    Production issues...at least you know they are not rushing builds plus the other half of the customers no longer want the device or have switched...shouldn't be too many issues getting a replacement unless you deal with incompetent T-Mobile and "Sprint" reps....less than 20 people on T-Mobile actually have replacements

    Will be 2 more ridiculous weeks before Best Buy gets my replacement in from today the 20th. My carrier (AT&T) wants nothing to do with me since I bought it with BB already fought that battle. Never again Samsung. Next year going with something else.

    I guess I should be glad I returned it for an S7 Edge then.

    With a lot of angry people not being able to get a replacement soon, I am betting some people will instead demand a refund, or just get a different phone.

    So 500,000 phones might be enough to take care of the rest of the people, the loyal and patient N7 owners who are willing to wait for their replacement.

    Super Glad I got my Note 7 today.
    I can't say about how much I like my 1st note.
    Nothing but a note for me now.

    Really like this Note 7.

    Wow. Earlier today I used the "Check In-Store Availability" tool on VZW's site. Searched a 50 mile radius from me. It found 36 stores, all but two had Note 7's available. Just did it again and 17 have none. I know most stores, as well as VZW's site, were selling them in general, not just replacing previously purchased N7's . So much for taking care of the Note 7 owners first.

    I'm still on my original note 7, now that replacements are available it makes me nervous to stay with this one, even with no issues.
    Sprint please hurry up and deliver my safe note 7

    Just checked availablebility in my area via veriozonwireless.com and my store doesn't have any in stock of course they may have forgotten to update. If I go to my store tomorrow and they don't have the replacements I'm keeping mine for another 10 days and if they don't have them by the 30th swap to an S7 Edge till they get the replacements.

    We have until the 30th to exchange our Note 7s. I can wait 10 more days. Mine hasn't caught fire yet and I doubt it will.

    Mine was doing replacement today but not for one's with past due balances. I have to pay mine before I can get a replacement which will be next Tuesday then knowing my luck they won't have my blue then.

    If there will be issues with verizon getting these in stores then they should extend their recall time. Next batch may not hit stores till October 28th.

    What recall time... Samsung and the carriers are now required to forever honor the recall... that part of the CPSC involment. There was a 9/30 date tossed around, but of all of the official releases... Samsung's, and AT&T... none of them list a date of any kind for cut offs.

    I didn't think they were suppose to issue out the replacements till September 21st tomorrow.
    The statment said that replacement devices would be available "NO LATER THAN 9/21" It said nothing about not doing them before 9/21.
