    I wonder what the official recall means for the timing of replacements.

    Note where it says you will be given a temporary phone until the new ones are ready. Doesn't sound like they are all that close to being approved.

    Any mention of plans right now are speculation and/or original replacement/loaner options being reiterated. Definitive plans won't be announced until the official statement is given. Hang tight... Less than an hour to know.

    I agree. I saw your yahoo link and it seems either new ones aren't ready or the lovely cspc isn't ready to let go of this and approve fast. Note how the article also mentioned other samsung phones exploding so that tells me that it may be another factor to add to this mess, even though those others are not note 7 phones. Last glimmer of hope I have is that our lovely cspc will say hey they are approved let's see at 4.15....if no time line is given or if it's taking months I'm done sadly

    Well, you know that once the government gets involved, all bets are off. As much or more than Samsung is to blame, is Consumer Reports asking the CPSC to get involved and the CPSC themselves. They hijacked a process that could have gone a lot smoother and likely will delay the whole thing by weeks if not months. Not to mention, since there is a new battery in the phones, from a different manufacturer, I wouldn't put it past the FCC to say, "Hey, you need approval from us too." No, it shouldn't happen because the battery should have nothing to do with RF, but I don't trust govt. agencies as far as I can throw them.

    It doesn't matter who contacted the CPSC first, they are legally obligated to get involved, regardless. That's the whole point of a Safety Commission. It would have been better for Samsung to go through them originally so they could have been involved from the beginning and saved us a week or so. Either way, it is what it is and nothing we can do but wait for the resolution.

    ETA: They didn't need to be contacted, anyway. They have people reading Consumer reports (and other channels to gleen information) to stay aware of safety issues.. Daily.

    I have to agree with you I am getting that vibe too. Also China was a perfect example of no failures of the note and battery was from different manufacturer.. so in essence they could have tested that piece and moved on so we can get our devices changed to the good note 7...

    As I suggested in a different thread, maybe Samsung should move their battery production facilities to North Korea - Great Leader knows how to deal with this kind of screw-up! Those responsible will be executed by anti-aircraft cannons. Best Korea will now produce a nuclear-powered Samsung Note Un!

    Recall impacts 97% of phones in US. Stay safe out there.
    So if you're phone is part of the recall...which you have a link to verify and you do not return it then you are 100% an ***** and will be liable for any damages caused if your phone ever has a meltdown.

    Official recall will be announced at 4.15 eastern time today
    The reports of exploding batteries on Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 are "the biggest nightmare that anybody can think of in terms of phones," Sree Sreenivasan, New York City's new chief digital officer, told CNBC's "Squawk Alley" on Monday.

    "I can't think of a worse situation," Sreenivasan said. "And I think what the company has to do is be upfront about it and be very clear about how it will fix the problem, what happened and how it will work. Because they were hoping this was the best phone that's ever been released, and in fact, it's going to go down as one of the worst.... It's going to be very scary for Samsung."

    This came from the article on a CPSC announcement. Who the heck is this guy?? I think Samsung has been VERY upfront and transparent about the problem. I also don't see how this issue makes the Note 7 the "worst" phone ever released. Hate the sensationalism.

    So does this mean they already have new Note 7's ready?

    Does this mean the phones are available immediately? Wish there were more specifics. They really didn't tell us much that we didn't already know.

    People who did not trade in or exchange their Note 7 for a loaner device will have first access to devices tomorrow morning everyone else who got a loaner device will have to wait until all pre-revision Notes have been confirmed turned in.

    LOL wouldn't that be funny.
