    That's for replacements I believe. How many here are going to jump the the S8 Edge? it seems Note users jump to the Edge, then buy the Note when the new one comes out.
    I don't want an edge. The Note 7 having a smaller edge is acceptable to me. Barely. But even with Jump I'll stick to the Note series. Maybe by the end of September new customers can purchase them.

    This is directly from the Samsung website:
    "Our first priority will be to provide exchange program participants with a new Note7 as approved by the CPSC. New Note7s will be available at your carrier and retail outlets no later than September 21, 2016."
    The way I read it is that after taking care of the exchange program participants, new Note 7's will be avaiable to buy no later than September 21st. But that is just my interpretation.
    From the official Samsung email I received:

    "Samsung is announcing that new Galaxy Note7 replacement devices will be available in the United States at most retail locations no later than September 21, 2016."

    Chatted with BB as well... They're going in order of their reserved list that they've been actively creating ....

    I expect the stores will hold on to stock for at least the first week to provide immediate replacements. I.e. if you're looking to buy and you're not on a reserve list or with a loaner, then you'll most likely have to wait to purchase.

    I'm pulled the ripcord and am getting off this crazy train. I turned in my Note7 on 9/7/2016 and changed to a 7Edge. Not happy with the phone at all (it's ok, but not a Note). I want the Note experience (I did have a Note3 way-back-when). Did some research and picked up a new Note4 and will get the 7Edge returned before the two week window, will use my 256GB memory card, and have 6.0.1 to work with. Good enough for what I use the phone for. I have my work iPhone 6S+ and the Note-whatever was always intended to be my personal device.

    That will run me 1/3 the cost of a Note7, so I will use that phone for a year and see what happens with any newer versions. Not concerned with the iris scanner, IP78, and losing the edge features. Note5 was an option but no SD and removable battery, so that was off the table.

    Lesson learned about going with a newly released model like this, what a bummer.

    I did the same thing and chucked the Note 7 for the Edge the other day and now replacements are out, but I'm just sick of the whole ordeal with this phone and the Stigma that's with it now. The Edge is a great device and if rumors are true and the Edge 8 is out in Feb then I'll probably get that then. I'll have an S7 and S7 edge to trade in which will eat a lot of the cost! I would expect Samsung will really beef the S8 Edge up after the Note 7 debacle to try and win business back. I would expect a lot on this forum will dump the N7 for the S8 Edge when it comes out like they done the last two years when the edge comes out and then will end up buying a Note later in the year when that's out.

    Whatever happens now the Note 7 will always be known as the exploding phone. Has to have a major effect on sales and resale prices.
    Nope. It is a fantastic phone and I only returned mine because Samsung said to. I had no issues with it. Never an indication of a possible meltdown. I will gladly buy a new one when they are available.

    Well one thing I notice, on the always on screen, the side swipe actions for the ticker is MUCH easier for me at least on the Edge than the Note 7 which took multiple swipes due to the smaller edges.

    ... which, let's face it, is probably the best thing anyone can do. This phone is plagued with problems.

    I will read this forum with interest and first see how those with exchanges fare!

    If, after a couple of months (and updates) those things function as supposed to ... I get one ๐Ÿ˜†.

    Mind, by that time there will be more details about the S8, which, after this fiasco, will have to be the show boat for Samsung.

    Cnet.com is reporting "If you're a Galaxy Note 7 owner, you're in luck -- finally. You'll be able to get your replacement within the next week.
    Samsung on Thursday said new Note 7 replacement devices will be available in the US at most retail locations no later than Sept. 21.

    https://www.cnet.com/news/samsung-ga...-september-21/

    Well, to go back on the topic, Samsung Romania just confirmed the date of 19th of September. They said that people who already have the phone can go to replace it and the ones who preordered the phone and are still waiting for it *me*, the same date applies. So, two weeks from now we'll be seeing the Note7 again in the stocks ready to rise *again* and shine. Hopefully this time without any hardware/software problems *fingers crossed*. Although I hardly believe they could afford any more bugs, from both the financial and reputation point of view.

