    I didn't realize the site checker was only limited to the US. I thought it would be available for all note7s.

    FWIW, you can mail the Note 7 phone by UPS ground - they are accepting Note 7's via ground in the US - see https://www.ups.com/content/us/en/ab...5_samsung.html.

    The absence of the sticker is a major issue - airlines won't let you use that phone no matter what if they can't clearly identify as a replacement

    Those indicators are only on the boxes, so unless people start carrying their note7 around in the original packaging, they're not going to matter to anyone else.

    Then Samsung should issue a cert saying that it's a replacement phone.

    Well I have received my new replacement Note 7.

    Firstly, no blue S sticker or little black dot to indicate it is safe.
    Anyone else got any satisfaction with regards to knowing if their replacement device is TRULY safe?
    ///i wouldn't worry too much about the sticker or dot as both of those seem to be the US barcode inventory. Before people were pulling up the manufacturing dates for the battery in things like ES File Explorer. I can't recall which file they were looking at, but you should be able to find it on the board without too much trouble. From what I recall reading any of the ones listed with a manufacturer date of September 1st or later are safe.

    Do you have the green battery indicator in the status bar?

    Revised Galaxy Note7s will feature green battery indicators in the status bar
    As mentioned by myridean it apparently only shows at 100% charge, so most people probably will not ever see it unless they pull up the battery window when pulled into the charger and at 100%.

    Unfortunately the above link only applies to Note 7s bought in the US before September 15th.
    However, according to Mobile Syrup, a Canadian focused Android source, the Canadian replacements have a green battery light not white when it is fully charged as they are using the Chinese ATL batteries to show the replacement phones are not the same ones that were sold before the recall.
    New Note 7 model will have green battery indicator to tell users its safe to use | MobileSyrup.com
    Doesn't sound very useful if it only displays when the phone is charged at 100%. That's a very brief time to check it.

    FWIW, you can mail the Note 7 phone by UPS ground - they are accepting Note 7's via ground in the US - see https://www.ups.com/content/us/en/ab...5_samsung.html.
    OP is residing in Canada, so that may not be an option there.

    The absence of the sticker is a major issue - airlines won't let you use that phone no matter what if they can't clearly identify as a replacement
    To quote:
    Those indicators are only on the boxes, so unless people start carrying their note7 around in the original packaging, they're not going to matter to anyone else.
    , so unless you plan to take your box with you on your flights it doesn't matter what your box says.

    I suspect he/she is across the pond in the UK - that's where Carphone Warehouse is unless they have locations in Canada.

    Waiting for my replacement from carphone warehouse. Still got my original one which I am NOW loving. I wasn't at first as it was suffering from severe lag. The rep' at CarPhone said "We'll loan you a brand new S6 under the Note 7 replacement scheme..." So I thought "well it can't be worse than this Note 7 rubbish!" I went home and factory reset it via the boot loader ready for handing in but decided to try restoring everything and try it again...it was/is much much better. The screen would still miss out the odd letter pressed whist typing so I turned off haptic sound and vibration and now that problem has very nearly gone too. I've decided to keep it now til my replacement comes. Love this phone!

    Samsung email said no later then 21st. 1 to 2 weeks. I bet they just didn't get the emails from the upper management.

    Att and best buy told me it will arrive on 21st or after. The no later than part was disregarded by them too. Again no guarantee of colors however since best buy took my replacement pre-order I hope it works as explained to me.

    The phone so far has worked beautifully has expected but I am still very cautious in my use because of obvious possibility of this being a defect as my previous one.
    Why would you be concerned about this? The point of the replacement was to remove that defect unless you're thinking Samsung didn't check thoroughly enough.

    I'm aware that Samsung said the replacement Note 7 should be in stores by September 21st however I was wondering if the phone hit retailers early and if so which store in particular just kinda anxious to purchase it again. I purchased a Note 7 August 28th returned it two days later when the whole recall Fiasco started Still rocking with the S6.

    I'm hoping they arrive soon too. I've been scoping the AT&T forum to see when people start getting theirs, then I may call to see if they have any. Lot's of "authorized retailers" around, but I only go to AT&T corporate stores. The nearest to me are in Union Square, the Empire State Building and on Madison in the 40s. I'll give them a call starting next week.
