    Wasn't sure if this should be included in the recall general, but when I saw there where 713 replies I figured I'd start this thread so we could collect recall information here as it is released.

    If this thread is redudant feel free to delete.

    I will return mine (verizon, bought at best buy) when they can swap it in store. Until then, it's working perfect and I'm not going to bother. The only reason I'll return it in the first place is because it'll affect the resale to have a "pre-recall" device.

    That said... I may not leave it charging in the car unattended... If it catches on fire by my bedside I can wake up and put it out. (I don't expect it'll be a problem).

    Same here. I won't be replacing mine until I can walk into a T-Mobile store and swap it with no down time. Or they mail me one and I can send this one back.

    I won't charge at night anymore out of over overabundance of caution.

    Thanks for posting the link. That was what I was going for here, a collection of information and links concerning what Note7 owners can do to get this fixed.

    Same. I won't be inconvenienced. I don't have a back up phone lying around so until I can exchange it in store or have one sent to me while I still have this one to use then I will return it.

    Normally a bad cell is obvious within the first few charges showing at least one of these attributes:

    Gets hot

    Poor battery life

    Goes boom

    If none of those issues are exhibited early on, you should be good.

    hmm... I never thought of that

    As I posted in another thread... since you are all getting new phones... let's put the glass to the test or put the rumors to rest. Everyone drop your phones!

    Case or no case. Carpet to concrete. 12 inches to... 5 feet lets say. Tap it on the sides and corners! Do it all!

    I have not experienced any of those issues. Only when using an adapter to use a micro USB cable. Even then it only got a little warm not hot enough to say it's going to blow up. After that I've used a wireless charger to charge overnight and also a USB c charger when I need to at work or at home. The phone has never got hot.

    Here's Sprint's auto-reply via chat...I find it facinating they haven't stopped sales through their website:

    From what I read the phones that "exploded" during charging were their over seas models that were shipped within South Korea and because of this they put a halt on the latest batch of phones from shipping out to perform more quality checks. Samsung makes a slightly different model for it's US variants versus the ones that are shipped to other countries. At the moment there is not any known issue listed but I'm sure out device team is looking into the issue.

    9 am in Ft. Lauderdale right now... Just waiting to get out of work and head off to Naples for the 3-day weekend.
    In the meantime, if I gotta be at the desk...

    Was quietly thinking the same thing. Battery manufacturer is unknown so no bad rap for them.

    Anyone else see that Samsung is going to give free S7 Edges to customers in Korea while they wait for new Note7s. Wonder if US carriers will do the same. Now that would keep those who wandered from iPhone on their platform..... Right before big iPhone 7 launch.

    After talking with Verizon. All of the battery issues are overseas like I thought! Verizon said to call Samsung like all other service providers. Samsung is taking orders for new batch that of phone that are coming in 2 weeks time. If your phone is not overheating then you are fine. 0.1 owners are affected. Samsung is just taking precautions!
