    What was the process like? I'm thinking about getting the loaner today before I get the replacement note 7s to get the VR.

    Piece of cake. Although my S7 was more of a "new purchase" after returning the N7. I filled out the online info and returned my S7 4 days later to get a post-recall N7. But I think that's how they are handling "loaner" phones in most markets, though I could be wrong.

    My order status is approved for the VR, awaiting shipment. Exactly the same process as getting the 256GB card for my original N7 purchase (already received that). Hoping Samsung runs another deal on the N7, since I "bought" my second one on 9/17.

    Like Lizardchest said, same process as the N7 promo. Except this time I highlighted the qualifying device (S7edge) on my receipt because the returned N7 was also on there.. Didn't want any confusion from the processor and the terms and conditions also state that you should do this...
    Mines approved and preparing for shipping....

    That's smart to do. I did not do that I had to get receipt from T-Mobile website and download it to my phone. I uploaded it easily and it said s7 edge but I think it had note 7 return as well. Samsung says it's approved just waiting for shipment number. Last offer I did for note 7 took 17 days. I'm estimating a shipping number on Friday or Saturday and delivery by Wednesday. I can't wait

    I uploaded my Verizon pdf receipt, which showed the Note 7 exchange for S7 Edge with no problem. I didn't see anything in the terms and conditions about highlighting anything, but my submission was approved within a day. Still days waiting on shipping.

    My question is if they will catch on and ask for these promo items back when exchanging again into a new Note 7.

    I don't think so. If it's already approved, I doubt digital river is going to circle back and recheck everything.

    All the sales reps in store I've talked to have said it's all on the up-and-up to take advantage of both the N7 and S7 offers. The last guy I dealt with even recommended checking in on Samsung.com/promotions for the next week or so to see if they run another deal on the N7 that covers the purchase date of my 2nd N7. Samsung has to realize that they would build a lot of goodwill by letting N7 owners to take advantage of any and all deals.

    That's kind of my thinking. I did look over the terms and conditions to check for anything like this. I didn't see anything about refunds/exchanges period. Since it's not in there, then it should to be on the up and up to take advantage of it whether they like it or not.

    I did my *return* on 9/10, and *purchased* an S7 (with an extended no hassle return window) on the same trip. Called store on 9/17 and they said they had "stock for replacements, but not new sales." I explained my situation (regarding 9/10 transactions) and he said I qualified for the "exchange."

    Hi guys, just got my loaner delivered today. Are the 256 SDs still part of the promo? Not yet sold on VR and considering giving away or reselling the SD. Is VR all that?

    Sorry, I can't give you a good answer. I did my return before replacements were available. Your carrier will have to tell you what, if any, charges there would be. Get anything they say in writing! Can't stress that enough!

    Personally, I don't think so. I was expecting a 4k type screen, and it's been described as a screen door effect which from what I understand might be a technically INCORRECT term, but it's the best way to describe it. You feel like you are looking through a screen door for a lot of the content. And I, unfortunately, seem to get very sick from the interactive content. Within mere minutes of donning the contraption and trying to move around, I'm getting nauseous and sweaty/clammy. However I do like watching "2D" type things. Such as the Netflix app when you feel like you are sitting in a movie theater and watching a big screen. And I watched a Gordon Ramsey one where he and his daughter were making breakfast together. I was able to look around and "see" his kitchen/living room but I couldn't actually "move". So for me, I think I just get "seasick" from moving. It's a shame because seems like it would be a lot of fun, but I think Tim Cook may be right that AR (augmented reality) might be more where the future is at since you are then in the real world and the content is coming to your world, as opposed to you immersing yourself in its world...if that made ANY sense at all (which it probably didn't). It IS neat...don't get me wrong. And I'm glad I experienced it. But I don't feel pressed to get one that's compatible with the Note 7 (I got one to work with the Galaxy S7).

    Being on Verizon, I'm having to cross my fingers. On all the official writing, the options are a J series loaner (or comparable model if the J's are out), or regular single S7/Edge exchange. Nowhere does it say the S7/Edges is allowed as a loaner or for double exchange. Ok, fine, except many Verizon stores are apparently allowing S7/Edges as loaners, mine included.

    They process the initial exchange as normal while also waiving the restocking fee. Now to wait until time for the second exchange to see if they honour their verbal words.

    Why is everyone talking about this? The VR that works with the s7 edge will not work with the note 7. The s7 edge is a micro SD connector and the N7 is a C connector. So if you go back to the Note 7 the VR won't work for you.

    The new VR is the one in the promotion and it works with Note 7, S7, S7 edge, Note 5, S6 and S6 edge.

    Unless I'm reading that wrong, we should still be able to make good on it, just having to call them to swap the device info to access the bonus content. Even if that is closed, you still get the VR, minus the free downloads.

    Im more saying that once I call them, I won't be able to do this a 3rd time since I'll have my note 7 replacement imei in place of the s7edge. Was hoping to get some more SD cards with my new purchase. Oh well.

    You guys are really upset that the loaner free VR scam is in jeopardy of not working?

    Lol. Samsung.com customers are still sitting in the dark with no loaner, no exchange program, no communication, nothing. The defective Note 7's are still in our posessions. We literally cannot get rid of them and have absolutely no idea when/if we will be able to replace them.

    You all are so lucky. No complaining.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure Samsung purposely ran this promo to keep Samsung users. Even in the approval email they sent out they obviously anticipated the note 7 users with s7 loaners to take advantage. It basically says once you turn the s7/s7 edge loaner back in and get your new note 7, call Samsung promotions and give them the new IMEI number so you can download the bonus VR content to your new note 7. Of course that's not verbatim but i summed it up. I can't see any other reason Samsung would include that in the email if they didn't want the s7 loaner phones included in the promotion

    I agree with the person who said it was about the vr content. It say you have until 2-2017 to use the voucher at the ocular store and if the store doesn't recognize the device because it may be replaced between now and then, you have to call and give the new info.

    I don't think this closes any loop holes. I actually don't think it's a loop hole at all. I got the idea to do this from the rep at samsung. When I got the original note7 and lost my $20 when i had to do a factory reset. I called Samsung pay promotions and the rep was awesome. He even called me a few days later to see if i got it back. By then the recall had started. At the end of the call he said, don't forget the promotion only states you need a new galaxy phone. So when you get the new phone make sure you get each promo again.

    I just feel it's good will for those put thru this.

    As for calling this a scam, hardly. The company would have had their lawyers go through everything and write up the terms of the promotions. Even in the latest emails they are saying it's possible to get the downloads on exchanged devices. I read through all the info and nowhere does it say this shouldn't apply to double exchanged phones. It's not even implied, but it is implied they will be ok with it. So no, I'm not trying to scam them and break the rules. If they do come back later and change the rules to block the free downloads, so be it.
