    Wow I feel so so bad for all of y'all that got from Samsung directly what a mess. If possible try to get a carrier or best buy to exchange it because Samsung seems to be changing their story from what i read or tell credit card company to block the charge and get refunded. That way you can get it from carrier directly. Such a huge company and such pathetic way of handling their customers it's sad. I almost bought from them and because i dont like delayed gratification I ordered mine from best buy originally for in store pick up. Yikes. Good luck to all.
    Bbarbie,

    Several of us have tried that and they won't do it.

    Has anyone else heard that they are personally going to deliver the replacement phones and pick up the exploding ones ? That's how they did it in Korea. I put refund on my form so how is that going to work ? Has anyone gotten the 'special packaging' to return the phone ? Thanks

    That number from Texas isn't "Samsung in Texas." It's just a call center mill called Harte Hanks Inc. I'm betting Samsung outsourced them to help out since their already outsourced Digital River outfit was too inept to handle the volume.

    Disaster all around.

    Crazy, she is the one who said she was from Texas. The only thing I had asked her was, "Does she actually work for Samsung"? Of course she hesitated for a minute and then said, "Yes".

    Bah. Probably just a temp contract job. Kinda like those people at Best Buy. The shirt days Samsung but their employer is a promotional marketing company.

    Call the number back. You will get a generic recording and can only leave a voicemail. It's a call mill.

    Yeah, I've left a few rants there also. Even called out Samsung for lying to us about an exchange program.

    Stores got them in a week ago.

    None of this matters. It's not over until it arrives.

    Absolute circus. I am embarrassed for them. I let their support know via a DM Convo on twitter that I'm using it full tilt around the clock since Samsung has given me no alternative. Asked them to wish me luck.

    And the law firm just called me back. They are referring the case to their attorneys. If this is a class action, feel free to join up. Again if Samsung"fixes" this tomorrow, doesn't forgive the weeks of silence and danger they forced on us to keep the devices in our homes. Aside from burying them in our backyard, we've been given no reasonable disposal direction. That's concerning.
    I think you are taking this a little too far. For a recall like this one, it's nice that samsung is at least getting replacement devices out there less than 6 weeks later...if this phone was so life and death to you...you should of just switched to a different samsung phone...geez ....a lawsuit is just overkill...you had an option to just throw your device away and keep it out of your home or simply power it off....smh...you would think your house already burned down by your actions

    I was waiting on this. Fair enough.

    I have a backup iPhone I bought as a result of this mess, so I'm technically just fine. It's the principle that I take issue with, laid out in a few main points:

    • There was never a loaner program
    • There was no proactive communication about timelines
    • We had no reasonable option (and still don't) to rid this dangerous device from our homes. If it's too dangerous for FedEx to transport, it's too dangerous to be in our homes. Yes, even powered off as they would be for transport.
    • There are no updates about progress. Any information is scuttlebutt on forums or from proactive customers calling in and begging for information. Calls for help are answered with "please wait a day or two. Just wait."
    • Carriers have gone above and beyond to help their customers out...customers of Samsung. Those who ordered the exact same phone from Samsung are receiving a very inferior level of care and attention to this serious CPSC driven safety recall.


    I mean, I'm not like "GIMMIE MAH PHONEZ I NEED THE PHONEZ!" I just want a reasonable amount of communication, care and action for a device that apparently can ignite at any moment. Dramatic? Don't think so. Even Samsung's first response to anything is "POWER IT DOWN IMMEDIATELY." (that's their concerned lawyers talking, BTW).

    So, they know it is dangerous and they haven't provided a single method to remove this device from our homes. That's the basis for the aggravation. The CPSC, based on my interactions with them, finds this troubling as well.

    Lawsuit? I mean maybe, depending if the CA firm takes it on. I don't really care. It's about treating your customers right. If Samsung/Digital River/Ingram Micro/whomever is behind their web sales just COMMUNICATED with their customers about progress/etc, we'd be mostly cooled off. After all, they are well protected behind international phone trees so we are at their mercy. Carrier customers can just walk in and talk with a human. It's not unreasonable for us, given this separation in interaction, to desire at least a low level of proactive communication directly to us.

    Had Samsung.com immediately offered a solution to dispose of this purported dangerous device (i.e. take to a carrier store immediately, dispose of and have the carrier record the IMEI) that would have been just peachy.

    Silence was and still is their solution. That's not ok.

    Received SMS message from FedEx at 603 pm CST today with a link to package tracking.
    2 pound box shipped 2 day fedex yesterday from plainfield, indiana to illinois. It is currently in memphis, tn
    Signature delivery by 430 pm tomorrow at my work

    Havent heard from samsung about the shipment.
    I would have been less stressed if they would follow proper ettiquete and kept me informed like sending a promised shipping notification email yesterday afternoon.

    I filled out the online form at 10 pm on Thursday Sept 23. It will be 4 business days, not replacement receipt in 2 to 3 days promised last Thursday.

    Lets hope a happy Note 7 is in box.

    Others have reported receipt of phone today but no return packaging, shipping labels, or instructions on bomb disposal. How will we return the recalled phones?

    C'mon Samsung USA, we deserve better.

    First off many customers at carriers didn't get the royal treatment. Many of us were mistreated very badly especially from Sprint. It was hell trying to get my phone. And I know a lot of people still haven't gotten their phones yet because the carriers are selling the phones instead of doing exchanges. Most of the carriers had the phones for a week or more but refused to start doing the exchanges till a certain date. BS because I know there wasn't a date set. They would lie to the customers saying they don't have the phones yet. They are still doing it now. And in the meantime they sell the phones.

    I just got an email from Samsung with tracking.

    Guess that's my cue to shut up and quit whining. Ok I guess.

    At least they are still consistent inconsistent.

    Edit. It will be delivered tomorrow. What a shift in communication. Super strange.

    I just want this to end and the old device out of my home. That's all this was ever about.

    Coolbreeze78, Glad you are getting yours and the craziness is about over for you. Still waiting on mine. Hopefully it will behave as it should. I agree with your earlier post in that the lack of truthful communications was the biggest issue with this. I think we all probably could have handled, "sorry guys this is a huge mess and we are working to get it resolved", But we didn't get that, we got everything but that. Anyway I regress and say glad your time with this is about over. Let us know how the new one is.

    I received a new replacement from Verizon yesterday It got fairly warm during initial setup but, nothing to worry about when charged it barely developed any heat at all. I also ran a IMEI check Galaxy Note7 Safety Recall and Exchange Program and it said it was fine I guess time will tell.

    Jhimmel,

    Just curious, did Fed ex notify you that you had it coming if Samsung didn't? Didn't know if there was a way I could check and see if anything coming to my house from Fed ex..

    There are a couple of ways, and I checked both.

    One is FedEx insight, which is supposed to notify you of incoming shipments, but its spotty at best, and has never worked for me, and takes a few days to set up.

    More probable is using your Order Number and using FedEx track by reference. This is how I tracked my original shipment.

    Could someone who has received shipping info check their tracking number and let us know what order number shows up in the details? I tried both my original order number and the new $0 order, no tracking info for me.
