    Wifi calling requires carrier support. They will kill that too, you can bet that.

    Who the hell is still holding onto these things? I'm waiting for the whiners to cry about being charged the full price of the phone after being refunded. Give it up.

    Based on the response and stance from Verizon in the various articles... They are quickly moving from minimizing impact of their note 7 user base to now stating "The recalled Note 7s pose a safety risk to our customers and those around them."

    It'll be interesting to see how quickly the remaining holdouts turn in their devices when faced with the reality that Verizon will be charging them full price for the device as well as blocking service on their network.

    I'd expect the other carriers to quickly follow suit.

    After this news, I'm just waiting for Samsung to send over a 'security patch' that will disable Wi-Fi so the device would truly be useless.

    And I agree, I'm all about watching for the tweets and posts about how people are getting charged the full retail for the device. It's going to be hilarious! It's a GLOBAL recall people... Not just 'if you feel like it"...

    Verizon wont take our note 7s back. They keep saying to take it to Sam's club. We've tried but they don't want it also. They noted our account. We'll see if they try to charge us.

    If you purchased at Sam's club, take it into Sam's club. They don't have a choice in this matter. Call Samsung corporate of you run into any issues.

    Here is the text that Sam's club was sending out about it. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...=1#post5426406

    The only issue you may run into is that you're over three months late on the turn in.

    Well there is no law that says a consumer MUST comply with a recall. They can't arrest or fine anyone for choosing not to participate in a recall. So if I don't feel like it, what can they really do?

    I don't see how you can be charged for a phone that has been rendered useless.

    I love my note 7. They will have to kill it before I go back to my note 5. I use the note 5 when flying though. I'm ok endangering my own things, but not others. Oh, and my carrier is at&t, so I'm off the hook for a while.

    When the next Note 7 phone catches fire and damages something it will be interesting to see who is to blame for the damages. I would not like to be that person.

    I guess that i'm just a pessimist at heart. I believe that the Note 7 holdouts are just in it for the possibility of getting big bucks for that phone, sometime in the future. They have had more than enough time to "trade in or trade up". Whatever happens to them, they deserve.

    If someone has elected to keep the phone after numerous requests to return it and numerous notifications that it will be disabled... Why not?

    They've been reimbursed for the phone up front - essentially having a "free ride" for the past several months.

    Now the bill has come due... Either return the device immediately (which really is Samsung's at this point) or pay for essentially what is or will be a bricked device.

    There is no "free" phone here...

    Asa reminder: If you have been reimbursed and still have it, that's fraud. Please do not promote fraud within the forums.

    Why? You have the device, and have been told to return the device. You signed a contract for the device so Verizon will now enforce the contract. They are tired of playing games with the few holdouts.
