    For what it's worth to the tin-foil hats, I frequently leave my phone at home on the charger while I go run errands. Not because I want or need to, but just because I am not melted at the ear to it. I have no games on it and I don't use social media (okay maybe I am the one with the foil hat...) and just don't see a compulsion for it to be with me 24/7.

    I leave my phone at home too. I don't carry it 24/7.

    Went into a Verizon store today and they tried to tell me that a Samsung Rep told them the explosion problems were caused by 3rd party chargers. This wasn't an isolated response. Apparently in the Michigan area, they're repeating this same BS. When I told them that there was an official Samsung response that contradicted that, they evaded like mad.

    Wow.

    Talk about being shady.

    Really hope that I can get a replacement somewhere in this state. My Note 7 is fine so far, but I don't like the battery roulette we're playing here.

    Print out the Samsung letter and bring it with you to the Verizon store. They can't deny the written letter.

    Haha, ahh... No. Btw, no talking about ins. fraud. Not a road we want to venture down, even in jest.

    I hope that these people are not making up stories to try and cash in on Samsung. I feel bad for them if their home, car did catch fire because of a phone. That's terrible. Hopefully they are not just trying to make a buck off of an already bad situation.

    I really doubt it. If it were, these types of "accidents" would be much more prevalent. And for real, what kind of sicko would elect to burn their house down with all their possessions in it? I had that happen to me last December and I can tell you, you never recover from it. We will be remembering things we lost in the fire for the rest of our lives, including my female lap cat, Bridget. She was the best.

    I may have never said this, but sorry about your house fire Fox. It happened to me as a kid and I remember how terrible it was.

    I didn't mean that either person intentionally set the fire. I never even thought that. What I hope is that after the fire happened, for whatever reason, they are not instantly jumping on the "it was my Note 7 that did it" idea.