    The time that I had the phone.. it was a fantastic device. To be honest - it was one of the best phones I've had the opportunity to use and I seriously considered keeping it until the replacement came.

    The only issue I had with my phone was that the battery lost its charge (with near full charge). It never charged correctly after that. Two days later they announced the recall. When it lost its charge a second time and reports started coming in of exploding devices, I got the loaner.

    Obviously if there are any issues with the battery on the replacement device I'll be returning it.

    I actually think that the new phone will probably get near the same amount of battery performance as this S7e loaner I have.

    Does anybody know if we have to bring back the note 7 box/charger/adapters or just the phone when we exchange? Will we be getting brand new, in the box phones?
    If you have all that just bring it and save yourself all the aggregation.
    I just chatted online with a VZW rep...and not that I believe this, but he told me that the Note 7's wouldn't available in VZW corporate stores until September 30th for replacements.

    So, I said - "but we only have until September 30th to exchange without having to pay the restock fee, right?" and he said yes. So, I said "Do you mean to tell me that the new phones won't be in until 9/30 and we only have until 9/30 to exchange, meaning that EVERY one of us with an older Note 7 are supposed to rush into the VZW store ON September 30th to swap?" His answer was that I could exchange for something else in the meantime and then come after 9/30 to exchange for the new Note 7.

    Again, I don't believe it. That's ludicrous.

    Contacted a Samsung rep and she said that even if you never ordered a note 7, you can still purchase one of the replacements starting September 21st. -Just in case any new buyers were wondering when they could purchase one.

    Also, I've heard that some people already got their's?? Did any of you get your replacement yet? All I've heard is that they should start coming in stock on Monday.

    That's for South Korea. Might be for others, but not everyone is getting in line for a replacement. Some are satisfied with what they have now. Stores aren't going to wait weeks for people to decide to get a Note 7.
    So most likely, USA is the 21st. Or earlier if you're lucky and the store doesn't know. A few have their replacements all ready http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=725395

    Note 7s are going on sale again on 9/21? I thought that is the date we can swap bad ones for good ones at carrier stores, right? Did I miss something? People got their repacements already, but no one actually bought new ones yet, right?

    Edited my post. Yes the swap is happening that day. But not everyone is going to swap. Some went to the iPhone, some like the Edge better, one went back to his Note 5 and doesn't think he will go back to a 7, others are waiting to see how the replacements work out, etc.

    Stores won't hold inventory for a week waiting for someone to decide.

    I've spoken with sales people at brick and mortar stores and I've spoken with T-Mobile reps on line. So far the score is


    2 say I can buy a new Note 7 on the 21st, that they're shipping more than just replacement Note 7's.

    1 said I won't be able to buy a Note 7 until sometime in October.

    For the record, the T-Mobile rep on the phone said I could buy 1 the day the store have them in stock. That they're shipping more than just replacements.

    Realistically, stores cannot guess how many people will come to THEIR store asking for a replacement and hold their stock forever. You bought at one BB you can go to the nearest BB to replace when available. Same for carrier stores. Previous posts say 2 say he can buy a new Note 7... those two guys are gonna sell a new Note 7 if they get the chance... they may allocate some for recall only but if they run out of stock for original owners... they are gonna tell them they ran out replacing them and waiting on next order.

    A lot of people have argued that they won't start releasing it to the general public till October, but from a business stand point, that seems very unrealistic. First come first serve, right? (Of course I do think they will save a couple for replacements). And I mean they do get new shipments weekly, so it's not a big deal.

    Also, go to the stores that area telling people to keep their Note 7 and exchange if you get a scratch (or blows up). They will be selling to anyone.

    Keep Note 7? It is like having free cell phone insurance. - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
    That's thread is a lot of rubbish and the alleged comment of the sales person, if true (I doubt it) is irresponsible.

    Ignore and be sensible. If you have a chance to exchange, do it now do it soon.
