    That's because Gizmodo didn't take it to the authorities.
    They went the extra mile high club with the Note 7 though. iPhone, not so much.

    No. There wouldn't be any batteries to replace them with just like there aren't any Note 7 to replace the faulty Note 7s with. You'd be left with a phone with no battery until new batteries were made.
    Exactly. Why are people not getting this? There aren't just batteries sitting around in a where house, ready for every occasion lol

    Why couldn't they have gotten batteries from ATL who made the good batteries?

    Samsung SDI will no longer supply batteries for the Galaxy Note 7, after issues with battery fires and explosions required a mass recall of handsets.

    For those of us still on the 7 what are you using to read battery temp?

    That is not what I said. I said the entire car is recalled, not replaced. Wth?
    The whole point is that if only the battery was defective, and not sealed, Samsung would have the option of manufacturing good batteries and only replacing the battery, not the whole phone.Samsung could recall the phone, customers take them to their local carrier...ATT/Sprint/Best Buy...whatever. The carrier would swap the batteries and you're done. Simple as that! That would be more convenient for the customer and cheaper for Samsung.

    They can and will, I believe. But those batteries weren't just sitting around waiting for an incident like this. All of this is taking time for testing and approval.

    Of course there aren't 2.5 million batteries sitting in a where [sic] house! They have to make them! Instead of making the whole phone, they would only have to make the batteries.

    I'm still confused. If there aren't new phones with new batteries now, how would they get just batteries to suppliers now?

    Yes, you're right. You'd still have to wait. And turn in a defective battery and have a phone without a battery, so no working phone. Instead you can have a replacement, loaner or trade of a working phone.

    Right. In other words, there is NO easy way out of this. "If they had just" doesn't work in this scenario. We are where we are, and imagining removable battery scenarios in your head is counter productive.

    It wouldn't have prevented any damage, nor would it have sped up any recovery

    Yes, I returned my Note7 for a full refund, accessories included. Although, I do still have 2 cases I ordered from Amazon. I still signed up for the replacement notifications through Best Buy, however, I have a bad feeling that I'll be made to wait until the fulfill those (at least at the store i purchased/registered with) because I am seeing other people posting receipts showing they have a hold on a New Note7. I didn't receive anything, nor did I have a chance to get on any list in my local store. I want to get the Note7 again, so I have a feeling that I'll have to wait until the rest of the world is allowed/supposed to be able to purchase them again. I took the step to return for a refund because I too didn't want to be paying down a purchase on my CC that I wasn't even able to use.

    As seen in the Verizon thread, the phone that exploded was a Galaxy Core. See video below.

    This makes things far worse!! Now, it's not just a Note 7 catching fire, it's a different Galaxy device. This can easily cast doubt on all Samsung phones. Truly a worst case scenario. And what I reiterated before in another thread, that Samsung needs to get it's quality control in order. As I said before, Samsung washing machines have also been recalled and there have been reports of them catching fire also.

    Wow that sucks... I didn't think of that. I just thought, "bad luck for samsung note 7 because every phone that catches fire they are going to call Note 7."

    The Emergency Medical Unit in Boston with the Samsung Active, the 6-year old with the Core (Removeable battery too!!), doesn't matter if the Jeep had a Note 7 or not... worse if not now... cause now you just have the impression "All Samsungs have bad batteries and go boom."

    But who made the battery in the Active? Or the Core? If it's all Samsung SDI then you have an issue. Apple will have to wonder too because Samsung SDI was listed as a supplier to Apple this year. They probably supply batteries to most others too.

    There's been reports of a lot of things catching fire by all brands. They only get media attention like this because of the note 7 recall.

    Maybe they had an aftermarket no name battery in it 😕

    Apparently the boy had been playing for hours. I wouldn't even trust that with an iPhone. Let's see which websites print updates, and which ones go on letting their readers believe it was a Note 7

    It doesn't matter at this point and if they did make the correction, then it just makes it worse then you give the impression all Samsungs are blowing up. It could get govt widening investigation to more models maybe??

    If the government wants to widen the investigation then they better include every model of every phone from every manufacturer.
