    I setup a pattern for my security...when my phone is re-booted, it now asks for the pattern, takes about 10 seconds to boot (there is a lock logo is on the screen) and then is ready for use....I don't remember it doing that on the launch day Note 7's
    Turn off encryption. I had the same thing on my Active.
    I cant find where to turn it off on the N7.

    He/she wouldn't have to turn off encryption, just secure startup

    What I'm doing is transferring my stuff from my current note 7 to the new one via smart switch while I'm at the verizon store tomorrow.
    T-Mobile wouldn't allow that. The government agency that got in on the recall told them, "all recalled phones must be powered off at all times in the store"! They said they can't transfer your stuff and you can't have the old phone on to do it yourself. Has to be from a backup source.

    There seems to be a slight cosmetic defect with my replacement Note 7. It's very difficult to see in photos so I'll just try to describe it.

    The top-left and bottom-right corners seem to have a thin, faint layer of gold paint where the blue coral glass meets the gold metal. It's only showing up on the opposite corners mentioned, so I'm not sure if all the replacements in that color have this (i.e. by design) or if it's a defect. I bet many wouldn't even notice it, but I could swear it wasn't the case with my original (recalled) blue Note 7.

    What? There was a guy at my Verizon store doing Smart Switch between his old and new Note7 with no issue. I factory reset mine in the store in front of them before turning it in with zero issues.

    I have a Sprint device and I am noticing very slow charging even when set to fast charge. Also, it doesn't vibrate when I receive text messages.

    The setting is turned on.

    Thanks for the heads up! How did you handle the original return for that issue?
    For that return, I just happened to have returned it and got it replaced the day before the recall...

    Finally got my Note 7 swapped out. Had no issues with my "explosive" model. One thing I have noticed on this replacement is that even with my going into setting -> Sounds and vibrations -> notification sounds -> Message notifications, change that to a new tone, it still has my messages on the Message+ app the same as my emails. Really annoying. Did the same thing on the explosive one and it worked great. Been trying for 2 days now. I can't find a work around. No setting in the actual app. Guess I will have to change to a new app that has an option to change within the app. I like using the Message+ because Verizon backs them up on the app.

    Anyone else having the same issue? It did the system update when I picked it up on Tuesday so it is the newest version.

    If you go to settings then sounds then notification sounds you will be led here where you can change all your sounds and even different sounds for each email account

    Appreciate the advice. Assuming you are not on Verizon, mine only has the three options, email is not one of them.

    Make sure you use the new SIM card that came with device...do a factory reset and avoid setting up with smart switch or samsung cloud
    Out of curiosity, why the new sim? I did the master reset already which I put in my comments. As well, it was lagging before I even put anything on the phone and it's still lagging now.

    The antenna bands are not as dark as my old one.
    It doesn't show up too good in the picture, much more noticeable in person.
    Not a big deal, it just doesn't blend in as good now.

    New top, old bottom.

    That is inaccurate. I sat in the store, still using my old one on "wireless" while all my data transferred over. After it was done, I then master reset the phone and cleared all the data...

    My battery life seems worse on my replacement phone. I charged my phone to 100% today and as soon as i turned the phone back on it dropped to 99%. I made 2 calls and setup Samsung pay and downloaded and setup hiya and now my battery sits at 87%. My first note would have been at 90 to 92% So a slight decrease in charge and usage

    Is your setup and the application running the same on the replacement as it was on the original N7? If so, this stinks but could get better with a few charge-discharge cycles.

    Been using the phone all day for the Mobile Hot Spot for my laptop. It just took 1 hour 5 min to charge from 32 to 100 while continuing to use the Hotspot.

    This was only the 2nd charge. The first was right out of the box. I left the phone off and it took 1 hr 20 min to go from 50 to 100. So it seems to be settling in ok. Oh and minimal warmth during the whole time both times.

    Peace. Alan

    May not be inaccurate. Some personnel may simply ignore what they've been told for the sake of better customer service.
