    Replacement Note 8 phone. Have had it for about 2 weeks. This a.m. my SPen decides it doesn't want to come out. I of course have it inserted correctly. WhenI push for it to partially eject, it won't.

    That would be annoying. Can you take it to a phone shop where they have the tools to extricate the offending pen?

    I could. But I don't want to lol. I have no patience for those stores. I'm not one that uses it all the time, but still. It should work. I have a message in to Tmobile messenger chat and will see what they say first.

    Somebody else also posted about this same problem yesterday. I thought it could be a defective release spring or catch.

    P.S. That spring is in the S pen itself, it's what pops out the end so you can grab it. So, it doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem with your phone.

    I hope this isn't a recurring issue for many users. So far it seems random, but I just see two s pen stuck posts today and it had me worried lol.

    No need to worry. It's not a problem with the phone itself. Sometimes, the spring and release mechanism on the S pen can get stuck. Worst case scenario is that you have to replace the S pen.

    I'm not that concerned now. The S Pen I have is from my original Note 8 I got on Sept 7. When the replacement Note 8 arrived about 2 weeks ago, the store took the SPen and put in this replacement phone. I've never had an issue before.

    Just wondering, did you save your s- pen from your note 7? Also,off topic but did you have access to your samsung notes on your replacement note8?

    Have you tried with the phone in a case and knocking it gently on a table with the spen part over the side?
