    There will be a look up tool once the replacements start going out. If you have one that is not a replacement, it is not safe. The tool will help identify which are replacements and which are not, not distinguish between bad batches. 100% of batches that weren't made to be sold in China are bad.

    I am glad a recall has been done on all sold Note7. This way when replacements are delivered we know they are good to use.
    I took advantage of double switch from Verizon. Although I am liking the edge I am greatly missing my blue coral. Had I not been experiencing the Note these past few yrs I would probably decide to keep the edge. But I do like the stylus a b day also capability of Note 7 the edge can't perform. I appreciate Verizon for allowing us this during this time until they have replacements. My experience has been great under this tough time. Samsung will recover

    I took advantage of the double switch also. I really wanted to hold on to my blue N7 but the reality was, it wasn't worth holding on to. I now have a silver S7edge and have applied for the VR promo, $10 Samsung pay visa and $25 bill credit... So I'm actually making $134 to switch to another device until the new N7 arrives... Then I switch back😉

    Here already. Yes it's legit. It's a Samsung domain.

    http://cybersvc2.samsungcsportal.com/imei_check

    Basically checks the IMEI to verify if the phone has an SDI battery. Mine did.

    The mods will close this the second they see it. You should remove it ASAP.^^^^^
    They say it's a fake site that is stealing IMEI number for cloning.

    Well, the problem is that we have no official validation of the site... It's not verified by a service like Verisign, etc... So it could be official, could be junk.

    Just know this. N7 in America is under a recall. If you do not turn yours in and something happens you will be 100% liable for it.
    I'm also pretty sure Samsung will never fix your phone...ever if you do not swap it out under the recall.

    Just check my perfect working Note 7 that I received on the 19th and here's what I got:

    Yes or no? will I be able to use my IMEI to look up if my phone is safe?-my-note-7.jpg

    Sorry to see. What if that IMEI database is only for Malaysia? No way to be sure. If there was one for all, or if it was working properly, wouldn't they have given out the link already?

    That's fine. They can do whatever they want with the link. I've sent back the Note 7, so clone away?

    Unless you bought a phone targeted for the domestic Chinese market, it's affected... No need for a lookup

    I was under the impression that this tool was to be used to simply verify if you have a Pre September note or a post September note. The intent is not to try and distinguish what notes already sold have the good batteries.

    This tool becomes critical only once the new notes are released and you want to check if the one you are about to buy on swappa as an example is safe.

    None of the notes we currently have should pass this test.

    To clarify... Your phone will work 100% correctly until it doesn't.. and then it very much won't ... ending badly. Trade it in... do the double trade...I want my note back and will be the first in line when the new ones come out... but I did the double trade. Is it likely to happen to you.... No, not at all. But the odds are getting better by the day 70 incidents turns out to be something like 1 in 25,000.

    Plus, if you play the game right you can get a free GEAR VR.. the new model that everyone was crying about not getting free when the Note 7 was released. So in a month or so you can have it all... Note 7 (new), Gear VR, and the memory card from your first Note 7 purchase! (plus several samsung pay bonuses, and $25 bill credit from your carrier)

    Yup! Exactly what I did.... why hold on to a phone that's gotta be traded in regardless.... I submitted for the VR promo yesterday and also got another $10 Samsung pay visa..... Plus a $25 bill credit... Not to mention, all the accessories from the N7 box that I was able to keep
    Mean while, people still holding on to a phone that they're unsure, will catch fire or not... And nothing to show for it, smh

    That is most likely the intent of the page. But I think there is some wishful thinking on the part of current owners waiting on replacements...

    Samsung Rep told me the IMEI wont be able to tell you if the battery is bad. I think it will just tell you if your phone is "pre-recall" or "post-recall"

    Even if it were able to discern specific IMEI's - it'd be the same result, given that 100% of the pre-recall batteries are bad.
