    I've just shut mine off. I'm going to wait to hear from Samsung and CPSC. But I'm thinking more and more it's going to be a return for me.
    I have turned mine off as well, I have a family and its just not worth it. Wait and see what happens in the next few days.

    I just hope we can drag this out till the S8 comes out at least. The problem we have as android users who like the top of the line phones is the fact there is nothing better on the market. So if we give this one back then we either take a step back with a older phone like the S7 which for me is no option. If i switch to a different phone and use my upgrade for it and spend money on it then the phone needs to be current plus good. The new Iphone is boring as i have the 6 plus sitting here and it is boring. The biggest problem is nothing out there matches the note 7 in what it can do besides catch on fire.

    Then I'm going to switch back to my iPhone 6s Plus until Samsung makes the next official move, either denouncing and disproving these latest claims deeming the phone safe to use or issues another recall, perhaps a full recall and EOS/EOL of the device.
    Given that text message, I'm not sure why anyone would trust Samsung at this point.

    There is the S7 edge which is still a nice phone minus spen and slightly smaller screen. The next option would be the V20 but lg is charging a premium for it now especially after this Note 7 ordeal. I like the water resistance though so this and the Iphone is basically only only choices right now.

    The LG phone seems like a downgrade and the S7 for me is old. I do not like to get a phone even if it has only been out 6 months. I like new just hit the market phones and the other ones coming out do not thrill me. I have 2 note 7's here right now LOL i have the replacement which just came and the old 1 which i have 12 more days to send back. So ill hold onto them and see what shakes out next week. But i really would like to keep my so called safe Note 7. I want to know how this passed our protection agency after the 1st recall.

    All corporations lie. Samsung is no different. Apple swears by their environmentally friendly approach, and then they turn around and single handedly removes the headphone jack and practically asks their customers to throw away the old headphones because they are "inferior" and use "ancient technology", because you know "courage". They are all the sine. Keep costs low, and keep revenue growing. Profit, profit. They'd sell their worn mother if it would give them a couple of points boost in earnings. Samsung messed up badly, but don't kid yourselves that any other corporation is any better.
    What the hell does Apple changing the headphone jack (it wasn't removed, it's now a lightning headphone jack instead of the standard 3.5 mm version) have to do with Sammy putting people at risk for fire? They screwed up once, now are screwing big time. They may have put Chinese users at risk. According to The Verge, they kept quiet about the Tuesday Kentucky fire days before the fire on the Kentucky plane. What would have happened had the plane taken off? Samsung needs to be smacked and smacked fast. As soon as humanly possible, the CPSC should institute a 2nd recall with all Note 7s retuned and no third shot being available. There should be fines and the responsible parties punished. Civil and criminal cases should be brought, if possible.

    Take off the blinders: At this point, other corps are better. And obviously smarter.

    The Nicolasville guy had me right up until he wouldn't let Samsung have the phone to investigate. Mmm, why not? I am not saying it may not have happened, but that is a big red flag to me.
    If he's considering taking legal action, why would he hand over the biggest piece of evidence ? I fully understand why he didn't hand over the phone, I'm struggling with the whole text message thing though.

    I don't know. I don't ever really trust any big corporation, but I also know personally one too many people who have run scams on various companies. I am getting tired of the whole thing. I love the phone, it isn't getting warm at all, and neither did my first one. But one more report and I may have to do something.Nothing new out there I want. Maybe back to my first idea, a Note 5, if Verizon has a 64 gb one.

    Apple paid the media off. Next time Samsung needs to remember to do that.

    Now for the serious people, I don't know that Apple paid the media off, but makes sense
    Don't tell me you actually believe that?

    I'm sure they tried... but what I'd like to know is how many
    burning new Note 7 owners accepted money or other
    considerations to keep quiet? Is that even legal?

    not sure if this belongs in this thread? this is like the
    4th or the 5th fire documented, involving replacement
    Note 7 that has the supposedly "safe" battery inside.

    another replacement Note 7 that allegedly went up in
    smoke. this time at a Burger King in South Korea.
    (yes, where Samsung is from) The BK employee in
    this video wore oven mitts and tried to get the burning
    Note 7 out of the store.

