    How was the note 7 rushed? 12 months isn't rushed to me
    They were reportedly trying to get to the market early because of reports that the iPhone 7 would not be as "grand" as previous years might have been.

    Is it me, or is it weird that The Verge is the one repeatedly breaking these "burning Note 7" stories?

    Yah it's interesting but they're fairly well known by the techie group which is a chunk of the folks that currently own Note 7's i.e., early adopters. So I'm not surprised that the Verge is breaking a lot of these...

    I'd constantly be searching note 7 fire as this is a good money making web revenue. You've seen some they post as alleged but hey look at the the tiny people we have here reposting and panicking. Even some don't even own a note 7 lol.

    Just can't defend Samsung anymore. The Note 7 was by far my favorite phone of all time but they are clearly clueless as to what is causing the fires. Thank you Samsung, you lost me and my wife as customers as we went with the iPhone 7 plus now.

    Time to completely get rid of the Note name. Next year, call it the S8 pro or something. The Note name is forever tarnished. And a lot of people need to be fired.

    And if I'm not mistaken, this year's version was out at least two weeks earlier than last year's version. Not a lot of time, but given the additions and the believable story you posted above, it was rushed. Clearly given all the mess happening now.

    Seems as though The Verge is where the people have been sending their information.

    I know the Southwest flight was covered live by the local news and local newspaper (online). The Verge has been aggressive about contacting Note 7 victims directly. And I think at least one contacted the site after hearing about the earlier fires.

    Note 7 is dead. T-Mobile will be announcing shortly that it's no longer available or supported, Verizon has halted sales internally and will have official word by Tuesday, Best Buy is not to sell any or provide replacement Note 7s starting tomorrow. Samsung has advised Aussie carrier Telestra they will not be getting anymore Note 7 phones.

    Samsung is getting everyone ready for another global recall. Back up your stuff, shut it off.

    Wow! I actually called T-mobile today and they seemed pretty willing to let me turn it in. I just wish they had something I really wanted. They apparently no longer carry the HTC 10, I may just buy one directly from HTC at this point.

    And there you go. The official end of the Note 7.

    Wow. This whole Note 7 release has been a joke. I'm literally just shaking my head over this whole thing.

    Has there even been a phone in the past where this has happened?

    Do not buy an HTC 10 to use on T-Mobile. I can't tell you more than there are technical reasons that T-mobile has yet to address.

    Edit: that sounds scary. The 10 is safe on T-mo (phone is safe anywhere) but depending on your location, none of the advanced features will work because of network "issues"

    Don't know if this was posted already, but AT&T told me today that they will no longer offer the Note 7. I exchanged mine today for the S 7 Edge. I really loved the Note 7, but I got tired of all the aggravation relating to the phone. Hopefully, all the issues will be completely ironed out for a new Note 8 or something.

    The Verge has a unique weekend strategy. Most sites that have a central office and the organization of a "regular" media company treat weekends like most of those regular companies do. For example, it just being me from 6 am Saturday until 6 am Monday. The Verge carries a complete staff and uses a normal scheduling routine.

    I'm here in case something happens that needs to be addressed. they have people looking for things to post about. They're really good at it, and it works well for them, partly because they are so good it wouldn't pay for anyone else to spend the money and have a full staff 7 days a week.

    Credit to the guys and gals at the verge who have to actually work on the weekend when they're working on the weekend. That would suck :P

    If Minnesota and Kentucky have sealed my decision, this recent decision by carriers and retailers have put a huge strip of super tape around that sealed lid.

    I am returning mine asap. Doing an FDR and backing it up before shutting it down for the last time.

    He's probably well connected with some well placed sources.

    So crazy. Your first Samsung in years , you actually liked it, and then this happens. Coupled with your G4 issues, my God you deserve a reliable phone for once!
