    I doubt they can enforce any deadline so soon, maybe in a few months. I turned off updates so they cannot brick mine that way. I also am undecided as to my eventual replacement.

    I ordered the LG V20. If I don't like it (Hopefully I do). SIM Card is going right back in the Note 7 until I find another phone that will do. The only thing I won't do is get on an airplane with the Note 7. I ain't trying to get arrested or taken in some green room because of the Note 7....lol. That's where I draw the line. I am just hoping the LG V20 does the trick for me.

    When you turn off updates, doesn't it turn off updates for the apps as well?

    Good luck on that. The phone eventually will be crippled. It is official. . Dump it!
    Actually no. The Note 7 is far from "dead". In fact it just received an update:
    Received an update on SM-N9300 | Samsung Galaxy Note 7

    On October 13th, Sprint sent me a text saying I had 15 days to return phone or I'll have to pay in full. Text was on note 7 so I don't have that text anymore.
    I'll be livid if T-mobile tries to pull this bs. If I want to keep my Note 7 that's my choice you can't force me to give it back, hell I'll even sign a waiver saying I take full responsibility for the phone and my safety. ๐Ÿ˜ง

    My guess, it could be the last update. I got that update the same day i got the 7. System version is the same etc
    I wouldn't be surprised if they rolled a brick out. I have yet to return mines but not in use.

    A tmob rep also told me online they haven't set a deadline for us to return it, I'm also milking it to see what phone I decide to downgrade to.

    I've been with Sprint for 10 years. I never got that text, but if they ever pulled a stunt like that, I would dump them in a New York minute. I'll return the Note when I get my hands on a suitable replacement. In this case, I'm waiting until the 28th to get the V20. I know, even if I HAD received that text on the 13th saying I had 15 days to return it, that would be the 28th anyway, but it's the principal of the matter.

    I heard Samsung hired Joe Pesci to go around and bust all the Note 7s kneecaps! Lol no, there is speculation that Samsung will eventually send out some type of update to essentially brick the phone. At the very least, I can see the carriers eventually booting them off the networks and blacklisting the IMEI numbers so they'll just be a wifi only device.
    By coincidence I'm home alone; we'll see about that!

    Put CyanogenMod on it and replace the battery with a few of these. You will have longer battery life, a non-crippled device, and one that won't explode.

    I also have T-Mobile, and would like to have it as long as possible, and still get a full refund when I am willing to return it. Say in 6 months from now, can I still get a full refund?
    They should refund us anytime. I think a recall never ends. Why make us buy something we don't want ? Without a incentive for us to be a loyal customer. I don't expect anything for free but heavily discounted S7 would make feel better about being a Samsung customer.

    The Gear VR was not an actual feature of the Note 7. That's an accessory, and that was a choice made by Oculus. My Note 7 functions the same as it did the first day I got it.

    So there is a deadline to deadline for the refund or exchange of the Galaxy Note 7 is December 3.

    So, if anything goes wrong with your handset after the deadline, the company won't be held responsible.

    So if true, the mods should make this date a sticky to make all aware? Because I would imagine, after December 3rd, you can't refund or exchange at full price, the phone would be worthless On the secondary market?

    4 reasons why Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users should return the device soon

    Same boat as OP. I don't want to downgrade to anything currently available. I don't want to get into a 7 Edge and pay premium price for a phone that's 7 months old. I don't want to get a phone this close to the S8's being announced and give up my upgrade. Until there is something solid with regards to time limit I'm hanging on to my N7.

    The article I referenced gave a deadline December 3 to get your refund or exchange.

    So you are saying you're willing to hold onto your note 7 until S8 announce in February... after the deadline... letting your phone value basically go to zero ?

    Hey guys...I am telling u...V20 is a beast. Been on a note for 4 years now....just got my V20 yesterday...this phone is awesome. So much faster battery life way better than N7 audio is awesome...screen not quite as good but still a great screen, and 2nd screen is fantastic. Way better than edge screen. I love large screen phones and having a flat screen u get more screen size than on N7. Don't hesitate on this phone...if I had the choice of which phone to have straight up...right now I would take thus over N7....I didn't use s pen that much. Love ir blaster too!

    December 3rd is the deadline . . . in KOREA.

    No deadline has been set in the United States.

    this is from the first recall in south korea
    Samsung has a stop-gap fix for the Note 7 problem: OTA update to limit charge to 60% - Android Authority

    yes that could happen here in USA if more reports of issues come in, they are just letting consumers come in at free will

    airlines alrdy banned the phone so those who travel good luck with that but why risk it?

    lets say something happens with your phone and damages or lives are taken will you ask for Samsung for payment or admit it was your fault for refusing to turn in?

    So there's a basically deadline to return with T-mobile if your financing your Note 7, I just found out from XDA then confirmed by checking my upcoming T-mobile bill... I'm so mad right now I can't even tell you... ugh they're tying to talk me into getting the S7E which I'd have to pay a ridiculous $69 down for a 7 month old phone and get this since I have Jump I wouldn't be able to upgrade again until I pay off half of the phone SMH. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜
