    It Has Begun!!! With two-thirds of Note 7 devices have been replaced in Europe to date, and it hopes this new battery-limiting software update will get the other third returned. It will not be long before it reaches the U.S. and other countries where people are holding on to their devices. Samsung has already started pushing notifications and other forms of direct communication to users, and keeping everyone up to date on all relevant social media channels.

    I'd return my Note if there were an S7-edge available, but to this date, none. How can I replace without stock in the stores, and I'm certainly not driving around town to find if another store has it, I'm not the one wanting it replaced.

    This will infuriate me! Where is our root to block OTA's?

    We had to order our S7 Edges from VZW online. I've been hearing Samsung will be giving half off if you commit to an S8?

    Of course. If you are not rooted you can just freeze the update applications.
