    For the peeps who have a backup phone, did anyone return theirs, or plan on returning it for full refund, then a couple months later closer to Christmas shopping season when the new phones for SALE are on the shelves, will you pick one up? Just stating that because I would think there will be some big price slashes with these Note 7s now due to the reputation being recalled.

    Did anyone consider this?

    Once they put up the IMEI checker, I will. I ordered my replacement this morning. If I have a bad one per the checker I will accept the replacement and switch over to my N4 until I get the N7 replacement. ONLY if the IMEI checker says I have a bad one.

    I am holding on to my GNote 7 until I get the replacement. I watch the phone until fully charged. I keep the phone cooled at all times. Unplugged while I sleep at night. I am hoping that the new phone is released next week. I use my phone for business. Can't use the S7. I use the S-Pen all the time. Cannot use The Note 5 no MicroSD and can not use a Flash drive. Verizon will not give me a Note 4 which I turned in. That and the Note 7 are The only phones that I can use.

    Not sure how they can say "all note 7s made before september 15th are affected" and theres 3 percent not affected. Technically phones havent been for sale since well before the 15th...so where did that 3 percent come from if all were within the "affected" range?

    Excited to finally have my Note 7 again. Scary that my phone was considered to be one of the affected though.

    I just called 3 "AT&T company" stores in Miami Fl. and each gave me a different answer. One said they are getting replacement phones next week. I was clear that I had a current Note 7 and needed to do an exchange, not a new purchase. He said next week, no specific day. One store said they had no idea and the other said to check the AT&T website that it is constantly updated with Note 7 info.
    This is what is so frustrating. Everyone has a answer, but they are all different. For me, this is where Samsung has dropped the ball. Ill still stay with them because I don't like the iphone, but the lack of direct info from Samsung is not good.

    No need to gloat. Everyone assesses their personal risk differently. Risk tolerance is an individual thing governed by many different variables. Respect that and move on. Be happy! This is good news!

    I would recommend letting this information percolate through the carriers. Give it a day or two, or it will be an exercise in frustration.

    Plus iPhone launch tomorrow. What a day the retail stores will have!

    I find it odd that for weeks now, we've been told to turn our phones off and don't use them. Yet the Samsung website only gives you instructions on how to find your IMEI # by turning the phone on and looking for it.

    No amount of cooling will prevent the battery from exploding. No amount of "being careful" will prevent it from exploding.

    You CAN use an S7 but are simply CHOOSING not to. You CAN change your work flow for a few weeks to accommodate not potentially burning your house or car to the ground. You are CHOOSING not to do this.

    Even though it just came out sammys website recall page was updated and so was T-Mobile's and other carriers. It's a test to the carriers to call and see what they know. Some are rumoured to already gave replacement units i have a feeling they can't sell them until the 19th.

    Not to mention iPhone 7 comes out tomorrow do they will be slammed tomorrow on phone lines in stores with that and possibly the weekend. Right time to call and get info right now

    Every report I heard of the people said that the phone was charging hot. My phone never gets hot. I need the S-Pen. If I get the Note 5 and use flash drive. I will be audited. I get electronic signatures and documents. S7 just will not work. And yes i do not likebthe S7. I will wait for the Replacement.

    Just to reinforce this... most everything points to a defect that is not caused by the heat...just that the heat is caused by the failure. And once it starts to fail, there's nothing you can do to prevent it from going all Pompeii on you.

    97% affected -- if the site says affected it means it has the issue. Hot or not.
