    I would like to see some kind of rebate promotion for those who owned a Note 7 from Samsung on a future Samsung device.
    That would be nice. Make sure you keep your IMEI number just in case or a copy of the purchase receipt to prove ownership. I think this is something that won't happen but I sure hope so.

    I guess I'm returning out two Note 7's then driving down to Best Buy and pick up two S7 Edges. They're $120 cheaper than at the Verizon stores, plus you get a free TV.

    But now I have three cases, two screen protectors and several USB-C cables that are worthless. At least I can still use the two wireless fast chargers.

    Not only is this a big financial hit for Samsung. But for us consumers who bought accessories that can not be returned. Then there's the aftermarket accessories manufacturers that manufactured a boat load of useless accessories.
    The fallout of this goes well beyond just Samsung. Not nearly the same in terms of raw dollars, but still. Aftermarket accessories, chargers, cables, packaging and distribution for the same, etc. All of it is now largely useless. This recall is bad for the consumer, bad for the environment, bad for Samsung, and bad for smartphones in general. It will also result in an inflated ego over at Apple probably artificially boosting the sales of their iPhone 7 Plus devices to levels that they would not have otherwise achieved. This will make them think that removing the headphone jack and releasing such meager incremental changes like the iPhone 7 is perfectly fine because consumer demand is still high. The situation sucks all-around. I'm primarily an Apple user, but I appreciate the design that went into the Note 7 and decided to get it for that reason. I also wanted to vote with my wallet against Apple's recent decisions. Little did I know that their main competitor will shoot themselves in the foot the same year when Apple has their weakest showing.

    I would consider a discounted Note 5 for my troubles. It would be a good compromise for me as I wait for the next Note iteration.

    Verizon is pushing the iPhone 7. When they tried to insist that I switch to one my husband said, "She would NEVER do that!" And that is why my husband is a keeper. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I may have been crazy but I ordered the note 5 from Verizon this morning. Gold with all accessories . A gift box. . I'm keeping my N7 as I bought it outright and no one can stop me from using it. I love it. Its very sad. I know it's probably not what most would do but I want the size, and most of all the spen. in case the 7 is deactivated I don't want to be without a note. I hope I'll be content enough until the 8. I'll keep using my N7 but need something I can travel with. Switching to a different phone I don't have the energy to do after the past 2 months of this mess. At least with the 5 I'll have mySpen and know the phone.

    All I know is that Samsung isn't getting these headphones back. Or the micro USB to USB-C adaptor. I'd keep the spen but it's useless with a s7 edge. I think it's useless with it. If not, I'm keeping that too. And I'm keeping the USB charging cable.

    I love my replacement note 7. Just got it up and running this past Sunday. I'm sick to have to replace this forum a lesser device. It's either s7 edge or iPhone 7 plus. I've never been an iPhone person but I'm so pissed off at Samsung that i may just do it. If Samsung would offer is note 7 owners a deep discount I an s7 or s7 edge or a deep discount on an s8/ edge or note 8 next year then the choice would be easy. I find no reason in the world to get a lesser device with less features for basically the same money to be a good or happy choice. This fiasco we have gone through and time wasted is disgusting and Samsung should be trying to keep us loyal customers. Telling me to Power down and get an s7 or edge at full price or a refund after all this bs is ridiculous and might make me goto apple out of spite alone. Not to mention that getting an iphone7 plus is a no brainer as far as it just working and working well. Smooth, fast as hell, great battery life and a camera on par with the n7/s7edge.

    I'm really considering this. Unless Samsung steps up for us and offers something decent off of one of their own. I'm pretty angry at them, I really am.

    I am trying to decide between going backwards to the S7E or the Pixel XL. Granted i really don't want either and will be settling for whatever i end up doing. Though i may just go back to my N3 and just wait for the next iteration in the Note line.

    Too bad VZW doesn't support it. Sounds nice except for lack of ir blaster. The Honor 8 has ir blaster but is also unsupported.
    That's unfortunate Verizon doesn't support it. All the carriers in Canada run on GSM and support it. There's only one carrier that runs on a different frequency, same as T-Mobile.
    I heard the Honor 8 is a really good phone too.
    I take it you have an excellent plan with Verizon and can't switch carriers?

    Unlimited data for less $ than a 6gb plan. Also VZW has best service in my area.

    So I just had a quick thought. Samsung says we should replace it with an S7 or S7 edge OK let's assume I go within a 7 edge. They haven't even figured out what caused the issue with the note 7 so who's to say that the same thing Juan occur with the S7 edge? I know the S7 and edge have been out for a number of months but whatever manufacturing process they've used in one I assume is very similar to the note 7. My point being shouldn't they wake for they tell everyone to stop using their note sevens at least until they figure out exactly what the problem is with it then we can make an intelligent decision as to whether or not we want to stick with another Samsung phone from 2016?

    Forgive me, I didn't read through 19 pages...

    So what do people now think, or what is the general consensus - the Galaxy Note 8 will be pushed forward for an earlier release?
    Maybe the "pushed forward Galaxy S8" will now become the Note 8?
    Will the "Note" name be buried into a grave and something else used instead?

    Kinda' sucks a bit for me, but I'm nowhere near as badly affected as others - I didn't even manage to get a Note 7. I've been using a 2gb RAM LG G3 for the past 26 months and in late-August, I was intending to order the Note 7. Actually, it had gotten into September with me calling the company every-other-day to see when they were getting their stock and then, lo and behold, the phone was 'taken off the shelves' on the 2nd or 3rd, here in the UK.
    The re-release was initially expected for the end of September/ early October, but then got pushed back to the 28th of Oct.
    Now, it seems I won't even be able to get it then.

    Now if my LG G3 wasn't as painfully slow as it has been since the second week of owning it, I wouldn't complain too much, but right now people like me aren't in an ideal situation... do we get an (aging) S7 Edge when the S8 is probably five months away and 'keep on waiting' or hope that Samsung will rectify the situation by releasing some other Note model in the meantime?

    And as a reminder, whilst it may still be a good phone, the Note 4 was the last version available to the UK market, making 'things suck' even more, as it's not the Note 5 other people could get their hands on.
    I could really do with a stylus with a phone as I make quite a lot of notes and really there isn't a phone other than the Note series which fits that bill.

    If you like stock Android then Pixel XL. I have the S7 Edge and love it. With all this Note 7 fiasco, you can probably get a pretty good deal on a S7 Edge.

    The S7 and the S7e are fine, they have been out long enough that any systemic problem would have shown up by now. Also there are enough design differences in the the Note 7 (room for SPen and USB C etc...) for the note 7 build to have some unique areas of failure.
