    New Verizon update today will give you the new green battery icons.

    I'm going to update it now and see what it does to my explosive Note 7.

    I think you're right. Either to make sure it's an organized date where all stores start doing the exchanges (yeah, right) or they demanded breathing room from the launch of the iPhone (more likely). Either way, sucks for us Verizon users and hoping they have enough replacements Wednesday.

    My local verizons aren't even busy with the iPhone clan. Wife walked in on Friday no line and got one. I think they are just saying we have until the 21st to release and that's when we will

    I wonder if the safety recall notice will keep randomly appearing on the bad Note 7s. Or maybe every time it powers up, or some other frequency to annoy the user.

    Att got them in and can't exchange till the 21st . I tried to see if I could a no recept return with my best buy att note but they couldn't find it in the system obviously and then still they said if you had receipt also they still wouldn't do it till 21st.

    That's actually a very good idea. It would push users of the old N7 to exchange without the liability of bricking the phones.

    They wont, so get ready for the barrage of complaints on that. I plan on calling Wed Morning and having my replacement shipped. This phone was an early birthday present for me, at this rate it mat turn out to be a late birthday present

    I returned my note 7 last week to the AT&T store for a full refund and no loaner. I went back in the store this morning and was gonna buy a new S7E. Clerk told me he had a whole shipment of Black Note 7's and I asked if I could buy one and he said they are selling them just like they would any other phone. Everyone was welcome to exchange or buy a new note 7. So mine has a build date of 9-9-16 made in Korea. No green Icon

    I just called, the lady at AT&T said that it'll be sometime this week, but they don't know how they're going to handle the process so they're only be handing out limited quantities. She put my name down and she's going to call me to let me know that the device has come in, but they don't know about any pre-orders or what to do after that.

    What a mess.

    I get both the N7 replacement and the ip7 plus this week. Having a hard time deciding as the iP7 is so damn smooth. Wife seems to be staying with the iP7 plus instead of getting a Note 7 replacement.

    Stopped by my local AT&T Orange County store to see what they'd say. Was on my way past there so figured why not. I said I heard they would have replacement units in this week. Guy said to check back on Wed; they hadn't received anything yet. I asked if there was some kind of list or way to be notified cause every time I call, no one answers. He gave me his card and said I could text him Wed. Guess I'll just wait till Wed to try again.

    Well I just called customer service after I reported that two stores said that although I pre-ordered it online that I couldn't bring my phone in to exchange. So customer service asked for and I gave them the addresses and phone numbers of those stores. In addition, I requested and was given the option of Sprint sending me a phone via Next Day UPS when a shipment comes into the warehouse (Lawrenceville, KY). I got an order number and I will wait it out.

    Got mine in san antonio, tx
    Called 5 different sprint stores.

    Sprint on walzem has black and silver. Sprint in the forum has all the colors. Sprint on austin hwy has them but they told me they wont do exchanges till tomorrow.

    Is it me or does this new version have an extra amount of bloatware.

    Got my replacement from the corporate Sprint store in Maple Grove, MN @11:30am today. Corporate store in Minnetonka has them as well. I have the latest updates loaaded, and there are no green battery icons. It could be that Sprint has not released this update yet. I did check my IMEI, and it is good. The manufacturing date of my Chinese made Note 7 is, 9/10/2016
