    Got my new Note 7 today at the corporate Verizon store. I was told I had to go there since I got the phone from Verizon.com. The had 7 in stock at 6pm all black.

    5 minutes after being turned on, there was a Samsung update that changed my battery to green.

    FINALLY have my phone back!!!!!

    Just checked, phone date is 9/1/16
    Why am I Not getting that update? I just put the replacement phone on the charger maybe 9 minutes ago.

    Just got my replacement from (city omitted to protect the guilty) corporate store. Pain in the butt as all VZW transactions are, but while i was stuck there for an hour and forty minutes, at least I had time to do smart switch and transfer all my apps settings and files.

    Then, just as I was leaving, the manager had my NEW phone in HER hand as I was handing her my old, WIPED phone. She then said "Oh no, I just wiped this one!"

    Everything from August 19 to now lost.

    Oh and the green battery icon is disgusting looking, like a fly puked on my notification panel
    I might be one of the few that likes the green gauge, but use the material black theme. I think they are trying to make it like the Android icon.

    Got my ATT replacement today. Seems a little faster but probably really not. ATT doesn't have the green battery. That's fine but if I have to fly how do I prove that I have a safe Note 7?

    So its true the replacement phones are the black boxes the ones I seen on reviews all over Youtube. Coming from China and not Korea....Nice.
    Does it depend on Carrier?
    I have AT&T, box is blue and mine says from KOREA.

    This is going to sound crazy but I wonder if I'll have a false sense of battery if it's always green even when down to 3%.

    Just got back from Best Buy and it will be 2 more weeks (today the 20th) before I see a replacement Note 7. Never again Samsung. Next year moving onto something else. Won't be an Iphone but some other device and brand for sure. You guys have the best TVs hands down of which I have 2. You just lost a phone customer.

    I just read online that the green battery indicator does NOT come out of the box. I think you just have to wait until your phone gets the update to change the color.

    Have you tried going directly through your carrier?

    Yes they (AT&T) want nothing to do with me since I bought it through Best Buy and the only reason I did that was to get the 256gb Sd card on the spot. I don't blame them I blame Samsung. 2 more weeks is bs.

    Has anyone with a replacement noticed the screen doesn't go all the way to the edge anymore. Just realized my new note has the gold border around the side of the edges.

    Don't blame Samsung when clearly this is Best Buy's fault. Seems they are handling it very poorly as well as Sprint.

    Also here in korea with KT Telecom. We had to return all accessories that came with the phone but my carrier told me after Samsung received my original phone they are sending out two of everything that came with the kit.

    Stopped at Verizon corporate store in Boise,ID on Milwaukee after donating platelets this afternoon, just hoping to get on a list.
    They had stock including 6 in blue, so i told the greeter that I only had the phone, was not going to wait 35 minutes for my turn if i needed everything. she said no problem.

    My turn came and the guy was going to turn me away since no box and stuff but his manager said it was ok. I left with only the phone, no paperwork or anything else, not even the box but at least I have a phone instead of using my Note 2!
    My smart switch to PC from about 10 days ago is done restoring and my phone looks ready to go!

    I had hoped to leave with the box and an extra charger for all the hassle but whatever just hoping the Samsung $25 credit shows up...

    My wife returned just my phone. They held the box for 2 days for me as I couldn't get back until this morning. Just went and swapped boxes.

    Got my replacement Note 7 from the local AT&T store today. It feels so good to be back! There were quite a few others there who were picking up replacements, 2 of which are coming from the iPhone 7 just as I was. I guess they also gave it a try and realized how much better the Note was/is.

    Time to load her up!

    Cool, thanks! Wow if true I wonder if it was to address all the reports of cracked screens when dropped at two inches!

    I had the same problem.
    I bought my phone at Best Buy

    But what increased my problem was I paid my note off.
    So Best Buy couldn't sell me a new phone unless I wanted to pay for it.
    And At&T couldn't do nothing because I bought it at Best Buy.

    Had to get it reversed. and the money put back on my credit card.

    At&t said they only provide the wireless service to the phones.
    They don't make them.
    Samsung does.
    And the money on the next plan goes to Samsung.

    And you need to get your phone replaced where you bought it.
    Best Buy,
    Sams
    Target
    Or where ever.

    Might make you think next time where you buy your phone.

    Hate everybody had to go threw this. But things happen.
