess she realized she was wrong, but I think she was more tired than anything as they made her stay over time to help because the store was extremely busy. This is why I will always order my phone to be shipped to me.
    That was my problem, too. Why get an attitude with me right off the bat? Anyways, I called the second store as soon as they opened. They said they had them and to come in. I walked in 5 minutes later. They were already doing a Note exchange for another guy. I waited about an hour to get to another rep as there were only 2 in store. I was able to exchange both mine and my husband's Note7s. He got the last black they had and I got another blue. They said they had 2 or 3 blue left after me, but there were also at least 2 people in line behind me for exchanges. The whole process took about an hour and 40 minutes. The rep I had knew what he was doing. The customer who had already started his exchange when I walked in was still dealing with the process when I walked out. Plus, the manager in the 2nd store called the manager from the 1st store to find out what had happened with my previous experience. Apparantly, the girl was new and misunderstood. They said they would talk to her about her attitude and apologized. I appreciated the 2nd store doing that for me.

    Just be glad you didn't order directly from Samsung, those people are getting screwed royally. They have no plan in place for an exchange, they won't send them a replacement until they get the bad one back first but UPS & FedEx won't handle them so they can't even do that and they are not willing to send out loaner phones. So those folks are stuck without any solution and are being told day after day that they should receive an email the next day with details regarding the exchange process. So no matter how bad of an experience you are having with getting an exchange you are still a whole lot better off than them.

    SOOO Livid right now!! Talked to Tmobile on Twitter who talked to the manager where I did the return and purchased the edge from. They're saying I was supposed to send the device via mail, even though I did the return in the store. Tmobile 1800 number says I basically just did an even swap for the Edge which ISNT true. They rang me up for the Edge as a new purchase and said they were refunding my card back.

    So basically I'm out of $800 something bucks until this is resolved.

    It's a messed up situation on all parts. I have a verizon line for work and looking at the comments on the verizon threads they all say verizon is the devil and the worst carrier ever. It's really too bad on all fronts, I love the note line, this is a huge black eye on samsung and the carriers are not helping the situation. Seems like a lack of communication from management on a process and how and when to follow the process.

    I have my new blue note 7....some said i would have to pay a fee since I had a loaner device and was refunded my taxes and down payment on my first note 7...but I did not have a fee due to a rep stating that all is waived for me...actually got another credit for over 60 something dollars since they thought i paid tax on my loaner device which i did but i was credited that back over a week ago so got double the gratitude.....and no fees

    Talked to tmobile again and finally got someone competent. Turns out the store didn't scan my phone into the system or something so it doesn't show at the warehouse it was scanned. Anyways 3-5 business days I should have my refund. a total colossal screw up on all parts! Next time no pre order and will only buy the phone if it's physically in stock at the actual store, or best buy if it is in store and unlocked.

    Has anyone exchanging at t-mobile gotten the $25 Samsung credit?
    If so how do they go about it, is it added to your bill, can you use it to purchase accessories, going to tmob later to try and get replacements.
