    I'm back in stride again. So glad to have my Note 7 back. The temporary S7 Active was a very good phone, just not for me. The AT&T store salespeople did a fine job and gave me 0 hassle. It was AT&T who made a simple exchange a THREE hour process. In the end though I walked away with my Note in the case I saved from the first purchase. Happy.

    I just finished a long post and realized I wasnt signed in. I'll start again.! Was so tired after being up all night setting it up my eyes are crossing. Yes, I got there barefoot and no, I'm not a bag lady. Just a barefoot kind 'a girl.. made them laugh though! & Came home with my beautiful silver note. Seems Battery life is better. I'm looking to see if any changes have been made. Maybe one so far. the battery download showed up almost immediately. Cute little critter..like a badge of courage under fire♨ Today a lot of apps were updated again. One was Samsung notes. Thought they might have brought back the link to action memo but not yet. It's great not having the battery issue in the back if my mind I never did stop using mine. But really, what a relief it's over. Next mission is searching for a screen protector that stays on. If anyone know of one - PLEASE!!!!! I'm going back to playing, will see if I can find anything I haven't that's different. And I'll meet you same place, ??? time tonight😊

    Phone swapped this morning. Went to the "Largest Verizon Store in the US" (Chicago, IL) right at opening (10 am). In & out in about a half a hour. Everybody knew what to do, wasn't charged any fees, pleasant sales associates, wasn't crowded. Why can't other Corporate stores be like this one (I know this is a showcase store, but still...). I no longer have a "Grenade". Drama now over, I can use my Fast Wireless Charger again without worry.

    Hmmm... O.K., so here's what I dug up and you're right!

    "To get the most out of a lithium-ion battery, you should try to keep it north of 50 percent as much as possible. For the most part, going from all the way full to all the way empty won't help; in fact, it'll do a little damage if you do it too often. That said, it's smart to do one full discharge about once a month for "calibration," but don't do it all the time. Running the whole gamut on a regular basis won't make your battery explode or anything, but it will shorten its lifespan."

    ...so there's my "once this month" from very low to full! :-) Thanks for pointing that out though!

    It seems like a lot of people are just learning about it as some phones became available.
    Hard to believe the word at different places are a little confused.

    But its a great experience to get our hands on new Note 7's.
    Well worth the wait.

    Know waiting is a pain in the ***.
    And worrysome.
    But if this is the worst thing that happens in your life.
    It ain't that bad.
    Even though it will keep you up at nite worrying about it.

    Got mine (replacement) earlier . The guy took my phone and made sure I took my accessories, including the sPen, and then just handed me a phone in a new box! Ended up grabbing a black one, loved my silver, but there were too many people there that seemed to care too much about their color, I ended up giving mine up as quantities of silver were really limited, and there was a guy there who wasn't going to get his replaced....the black is pretty enough for me and bey.. I'll have a silver sPen to remember it by!

    Also ended up picking up a replacement for my wife's aging Gs5, she got an S7 and hasn't out it down since I gave it to her.

    Glad my store wasn't shy about doing replacements prior to the 21st...I had a flight today and had 0 problems once I showed the TSA guy I had the little green icon (took my replacement receipt too just in case). Heard a couple of horror stories about stores in Atlanta selling phones instead of exchanging them...and some outright refusing to exchange phones and sending people packing back to Best Buy or Samsung....Guess I have a really good corporate store!

    My old note 7 was silver titanium.
    I had wanted the Blue so on the replacement I preordered the Blue.
    When she opened the box and laid the blue down by the Silver titanium.
    I said Dang, I didn't realize the titanium was such a nice looking phone next to the Blue.
    I'm gonna miss my old silver phone.

    I previously had Silver as well and now have Blue. I had opted for Silver initially since I did not get the chance to see Blue first to get a look at it and did not want to blind order it and now that I have seen it and had a chance to get it, I did as I like it but the Silver is extremely SHARP looking. But I like the unique look of the Blue and find it quite beautiful so I am very happy, and in the spirit of this thread, very thrilled to have the Note 7 back in my hands.

    Are you using TouchWiz or a launcher? On nova launcher you long press the icon then a menu with edit comes up to change the name. I tried it on TouchWiz, but it didn't work.

    So...and this is just me guessing here, forgive me if I'm off base...you're using the Samsung browser right?

    In that case, you need to rename your bookmark before creating the shortcut. Go into bookmarks...long press the bookmark you want to rename, then go click the three verticals dots top right in the window, click edit and then rename your bookmark. Now that you e done that, you can create your shortcut and the name should be consistent!
