    I would rather go back to the Note 4 and get my upgrade back then be stuck with the Note 5 for 2 years.

    What in the world is a "J" series????....no way, I don't think so....Ok now I am tired of Samsung, the CPSC and their bull. Either give people a decent and comparable choice of phone, hassle free and without all the hoopla going on, CPSC test the phones already instead of sending people all the emails and putting out notices, it's only making the situation worse because some die hard people won't give back the phone........WOW, is all I can say. This is an all around S..t fest. (excuse my french).

    The replacement phones already shipped out long ago. The problem is now that people can't exchange for the new phones until (if) the government clears it.
    I doubt Samsung has already manufactured, tested and shipped millions of devices within a week of finding the issue. The original phones have only been out for about 3 weeks..

    Do you think that will happen soon? Also is the damage done already to this years note's reputation?

    Trying to find out if we can get the loaner phone, and if it takes longer then expected if we can go through the second part of the exchange and just return the whole thing.

    Just making sure we can still use option 2 if we pick option 1 first.

    EDIT:

    Nope we can only pick 1 option.


    Either loaner phone and wait for note 7s to arrive

    or

    Exchange phone.

    Inconvenienced by people looking out for you. Now that's a good one. It's just a phone. Next year there will be a better one. Be safe...

    I'm so torn . I love my blue coral/gold Note 7 but I know I should probably return to my gold S7 Edge, which was admittedly flawless.

    It's called get a full refund and go buy a different phone or suck it up or play Russian roulette with what you have.

    Once Samsung realized which of the 2 companies had the bad batteries. They had the one which had the good batteries continue making Note 7's. So they never stopped. That is why China go the Note 7's without issues.

    No one is looking out for anyone. Everyone is just covering their own behinds, and tbis recall is the biggest goatscrew I've ever seen. Everyone involved ought to be ashamed at the way this has been handled.

    For me it is New Note 7 or back to the Note 4 and get my upgrade back. No other choice for me.

    Lol, I don't know where you're getting your information, but I'd stop getting it there.

    Most of the phones in the US were made in China. If those were without issues/risk, they wouldn't be recalling every single Note 7 that is being used right now (including the ones from China). There is no way these government agencies would let them just continue using the same batteries that they're telling everyone to stop using.. That makes no sense whatsoever.

    This thing makes phone calls? That's like the 15th thing on the list that I use this phone for. It's more than just a phone to many people.

    Well by covering their own buts they are making sure they get these bad phones out of consumers hands. I'm sure everyone wants a safe produc and that will take time. IMOP the N7 is DOA at least until November. No way they will allow them to be sold again without 100% assurance this won't happen again.

    So we might be better to just suck it up, and wait for next fall and hopefully they go all out on it?
