    I traded in my note 4 for the note 7. It was paid for. If there were no note 7, I'd still be using it.

    Now if I have to trade in my note 7, I have to buy A NEW phone that I never wanted.

    I don't want an s7, s7 edge, or a note 5 or an LG V20 or a pixel.

    I want the phone I paid for already that I was happy with, or I want Samsung/Verizon to support the perfectly good note 7 I am typing on right now.

    It's still too soon to tell but for now, it's a supported phone. Until Samsung officially announces otherwise. If they recall again I expect that it'll either be another swap or they'll offer some form of incentive to Note 7 owners to switch. Since the S7E is older, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see them given for free to registered N7 owners.

    Damn, that sucks. I'd be pissed too if I traded in a phone I liked for one that was about to see EOL.

    Maybe you can look at a Note 5? They're probably pretty cheap right now.

    I'm keeping my Note7 no matter what. Like some if you above, I've looked at the alternatives and I don't like them like I do with my Note7.

    I still have my Note4 thank God. If Note7 gets canned I'll either go back to my Note4 or root the Note7 and see what roms and upgrades are available from xda and the like.

    I'm in the same boat. Fortunately I still have my note 4 so back I go until I see something else worth spending my money on. I just hope Verizon gives me back my upgrade as well.

    Thank god I never listened to my wife and haven't sold my Note 4 (yet). I always like to hang on to my previous phone for a bit after an upgrade, just in case....

    Unfortunately I just recently sold my Note 4. I am still holding out hope that these replacement phones won't be recalled. My Note 7 is in the Verizon yearly upgrade program and there are no other phones I want right now.

    Note 5 is not cheap. Only $150 less than the note 7 and that's for the 32 GB not 64. I can't take the chance that my phone will catch fire while I'm asleep or in my pocket. And I wouldn't be surprised if my job banned me from bringing it to work, so I went back to the Note 5 but got a refurbished one for $499. I also ended up with about $150 in credits due to this fiasco so about $349. T-Mobile did all they could to make it as if I never even heard of the Note 7. I want the pen and the Note 5 was a great phone. Hopefully they will not discontinue the Note line and I can jump to a Note 8 next year. I still have faith in Samsung, just not this phone.

    Sold my Note 4 as well. Luckily I have a Note 5. Maybe just sit it out. The V20 isn't all that and the pixel is DOA. Why is it this hard for any phone to come close?

    I don't think they will because Samsung won't.

    Me too but I think the majority of them were problem free until they caught fire. And as I said earlier I think my job will ban me from bringing it to work as I drive a school bus for a living.

    Thinking about the N5 or the S7E if the N7 is buried for good. Still have my N2 but that's going WAYYYY backwards. Nothing else out there appeals to me.

    For those who still have their Note 4, you can have the best of both worlds and install the Note7 rom on your Note 4! I'm running the Norma V5 rom on my Note 4 atm and it's amazing. Highly recommended.

    Look, I love my Note 7 as well, but you just aren't going to have a choice but to return it. Just tonight there was an update for the Gear VR in the Note 7, that disables it so it cannot be used. This is probably just the beginning. With the first Note 7 just before the recall, there was an update that was mandatory. I believe it disabled fast charge? The options were, install now or pick a time this afternoon. That was it. Either do it now, or in a few hours, but you can't keep using it. I imagine the same thing will happen, but it may even completely shut the phone off
