    LOL...not to make light of the situation, but if I didn't know any better, I'd say these Note meltdowns look almost set...hacked....or programmed to go off in different locations around the world. I guess I have watched too many CBS preceedural dramas lol

    There is clearly a defect that goes beyond the battery. Which I have suspected all along. At this point , Samsung needs to hold a press conference

    I just flew 3 flights on United mainline & express, & they advised powering off & not charging Note 7s, no distinction of original or replacement. No one asked who had one, but who wouldn't follow that advice when you are 30000 ft up? I wish they would be more diligent about it. Southwest crew would definitely be on edge about any Samsung considering their recent evacuation caused by one...hope that was just isolated incident. No problem heating up or otherwise with my replacement. Secretly suspicious about iPhone moles!

    It is very possible a signal causing runaway is being sent out. I have used that technique to jam cable tv for a 2 mile radius back in the 80's. Walk into an Apple store and see if your N7 starts getting hot. Tested mine next to my father's 6 plus and it starts to warm up quick. Now it could just be cross interference too.

    So the fact that people could triple-dip and get all those free toys from the Samsung promotions (which equates to the cost of a new phone BTW) plus $25 bill credits wasn't enough for your troubles? It was definitely worth it to me and if I had to switch to a new phone while still being able to keep those toys all the better. I for one would be sad if they discontinued and dropped support for the phone as I really love it but to expect compensation from Samsung for all the "inconvenience" is simply unrealistic. They've apologized over and over again in public press releases and spent over $1B during this whole ordeal including subsidization for loaners and other stuff for people who would "stick" with them.

    Guess people have different tolerances to do these things and expectations of what their time is really worth...seriously what else would you want? A free upgrade to a S8? A check for the phone plus your refund if you return it back to the carrier? A paid vacation to South Korea to quell any anxiety regarding their QA process? If people are really that frustrated now due to the anxiety on when and if the phone does get recalled and discontinued, just turn the phone in for a refund now and get whatever you want. It's really not that difficult...and the drama here is hilarious!
    Glad you are happy. I am not. As I stated there's nothing else out there I personally want so I'm looking at buying something (or in my case probably re-buying something).

    And for the record, I'm not being dramatic...but you sure are with talk of trips to Korea and what-not (to clarify I know you didn't say I personally am being dramatic but felt compelled to call you out since you are).

    Oh and PS...the triple dipping does NOT equal the cost of the phone. Far from it.

    In a earlier post it was mentioned "hope carriers didn't put stickers over recalled units". I wondered the same thing, because why did we have to do an update to get green battery? If the phones were new why didn't samsung do it at the factory when they were made?
    The green batt icon idea didn't surface until days before the replacement was avail. Samsung knew they were replacing phones a week before we did as replacements were in the works. Many phones were already boxed. No way they could pack a million phones within a weeks time period.

    And putting stickers over non safe phones is a ridiculous claim. Besides phones have Imei numbers. Silly accusation for sure

    Wait...people complaining on here how they're gonna jump ship and never come back to Samsung because they've been so poorly "treated" unless they get compensation is not being over-dramatic?? I'm not pointing fingers at you by the way.

    Let's see...from another thread...and it doesn't even include the 2x $25 "inconvenience" credits that Samsung is subsidizing through the carriers. So it's not close, huh?

    Any triple dippers out there? Just wondering if there are any promos that we loyal Note 7 owners have missed.

    This is all I am aware of:

    Old Note7
    --- $250/$175 - SD Card/GearFit 2 Promo
    --- $ 20 - Samsung Pay Promo
    --- $ 5 - Dunkin Donuts Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay New User Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay Referral Promo

    S7 or S7 Edge Loaner
    --- $250/$100 - SD Card/Gear VR Promo
    --- $ 10 - Samsung Pay Promo
    --- $ 5 - Dunkin Donuts Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay New User Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay Referral Promo

    New Note 7g (ie Note 7 green icon)
    --- $25 Accessories Credit from Samsung
    --- $250/$100 - SD Card/Gear VR Promo
    --- $ 10 - Samsung Pay Promo
    --- $ 5 - Dunkin Donuts Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay New User Promo
    --- $ 5 - Samsung Pay Referral Promo

    Plus you can register all three devices at Samsung Plus to count towards Silver or Gold status.

    That is up to $860 worth of goodies from a single $850 purchase. ie up to 101% return on investment

    Are we missing anything? Did you triple dip?

    Well I don't see the card as a $250 value...and some of us didn't triple dip. But at any rate, I'm upset and feel very frustrated at the situation at hand. I REALLY want to keep mine IF it's safe, and I want it to be supported properly. Sadly I fear what is going to come next week, but for today, I'm still hanging in there.

    I hope we actually learn the TRUTH of everything.

    I'm sick of hearing that some people were able to "triple dip" so I should not feel like I'm getting screwed! As usual, a few people figure out how to work the system, so us that have had to spend so much time and effort on the phone, in the store, watching the forums and news wondering what to do should just quietly take it in the rear! If I have to go through another cycle of this crap I better be getting paid for my trouble in some way or I will never buy another samsung product for my family!

    Eh, people are frustrated. Let them be. They have a right to be.

    If Samsung grows some balls and handles this correctly (after a really bad start), wounds can be healed over time.

    I said it yesterday, and I still think the best way to handled this is to remove all traces of the Note, apologize to customers, and be really transparent about the changes that are going to be made to ensure customer safety.

    For one the only one is the s7e. If I have to return my n7 then the s7e is up to the task minus the spen. At least it does the same video recording quality. May force Verizon to comp that for the trouble.

    A new Samsung Evo+ 256GB card is $189 before taxes on Amazon right now so it's pretty close.

    All I'm saying is that people shouldn't be demanding compensation for any "inconvenience" due to this issue as Samsung has been very apologetic and generous with their promotions/exchange/return policies in conjunction with the carriers.. This stuff happens in all facets of life. If your car is being recalled for a dangerous defect, would you be demanding compensation if you have to take it in to the dealer 50miles away a couple of times to get the issue fixed? At least in the Note 7 scenario, you can always get your money back if it's recalled and discontinued so there is absolutely no risk to the customer. I seriously doubt if Toyota would do that in the case of a recall.

    A simple sticker and software update is all they needed to make bad phones look good. The imei number can be set as good easily.

    S7 qualifies as well. And it's a whole lot cheaper. The promotions are still going on so you can quadruple-dip if you want now lol.

    They should find the cause and fix ASAP... and then forget the black square on the box or green battery or renaming it Note7S...

    After fixing, all new units should only be available in... WHITE!

    So that no question of is this version 1, version 2.... hold up your WHITE phone and be proud.

    And don't do this recall all phones first before selling... just make em, send them out and let the carriers do both at the same time. Cause I'm tired of waiting

    Don't give up Samsung... In 'merica we say... Third times the charm??
