    Doesn't sound promising for those who decided not to upgrade & just go back to our old devices if true. Like myself, im back on a maxx but still had a upgrade availability that sat around for almost 2 yrs b4 the 7. Sounds like a lost cause but.. it is what it is. Win some you lose some💁

    I could use a little Samsung compensation to help pay for my new iTurd.

    I also wonder if it will be directly from Samsung the phone? Or do they send you a voucher to go to your carrier?
    I would wait till there is even a hint of true evidence before even trying to figure this out. This is a pure rumor / someone being hopeful.

    Ditto. I don't want an s8, I will keep using my "old" s7edge till I see a Note 8 or equivalent for pre order.

    If I were Samsung and was going to do this I would do it for the ones that stayed with Samsung. It's an extra thank you for sticking with us and not bailing. The ones that bailed were taken care of with the recall
    Exactly the most loyal ones should be rewarded. Think they would suffer a huge loss if they gave everyone that had a note a free s8 because let's face it even the ones that didn't jump ship because of the recall will claim they did just to get a free device. I don't think Samsung owes a free device to everyone. Recalls are apart of business and they were nice enough not to try and force you into staying with their brand(yes they are offering rebates, but still giving you free will to pick your own device).

    Yes, they could have just given refunds or exchange for another Samsung product.

    I think we can all agree Samsung won't be giving us a free phone. It'll be discounted, sure but never free. That's way too far for them.

    Hmm... I think the "crazies" like myself who are still using the N7 should get a freebie. Reward us for taking a chance! 😛

    But really, if it's true, it's nice to know our loyalty is appreciated. Compensation and understanding go a long way. With that being said, I don't want an S8. As others have mentioned, I want the next Note like device.

    I hope this is true.... I am almost up on my 2 weeks with my new s7 edge - it is NOT a good replacement for the N7.... but if I can get the SN8 - and it will need to be similar to the note... than I will keep my s7 edge and wait it out.... I could always go back to my Note 4 - but my daughter is using it.... I don't want to be stuck with this S7 edge for 2 years... ugh

    Quote "without paying much." Won't be free.
    Also there was something about being in a Galaxy Club. What's that?
    Yeah what's the Galaxy Club? I never heard of it and Sprint never mentioned it. Is it like what Apple is doing? I want more proof about this or its fake...

    It's not going to be a free S8 for no reason. It will be an exchange program. Likely something along the lines of:

    "Previous Note 7 owners who traded in their Note 7 phone for an S7 or S7 Edge can trade their S7/S7 Edge in for an S8 for free"

    Basically, this makes sense because the S7/S7 Edge is an inferior phone to the Note 7. So it makes sense to offer the S8 to Note 7 owners.

    Also, I suspect they will allow any unredeemed Note 7's to be traded in for an S8

    They are trying to lure people back long term, but seems misdirected. They would be better served offering discounts for the Note equivalent for former Note 7 owners when released next year and let people know now.

    A lot of people already bailed to other non Samsung devices and now all they are doing is unintentionally encouraging people that held out, to keep their Note 7 until the S8 comes out and see what it is. For people that went to other devices (a lot) they are essentially burning a bridge- unless they will get a discount to lure back as well.

    The article says it's for those who have the S7 or S7 Edge who switched... Not for those with the Note 7... The article says they would get it at a discounted price not really free

    I hope it's true though

    Little too late.... Everyone is already jumping ship why didnt they offer this before if this is true..........So you tell us to power down and want us to use loaners and back up phones for 6 months til the small s8 comes out?...They like to see us suffer don't they...
    I saw a poll of Note 7 users saying that 75% of us would stick with Samsung

    What about those of us that purchased a 'safe' note 7, returned it when they asked, and went back to our note 5's?

    Yeah, I went back to mine. But, I'm too scared of it exploding as it has hit 115 degrees F while charging. I get my LG V20 tomorrow.

    I'm guessing based on receipts. As a former note 7 owner, I really hope this is program is legit.
