    Now I know that everyone is going to say to return the phone Yada Yada, but in the mist of all of the news of the recall, Ive been using my N7 since day 1 and I still haven't returned it and I don't know if I want to either, I have been charging it normally and haven't had any overheating issues even when leaving it on the charger for a substantial amount of time after its been fully charged and I feel like there's no need for a return, if your trying to say that every single n7 samsung has shipped out is a dud then I don't know what life is lol. That's just my 2 cents. And I know it's a risk but it's one I'm willing to take

    Mines running strong to.. So were those before their battery went south.

    I'm exchanging. I see no harm in swapping it out for free. No reason to take the chance.

    Totally get what your saying, I'm all for exchanging but I don't want to deal with all of that temp phone issues. If I could just be notified when I can walk in and exchange it than I definitely would.

    Samsung wants every phone back for a reason. They are NOT willing to take a risk. Now that the recall has been issued and there is widespread coverage of the issue, the longer people keep the device, the less Samsung is liable for failure and damage caused by the device.

    Why would you take an unnecessary risk? If you purchased a food product that might have e. coli or a vehicle with a potentially faulty restraint system wouldn't you want to protect yourself? This was never about inconvenience, but safety.

    Depends on carrier. T-Mobile will notify me once avaliable... I'll go in and swap. Till then I'll use my phone.

    Mine was running strong.

    Yesterday was my first real scare. It got up to 100 degrees plugged in the standard charger. First time it got that hot for me, even plugged in. It usually however anywhere from 83-90 when charging .

    That was enough of a scare for me to completely turn it off as of today. Borrowing a Z Force from a friend and will not be turning my Note on until it's ready to be swapped.

    Wow. This nuts having this attitude and really can be dangerous. Samsung is making a conscious decision to protect our welfare and make sure we stay safe. An inconvenience that will end up with a great outcome ...not having a potentially defective dangerous phone due to battery.
    You are putting yourself at risk.. It could very well be OK but Samsung is asking all Note 7's sold traded out. You will be held accountable if something happens. And you won't be able to seek financial reimbursement because you won't have a legal leg to stand on.
    You should be mature and forthcoming and swap it out. Your attitude is higher than thou and quite glib. It is far better to be safe than sorry.

    Yeah just turn it in and get a fresh device and fresh accessories... There's no downside here.... You will literally risk getting severely burnt because you don't wanna redownload apps and re-enter some passwords... Seems kinda silly

    Over the years I have transported tens of thousands of pounds of lithium, magnesium, Class 1 explosives, and nuclear fuel rods and some other dangerous items via truck. I am well aware the dangers lithium can pose. This whole recall is bigger than necessary because Samsung does not have records of which batteries from which factory went into which phone. Sure, I can see there may be some defective batteries that went into some phones. I just do not believe that every phone or even a sizable amount of phones has defective batteries in them presently.

    When a food manufacturer does a recall because a food item was/is contaminated, they know the exact lot numbers effected and can target the recall to the actual product that is bad, versus causing a mass panic among people who really were not effected at all.

    Samsung needs to get the CPSC involved and do an actual recall, not one where every person is being given a different answer by a different fool working at a carrier store and/or customer service call center. I have been away this week and do not even have my Note 7 with me to use. It works better using my iPhone and call my kids iPad or iPhone directly. By the time I get home this Friday maybe more of this recall will be smoothed out.

    It will take a while for Samsung to get all these phones back to them since there are restrictions on shipping damaged or recalled lithium batteries via air.

    If you keep it, and it burns your house down in 8 mos, then it's on YOU. If you exchange it, and it burns your house fown in 8 mos, it's on samsung...

    Seems like an obvious choice to me....

    I will follow Samsung's direction as I don't want to take responsibility if it catches on fire and kills someone. I also don't charge it overnight. Since Samsung hasn't issued a stop use recommendation, only a recommendation to exchange the phone then that is exactly what I will do... Exchange it when there is a replacement.

    I have no issue with the trouble and time to exchange and set up the phone. My only concern now is my unit is almost perfect to me, no reboot issue, no lag, no spen issue. And I'm afraid my replacement will not be as good.

    Yeah, exactly...

    This is nothing new as far as li and lipo batteries are concerned....

    I use an ecig, and I am far more concerned about those batteries running away, than I am my cell phone.

    That being said... I'm not all that concerned...

    It's a rare occurrence, but it does happen when you are storing so much juice, in such a small package...

    I have played around with ecigs too. Not worried one will suddenly catch on fire. Too many other things in life to be concerned with. I sleep peacefully at night!

    As for the Note 7, yes, I will exchange it when new stock is available. Not because I am concerned for the Note 7 I have, currently sitting at home 1400 miles away, but rather for the impact it may have on any warranty claim or resale value down the road. I am sure potential buyers on Swappa and such will be wanting a Note 7 with a manufactured date later than the recall so they do not feel they are buying a defective device.

    I am sorry, but I can't disagree strongly enough. Firstly, Samsung is telling everyone to replace their phones. Secondly, you potentially make Samsung unnecessarily look bad if something goes wrong later down the line.

    Can you imagine a couple of months pass and there are more phones frying up because people didn't do what Samsung said and kept their original phones. You don't have a clue if it will be your phone next to melt.

    I cannot believe all the people posting saying they are keeping their phones. You are putting yourself at risk and potentially helping to further damage the reputation of Samsung if any of these original batch phones fry up later. Even a single phone 2 months later will be a major headline. The media won't care if it was because it was an original batch phone that someone refused to replace.

    Obviously not all the Note 7 units are faulty, but if you are getting a replacement for free, why not go for it, just to be on the safer side ?

    I am not saying that I won't replace my phone or that it is not a good idea to replace my phone but until Samsung or Verizon sends me a certified letter to STOP using my phone, Samsung is still labile if my phone blows up under normal conditions. The buck still stops at Samsung.

    Mines is running great since the first minute I've owned it on release day to this very moment as I'm typing this post.

    However I'll be at my local ATT this morning returning it since I have my Edge+ as a backup. I'll simply and patiently wait for the replacements to come in.

    I'm going to continue to use mine until the new one's arrive. It works fine. When T Mobile tells me the new ones are here, I'll turn it in.

    I love my N7 - just the way it is. It's incredible, IMO!
    That said, I'll replace it just to be safe.
    I just hope my N7 2.0 is as solid as my 1.0.

    This. My phone is running so perfectly. I initiated this phone by logging into Google and then loading each app one at a time. Now if I use Samsung Backup to restore my next one... In theory it should set up the same. That's the story in sticking with anyways

    I was having slight lag and battery problems myseld, nothing crazy. I did a full reset and did not use smart switch and it was a vast improvement. I have a s7e on the nightstand I could use but I am stubbornly waiting till new stock comes in for a exchange.

    I get the thought, my Note 7 was running just fine. With that said, the rep running Smart Switch made this S7 edge seem like I just swapped out my current setup for one on a slightly smaller device. I'm usually all about installing everything one by one and customizing things to perfection, but for a temporary switch it's actually been quite convenient. That and the peace of mind I have now.
