    I just tried to use it and there was a mini update. When I put the headset on, found out oculus no longer usable with the Note 7. I was going to hold out turning it in but now I'm not sure what to do.

    Get rid of it while you can. It's only going to get worse.

    Yup, had no choice but to accept the update and there's a nice message saying safety first and Note7 VR use has been disabled/non compatible

    Edit: I hate Samsung right about now!!!!! Two months of hell with their BS

    That was quick... and so it begins... What do you expect? For them to allow people to continue using a device that potentially blows up in people's eyes???

    It should be my choice. A simple warning message saying something like "hey stupid, these phones can spontaneously combust, are u sure u wanna put it so close to tour face?" Would suffice.

    Luckily i still have my note 5 but I'm freaking pissed anyway! I guess I'm off to download oculus on my note 5 while I plot which phone to replace my note 7 with.

    So how do we get money back on this junk then? I got note 7 from one store and gear from another

    Yeah... with all the other crap and bad press that Samsung is now dealing with, I'm pretty certain they are willing to cut their losses here on prohibiting people from potentially harming themselves even worse...

    They been very lucky to date, in that no one appears to have been seriously burned - if it were to come out that someone were suddenly blinded by an exploding N7 - the estimated $5B they are potentially losing on these recalls would be minuscule ... they'd might as well shutdown if that were to happen...

    I'm a bit surprised they haven't stopped the S7E with some similar reports out there.... at this point Samsung needs to be very careful what they do for the foreseeable future....

    Wow think I'm kind of done with the N7 now. My gear VR is waiting for me at home. Never got the chance to use it. That's pretty much confirmed a recall for this device and V2 Note 7 is dead.

    I like the look of the V20 but no gear VR support and due to lack of AMOLED it's doubtful to get daydream. Either a pixel or an S7 Edge. Gear VR will work with that at least and Google Daydream looks like it might rival the gear VR

    Just another Samsung item I have to return. Wife bought one weeks ago before the replacement Note 7 VR Freebie. I Hope the 256GB SD card isn't defective, at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if it gobbled my files.

    Yeah, it sucks. Mine was delivered today, spent about an hour playing with it. Put it away since I had errands to do, decided to try it again and boom, update.

    This whole thing is frustrating to say the least. Add this to having to clean up after the hurricane and no internet still at the house with no word from time Warner. At least I am glad I still have unlimited data with Verizon.

    Maybe this was the problem. Gear VR Innovator Edition used to make my Note 4 super hot to the point of making the phone unusable.
    Have heard people advising to disable VR and Occulus apps with Package Disabler Pro for better performance so….

    Quick question. For those who held onto recalled units even after CPSC official recall or even through the green/white battery indicator.

    Did the oculus services or message pop-up on previous units? I heard when the early reports came in Oculus had a warning message when using the app.

    Because I'm still using mine right now and it's not on fire or hot to the touch.

    Because Samsung just barely released the official word to stop using the phone this evening. I have a pregnant wife and no sim card for my old Note 4 at the moment. I need to be able to speak to my wife if she needs something in an emergency. Don't be so ridiculous.

    Neither were the people's whose phones caught on fire...until they caught on fire.
