    Is there an official statement from Samsung on their press release site, yet? All I keep finding are secondary sources.

    I didn't get anything. I had to find out off my Twitter feed about the 2nd recall. I ended up Dm'ing Verizon & they weren't much help. All they said was return it to get a new one.. I'm just like. I wasn't born yesterday. Its gonna end up being like the Droid Maxx. I was stuck on kit Kat & they didn't plan to update anymore. - I have no idea what I'm gonna do. I'll probably go back to my maxx until the note 8 drops. Hoping for that deal. I'm heading to Verizon today. I'll keep everyone posted.
    I think I might be in the same boat. I just got rid of my Galaxy S7 and I will be HIGHLY upset if I have to buy another one...so I think I'm going to suck it up and take two steps back. Gosh I just keep getting more and more frustrated by all this....

    How do you back up text messages?
    I'll be switching back to my Note 5 as well. Did you need to wipe your Note 5 first before using Smart Switch to pull the data from the Note 7?

    Just want to know whats the best approach in getting this done. I don't want to lose my text messages and application data.
    I don't ever use smartswitch. I use an app called SMS Backup Restore. It's created by the online backup company Carbonite so it's not a shady app.

    I back my call log and SMS log to my Google Drive. (You can also simply back it up to your device and then drag it to your computer and back to your new device.)

    On my new phone I download it from my Google Drive and use that app to restore. Works pretty slick. I've used it from Note 5 > Note 5 > Note 7 > Note 5 > Note 7> and now back to Note 5.

    I'm not even giving back all the items that came in the box; headphones and charger are mine now.
    Which reminds me, Verizon tried to tell me last time that I needed to return the charger. Never did because I didn't have it with me. They are not getting anything back this time.

    SMSBackupRestore - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pRestore&hl=en

    It backs up/restores MMS as well (remember to check the option tho).

    Unless you work for Samsung or Verizon I don't see your almost guarantee meaning anything. Because Verizon did ask for it back last time if I opted for a replacement.
    Verizon can go pound sand, all that matters is what Samsung ask for

    Last time when I went in to get my replacement Note 7, Verizon was ******** I didn't have my box or any of the accessories and I just told them I threw them all out after I got the phone. It was a safety recall, what are they going to do, not take the dangerous phone back because you didn't bring back the box? I never intended to have to bring the phone back, any missing accessories is theirs and Samsung's problem. I kept my original SPen too out of spite.

    I think they'll release another phone with the expected Note features, but I doubt it will be under the Note brand. The name has a negative connotation to a lot of the public right now, so rebranding to give it a fresh start would make sense

    Also, the S7 Edge has a 5.5" screen, and I expect there will be an S8 Edge too, so it's not a huge difference other than missing the S-Pen and having the curved screen
    The only other branding I could see them doing is just calling it the N8. They are not starting all over. That's like Chipotle renaming it's restaurants after the e coli issues.

    Yep, I back both of them up to my Google Drive with that app. (I didn't explain that very well.)

    It's a pretty sweet free app, tbh. It's one reason why I hate using iOS every so often... I lose my text messages.

    Price is still not going down on private sales of Note 7. US model has seen a drop of maybe $100 in last day but EU version is still at its original pricing.

    I would like a Pixel XL but I will wait for the first group of user to have it for at least one month. I did love my note 7 but I'm not ready to die for it.

    It was free.....now I'm on a 2 year agreement for the imbedded sim that requires the use of it's own phone number when it's not around the exploding note7...

    I picked up a g5 over the weekend for $220 to hold me over to see if there is anything else that peaks my interest. The Note 7 was a great device and checked every box for me. I don't think I will ever buy another Samsung if they stop the note line altogether. Samsung is a huge company but this is a big blow that could take years to fully recover from.

    For sellers it's much much much better than Ebay. I still buy off both, but only sale my phones on Swappa now.
    Just out of curiosity I checked on Swappa, and it doesn't look like they're going to let people sell them on there at this point.
