    If they're cleared to sell there's no reason to hide them
    The reason: customers demanding a replacement now and getting upset. So they'll say, exchanges won't happen until the 21st and might add they don't have them in stock.

    Yes, the freshest so far. What carrier is this one?
    Can you post a picture showing that big green battery icon ?

    Thanks, that is all new hot information. Never seen that battery status icon anywhere.

    What carriers is this from and are there any special markings besides the new little black square?

    You really got one fresh off the boat.

    Is your little battery icon at the top of the display still white or green?

    Thank you, jpprice14 for all this great new information.
    I believe that you have the newest Note 7 with all the new battery options.

    I'm wondering if I should hold out another week or two before swapping mine as I would rather have one of the latest improved models like yours.

    Now we know that there are different replacement models, early ones without the latest improvements and the "Real Deal" with new icons.

    Ugh. That green battery icon looks freaking stupid. Especially on the AOD.

    I would rather look stupid and have the latest phone then smart with half baked improvements.

    Yeah, I like the green battery indicator to show that my phone is safe, but it should be optional to turn off, so I can enable it only when traveling. That is however some thing they can fix at a later point.

    Yeah i dont like it personally. I haven't found a way to turn it off either. Maybe later down the road they will send an option out in an update.

    No problem man. I was the first to pre order from my local store. I waited for them to receive them at around noon here and I was the second in the shop to receive mine.

    I thought I read an article saying that the green battery icon was only for S. Korea. I believe the article said the phones for the US would not have green battery icons.

    I am disappointed with TMobile, they are keeping up this "Wednesday the 21st" thing up. When Samsung has clearly said "no later than the 21st"....But they are not saying whether they have them in stock or not. I will be calling them this AM again.

    My Verizon store wasn't even crowded yesterday.... More workers than customers... Guess they had everyone on staff, working in anticipation of the iPhone rush that obviously didn't happen. At least, not at that location.
    Last Friday I drove past a local Best Buy in Avon, In, 10 minutes before opening. Seven blue shirts standing outside waiting for the onslaught...however, no fanboys in sight.

    Same situation here and no one answers their phones either. Best buy still clueless and I can't track the preorder for the replacement either

    You are correct. jpprice14 is in S. Korea. I don't know if anyone else caught that though.

    Well anyone with any sense would. I just can't imagine Samsung HAD to do that in order to fix the phone. I never heard reports that the normal looking icon was what was causing the explosions.

    I do not have the green icon, but my IMEI shows as clear. I chatted with Sammy support and they said it (green battery icon) would be in the next update, "within the next month".
    For a refresher, my build date is 8/31