    Exactly... you have so many people here ready to accuse the VICTIMS here of trickery... how about being the VICTIM and you have a BIG SAMSUNG rush over ASAP and say, "Let us hold the phone." and luckily he didn't cause from that text who knows where that phone would have disappeared and we were lucky to see the news article. They wanted that guy in China's phone and he refused too and went to the press.
    Victims don't need to do trickery. They could have damaged the phone and want to hide it. Samsung needs access to the phone to investigate it. Why would someone want to impede Samsung from investigating the issue? Samsung wouldn't bury a systemic issue because anyone with a brain would know that if there is a systemic issue then they need to deal with it. The only way in which Samsung would want to hide it is if there is no risk to other phones, and if there isn't a risk to other people why would you want to make them needlessly afraid exactly?

    Maybe it's because I'm actually a Samsung fanboy or something, but I'm not seeing a principal-agent dilemma here, Samsung's interests are intrinsically aligned with those of their consumers, aren't they?

    I can fully understand the numerous folks on this thread who have powered down their Notes ............ I get it !!!!!

    Since this 2nd round of issues came to light late last week my Note had worked perfectly with sign of warmth or concern. Am I a bit concerned ???

    Of course ...... I stay cogizant to any sign of heat and will power it down IF I felt it was unsafe to continue to use my Note. I still have my S6 Edge+ in one my bedroom drawers that I can easily use ?

    I'm sorry to say but the past few days kinda reminds me of the stories of those witch hunts in whatever Mass town ( Salem ? sorry too tired to google right now ).

    Folks persecuted and condemend to death because he or she " says " they're a witch or evil ???

    I'm going to continue using and honestly ENJOYING my Note ......... albeit cautiously for now and will see how this plays out this week

    Maybe heating up when not in use is a software issue. Very possible it could be running like wildfire in the background. Then again in is possible the slightest bend to the device breaks the battery open. Quit sitting on your phones people.

    seriously... there is no correlation here... comparing apple's taking away an headphone jack (??) to a Samsung rep texting of trying to slow down a victim... which he is because besides just a exploded phone he had suffered a medical issue out of this... to compare the two is not right. One is marketing strategy that does no harm, the other is a deceptive strategy to skirt a safety/legal issue.

    You know rumor mill has the S8 losing the headphone jack too.... then will you be irate at samsung?

    Honestly... if they were "brave" to remove the jack with the Note 7... they probably would have had more room to really fit the battery properly and we wouldnt be where we are?

    Ending the note with a little humor... but it's true

    What the hell does Apple changing the headphone jack (it wasn't removed, it's now a lightning headphone jack instead of the standard 3.5 mm version) have to do with Sammy putting people at risk for fire?

    I already got my replacement units a few weeks ago and actually thought I could finally use this phone just like any other of the countless phones I've used in the past: Without any worries or second thoughts. Now reports of new accidents with actually replaced (and as such, "safe") units starting to spread, even on local radio stations they had those cases in the news. Today I already got into a heavy argument with my girlfriend about the future of this phone in our household and honestly I am having a hard time not agreeing with her, I contacted Samsung asking for options if they'd take the phone back. Even at my workplace people again eyeing me (or better the phone) carefully, I wouldn't be surprised if they'd also issue a ban of using this device at work and honestly I again can't really blame them.

    Having said that, I find that text message quite awkward, why would that Samsung guy text his supervisor (or whoever) such a message instead of mailing it? I am also having a hard time believing the Samsung employee sent this text to the victim by accident, it simply seems suspicious. Remember that iPhone 5(?) prototype which an Apple employee "forgot" in that bar before release, I am pretty sure that was no accident either and it still looks rather awkward. In any case, I wouldn't be surprised if that text was actually a fake. I am also sure there could be some fake accidents with replaced units out there, but not all of them. Samsung has to react fast and ensure the safety of the people who spend a whole bunch of money to get this flagship device.

    Last but not least: My replacement device has been produced on August 31st, just two days before Samsung admitted any problems or announced a recall. Some units, faulty ones, were produced just a few days earlier, like Aug 25th. What have they *really* changed in those few days to ensure the new batch is actually safe?

    I've been doing a lot of flying the last month or so, and every single pre-board message is capped off with the "You cannot use or charge a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on this flight" (or similar wording). And they say it more than once. But yesterday - on a Delta flight from Detroit to Newark - was the first time I heard them add, "Including any replacement Note 7s." Ouch. I cannot imagine the embarrassment felt by a Samsung executive or other employee having to travel commercial and hear that before every flight.
