    Will this forum remain open for posterity, as sort of a scatter garden for those that had the Note 7 and were forced to move on?

    Not planning on closing it - people still need to be able to talk about how to return devices, issues they encounter doing so, best choices for alternative devices, etc.

    Yes not only Samsung but cell phone history. Wouldn't this be the first cell phone cancelled after a big launch?

    I was wondering the same thing. but in 2 years from now, will anyone really still have this device? What if Samsung does hit the big red button and announces a remote disable of the device? Most people think it can't happen, but in reality, it's very possible. Hell, we have that ability now, as individual owners of the devices, with remote wipe actions. Disabling it entirely isn't too far removed from that practice.

    It will stay open, but we'd like users to focus on exchanges and alternative devices. Since the Note 7 has been canned, there's no point in talking about much else.

    But I can't guarantee it'll stay that way for long.

    The Galaxy S2 forum is still open so I expect this one will be here for at least a little while.

    As was the Note 7. Depressing.

    To reiterate - there's no intention of closing down the section. We are working on getting it organized so that folks looking for help getting their devices returned, figuring out their next choice, etc. can quickly find the information they need. And hopefully that effort will mean they can do so without wading through tons of unhelpful stuff. As always, we expect members to be positive, productive and professional.

    The phone last MUCH longer but wasn't there an issue with the Sidekick also that caused them to cease making them and take down the server that supported it? I remember many, MANY people being up in arms when they had to turn in their Sidekicks!


    EDIT: I got curious so I googled it! Seems that it was a combination of things I was thinking about. There WAS a major outage and perceived (but not real) data loss issue, and the service was down for several weeks in 2009, but then in 2010/2011 the Danger (that was the company's name) discontinued cloud serves first on T-Mobile and than a little later on other global partners.

    Going to close this up. If the decision to close the forum is ever made, and I can't imagine a circumstance in which we'd do that - we'll post an announcement.
