    More hearsay / BS. Not one solid proof of a Note 7 in the USA blowing up or catching fire.
    Samsung has already said that half of the failed units that were part of their original investigation came from the United States.

    EDIT: found one of the articles, from 9/2 .... 17 from SK, 17 from the US and 1 from Taiwan.

    http://www.news.com.au/technology/ga...bf545e0579ddc6

    And this was BEFORE reports of Australian units that failed.... which was followed by Samsung Austrailia recommending that all Note 7 owners power down their devices and not to use them until they are replaced.

    Samsung Galaxy Note7 may be recalled over fire risk

    Don't bother, he won't believe this is happening unless he see's one burn up right in front of him.

    Man, I can smell that class action lawsuit coming in the very near future.

    Don't worry though, Samsung is offering everyone a $25. bill credit as compensation for all these problems.

    So this guy is a firefighter and left home with his phone charging in the garage? And on the same outlet with an air compressor?

    IF the phone was the cause, it was clearly on a flammable surface or next to flammable materials.

    Man, wishful thinking is such a dangerous thing. I'm really surprised how many people are susceptible to this. Samsung has issued a global recall, are they full of it too?

    This isn't surprising at all... When there has been numerous statements released to return the device asap. When I called about options for the loaner / exchange - while not directly stating to not use the phone - they "strongly" and "highly recommended" I return it for safety reasons.

    If it's not clear previously it should be now.. imho everyone should really consider stop using the phone immediately. I expect this may make the headlines tonight.

    Why is it clear now? Because the guy owned a Note 7? There has been no cause determined and it may be a few days before the investigator determines the cause. There are over 50,000 electrical fires every year so until cause is determined it's just as likely it was an electrical fire.

    Seems like a firefighter looking to cash in on the Note 7 recall. Just what I think.

    Bet he already has an ambulance chasing lawyer on the case.

    You know... I thought the same thing when I heard he was a FF....

    Being a first responder, I am sure he got some sort of bulletin about the potential fire risk. Thinks... 'hmm.... I need a new garage, a nice two bay job with a lift for my camaro..."

    Plus this guy and his family are staying in a hotel because a small corner of his 2 car garage has been burnt. Seems might fishy to me.

    Who leaves their phone at home when they go out to pick up their kids?

    Ahhh, give him the benefit of the doubt... there's probably smoke/water damage to the house too - at least smoke!

    Except work, my employer doesn't allow carrying weapons so it stays in my car. If I don't have a pistol on me it's at least in my car. Except when I take my college courses since here in FL it can actually get you arrested carrying into a college.

    I would like to return mine until they get replacements out but I bought mine at Target and they refuse to take it back. So I am being forced to keep using mine or go without a phone.
    I am a supervisor at Target. Target mobile is a 3rd party vendor. I'm in close contact with the team lead there so as soon as they know, I'll know and post here. For the record my phone is through Verizon at Target and I'm still using mine because there is no other viable choice at the moment.

    Until the new note 7s comes out I'm only charging my phone on the toilet seat. If it exolodes, it will melt the seat and fall into the toilet. Crisis averted.
