    I wanna keep mine but I just ordered a Pixel. What pushed me to purchase it was the 20% off coupon and the $200 credit for my Motorola razr maxx. Hope I don't regret giving it up. Wont get the pixel until Dec. 11

    mine has received no updates; I did use the package disabler. Are other people in the US getting some sort of an update, or is this just something overseas?

    November 1st here and I haven't seen any updates come through. I am using Package Disabler. I plan to do what it takes to keep this phone till the new ones are out.

    Did you initiate the return in store? I'm trying to understand the return process. Over the phone, a sprint store associate told me I'd have to bring my phone into the store. Thanks
    No they did it all on their own. I haven't gotten a box to return though.

    Yes but is 100% still 3500 mAh or is it closer to 2100?
    How exactly would one tell?

    Battery life, if they're getting substantially less usage than before.

    I have a hypothesis to a possible root cause for the Note 7 battery debacle, but I'm wondering if anyone can duplicate the issue. I still have my Note 7 (I don't want to give it up and I've had no problems with it at all). I've observed an interesting issue when charging my phone, however. If I plug the USB-C in so that the metal mesh of the charger is facing down relative to the face of the phone, the charging of the battery *never* heats up. However, if I plug the USB-C charger in so that the mesh of the charger is facing up relative to the face of the phone, my battery heats up significantly. If I reseat the charger to the mesh down position, the battery cools down.

    Has anyone else able to reproduce this condition in their Note 7?

    Can you explain more precisely what you are doing, with some illustration? I can test it with my phone but I don't understand your message.

    But no app or anything that you're aware of that might give a clearer indication?

    Oh, here are 2 screenshots of what I have disabled with the version 6.3 of the package disabler Premium app. I had to give 2 screenshots because there was one more item in the list when I scroll down... Anyway, it's a couple more items to check on that I found on the Note 7 Rebels page... For Verizon, they even have more but some of them did not seem necessary. Curious to see what other Verizon users are disablingI'm *keeping* my Note 7..-1478119906892.jpgI'm *keeping* my Note 7..-1478119914426.jpg

    look at your c charger end, there is a top and bottom. I call the bottom the side with the seam, or mesh as he called it. I think he meant it like that anyways. If he has the seam of the charger pin facing to the back of the phone, it is cooler when its charging compared to when the seam (mesh) is facing the same way the front of the phone faces. Make sense ?

    This is guaranteed to not be related to the defect in the battery of the Note 7.

    I always use my Note 7 as Sat Nav, dashcam, and for streaming music while fast charging as it's mounted on the top of the dash in the full glare of the hot summer sun down here down under. It gets almost too hot to touch by the time I get to where I'm going, but it still hasn't burst into flames.

    So what the hell has caused the other Note 7s to combust?

    A defect in the battery systems causing delayed onset combustion and not related to charging and seemingly not related to external factors.

    Why haven't there been more reports of failures if so many people haven't turned theirs in? Nothing lately.

    Way over 90% were apparently turned in.

    All the articles that said nearly a half a million were turned in ... Since there were between 500,000 and 800,000 phone in the US, that's somewhere between 0% to 37.5% with a median of 18.75% - and all of those numbers are over 3 weeks old, so assuming that more than zero people traded them in, it's safe to assume that almost all have been turned in.

    Though to play devil's advocate, those could include customers who initiated a return but haven't actually completed it yet. Either way, most of the users are moving along. Hopefully all of those who haven't yet or aren't going to remain safe.
