    If you're on Verizon, especially when another promotion happens, probably Black Friday.

    Drama effect? Are you kidding? Samsung has almost reached the threshold where the replacement units are in the same position as the original units. It is actual drama, not perceived. If there are any more replacement units defective, there are only 2 choices-second recall or discontinue the N7. If the latter is done, you can guarantee there will be a worldwide disabling.

    How many people are realistically going to stick it out with a second recall?
    Lord have mercy. Reading is fundamental. No, I am sorry comprehension is fundamental. "Drama effect" for whoever is saying that Samsung will disable the phone remotely. Please re-read my post. Not for the whole Note 7 catching fire or not, or who is sticking with it, keeping it or not.
    Ladies and gents I am done. Have a great night....

    I wished it were unlocked.

    Otherwise, Z Play.

    If this was going to happen that we would have to give up out phones...... what do you guys suggest as an alternative? I was thinking of going back to a Note 5. Any suggestions would help. Thank you.

    24/7 customer care for the Pixel line may sway a few between the two devices mentioned by the op.

    Whatever suits your needs and budget. I will just have to let my replacement Note 7 explode it took me 4 hours to get it replaced. Not going thru that again. If I had to choose another device at this stage it would probably be a LG V20. The Google pixel XL looks too much like an Iphone which I refuse to have.

    Not a lot of good options out there in my opinion. For me lg v20 or maybe an iphone 7plus.

    Basically you can get any device you want. I'll do the refund route and go from there.

    That Deluxe they have a 6gb ram snapdragon 821 too if I've read about it correctly? Looks like a beast.

    Is the Pixel XL going to be sold unlocked directly from Google or Best Buy since I use tmobile? If I'm correct only Verizon will sell it. besides, I don't want a carrier phone again after my tmobile ordeal right now.
    The Deluxe Special Edition has the Snapdragon 821 with 6GB RAM. Only thing I don't like about it is the price tag of $799. For $499, I can get the regular Deluxe with the Snapdragon 820, also has 6GB RAM. I don't see paying a $300 premium for a. Snapdragon 821.

    "T-Mobile has stopped sales" I wish it was true, but as I type this they still have them for sale. I just took one all the way though to the purchase phase, just to make sure.

    FYI if you use the GSam App you can set temperature alarms so you don't have to constantly monitor the device (while you keep it within reach and eye sight!).

    Out of an abundance of caution for our customers, @TMobile is halting sales & exchanges of the new Note7. Details: https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news-a...te7-update.htm

    I exchanged my N7 to an S7E today at a corp ATT store. I was given the option to just return the phone, so I don't think you should have a problem getting your NEXT upgrade back.

    Samsung and the wireless providers will disable the phones if people don't return them. The last recall was evidence of that by shorting the battery life to 60%. Sorry it's hard for you to understand but safety is first and they will do what they have too to protect the human race.

    Sir, please name the last phone that was remotely killed by a carrier or a company? I mean I don't know one. So please educate me. And not that they don't have the capacity to do so. But when have they "done" so?
    Also where did I ever mention that I will keep the zombie Note 7? No one is disputing the fact that carriers are stopping or halting their sales. My whole post was about disabling the phone......Not sure what yours was about.
    Tell me the last time we had a situation like we currently have. Where 2.5 million defective, potentially dangerous phones had to be ordered taken back. And now we have the strong possibility for the supposedly safe versions to also be taken back. With so many people talking about keeping the new batch of Note 7s (and a large percentage of the first batch still out there), Samsung may have to remotely disable the phone. They already remotely updated the 1st batch in S. Korea where it limited charging to just 60%. If there are tens of 1000s, maybe hundreds of 1000s of unsafe phones out in the wild that some users don't want to return, they may be forced to remotely kill the phones. I didn't say it was a guarantee, but it's looking more likely than not that they may have to do that if there is another recall and people refused to return the phones.

    To your last point: I said if there is no recall for the 2nd batch, then the carriers will likely not support them on their networks, would not offer any updates, making them essentially zombie phones. You already said you'd return your Note 7 when there is a 2nd recall. So it sure appears you'd likely keep it otherwise. So that's why I said you're welcome to keep a zombie phone. That means you may keep it, or your may return it.

    That's what I wanted to do as well. The store manager would have honored my request had I been returning the recalled Note not the replacement.

    Am I missing something? I traded my old one for a new one already and am extremely happy. Why are you folks just now getting your replacements? Or is something wrong with them too?
