    Am I reading correctly that the ones labeled like above are the so-called "safe" ones?

    I wonder if the IMEI database will include models manufactured before the problem became apparent. As I understand it, one provider's batteries were good while another's were bad. If they kept track of which battery they put into which phone, 30% of us wouldn't have to exchange.

    My first guess would be to converse with it..see if it had a short fuse..or if it would go off easily..

    The check of the IMEI is apparently a conclusive way to check, so you have raised a valid argument.

    I'm so confused. Are they going to announce when we can expect the replacements to ship or be available? Right now it just seems like you'll get it when you get it...which would be fine if they just said that. No, I don't want my money back or a downgraded device if I don't have to do that. All I want is a date, something to base my expectations on besides "rumors". The average consumer is moving on and the loyalists are on edge.

    A date...that's all I need. A Verizon rep at their customer service center told me the Note 7 was discontinued...I was so disgusted I just hung up on her and I'm not usually that scummy. End of my whining, sorry.

    Just spoke with a source of mine at Verizon, someone who definitely would be in the know. What she told me was, and I quote, "You know what we know. Samsung told us they would be in by next week". When I questioned her and tried to nail down a specific as to when next week, her response was again and I quote, "They didn't tell us whether it was going to be Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday, just that it was going to be next week".

    This is not Verizon fault, mind you. As is often said, don't shoot the messenger.

    I'm more interested in the process. What do I need to bring when I walk into the Verizon store to get my replacement..
