    It's all fun and games until the first lawsuit hits target because someone's phone explodes that they would not return.

    Although I want to agree, Target wont get any lawsuits, as Samsung and the carriers already sent messages and warnings telling you to turn off the device. And after the recent update, this just covers their butts even more. But of course no reports of the note 7 incidents after the device was completely shut off.

    Yeah but I think they are still valid because some stores I checked before are now showing new stock and the price went from NA to $899

    i doubt they would use the same DPCI as their recall page Product Recall Article Page

    How is it that Samsung says no later than the 21st for all outlets, and Target has none in. I was there when the mail came into receiving and we only got 2 iPhone 7 otter box cases in. This is frustrating.

    Thanks, good info, but I would agree with the poster that I doubt the recalled DPCI are the same as the new DPCI.
    A few of my stores have on hand qtys but no saleable qtys, makes me think they have recalled ones still in their system?

    Any of the target employees in here able to find the new DPCIs and share with us?

    Is there any downside to just returning and rebuying somewhere else at this point? You'd only miss out on the $25 Samsung credit, right?

    The two year upgrade price is $50 cheaper at Verizon corporate than it was at Target, so I'd still come out ahead and get the phone sooner--or am I missing anything?

    Anybody who did the return did you need all the original packaging and whatnot?
    AT&T required all packaging and everything that came with the phone.

    I will say the first AT&T store said they wouldn't do the exchange. That I had to go through Target. Second store is the one I worked with last night and they worked it out.

    Thanks. Ya although I got the first one about shutting off your phone from AT&T, haven't got this one yet.
    I did contact the AT&T Store, and the associate spoke to the Samsung rep who said you had to exchange the device back at the "point of sale", he said this was on samsung's site, I don't recall this information, but either way didn't matter all they had were the Blue Model's in lol, Guess this round Black will be the rare one.
    Might contact Samsung directly and see if they can personally handle my exchange instead.

    Might want to take a look at the Samsung recall thread here on the forums. They are having a worse time of getting replacement Note 7s.

    If you have more than one AT&T store around, I would check around.

    Went to my local verizon store which has new note 7s in stock. They said they couldn't help me because I bought it at Target. I asked if they could shut this one down and sell me a replacement and then I would return old one to target and they said no. Guy told me "The only way you would be able to walk out of here with a new note 7 would be to buy it at full retail price, which we are not even allowing until we have had time to exchange customer's old ones"

    Looks like returning it to target for a refund isn't a great idea either...

    I contacted Samsung directly and told them about Target not having replacement in, by the 21st. She took down a bunch of info, name, number, imei, carrier, store location and number, etc and said they would contact them directly. And told me to contact them back in 24-48hours again
    Well see...

    All I know is some Targets that didn't show stock before are now and also have a price listed where they didn't before. When I bought my original note at launch it said saleable quantity zero then too.

    My Verizon said if I could return it to Target that I could then go there and buy one. He said they are selling as well as exchanging. Problem is my Target won't let me return because I don't still have the box.

    Well if saleable qty was zero when you bought one, then saleable qty must mean something other than "quantity available for sale"
    Good job Target....

    After being denied and exchange at a corporate Verizon store, I just did a straight up return to the Target I purchased the phone from, went back to Verizon and they added the new phone to my account. No credit pull or anything.

    Target didn't have any in stock. So i went to a local sprint corporate store and talked with the manager about the exchange. Super simple. Only needed phone and box to scan barcode. Took 15 minutes with some paperwork and now setting up my new phone. He even offered a change in color. No extra charges or fees. Would have to talk to sprint customer support for the $25 credit.

    Great experience 😃

    Great, so both At&t and Sprint are taking care of target customers but not Verizon

    I called two Target stores in Katy, TX and one said they had no idea when the replacements would be in and the other said they expect new phones this coming Monday. So I'm not sure what to believe. They said they have a list of everyone who purchased one so they think that an email will be sent out notifying when you can come swap it out.
