    China is having phones recalled now too.
    If you're referring to the recent 2 phones, they've proven the heat came from outside sources.
    Report: China also affected by exploding Galaxy Note 7s

    I picked up my replacement yesterday and there are NO visual cues to indicate that I have a model that differs than the previous ones. It is just a brand new Note 7. I checked the IMEI and it showed that it was not impacted.

    I am a bit concerned, I have a replacement N7 (It came up as good on the IMEI checker) I am on AT&T but I don't have the green indicators nor have I received the software update that is said to add this only to the new safe devices. based on what's been posted, it seems like the N7 could remain unusable on domestic US flights for now.

    Cheers,

    The problem is, the is no safe Note 7. They will all be considered suspect until proven differently.
    Well a 3rd party battery expert tested the new battery and said it was safe

    I now have the update on my AT&T N7, it ran at 00:30 this morning (I do not believe it asked permission to install because i got logged on my phone in time to se the screen message for a second before it rebooted) it's possible i somehow hit an "Ok" prompt to allow the install but it seems unlikely. That said, I don't have a problem with the update but I want to be aware of these things.

    Cheers,
