    From everything I have read there are still a significant number of least the 'new' note 7s in the wild. Last I heard was over a million. I still think the bad 'new' note 7s were a hoax. Why? Because I loved it? Yes. Also because as soon as they did the total recall the fires stopped. Suspicious? Yes.

    Last I heard was there were about 15% of the original inventory remaining out in peoples' hands. I still have one.

    I talked to a gentleman at my favorite T-Mo store over the weekend and they told me that the phone would no longer be covered by support/warranty after 15 December. There's your deadline, if you care about such things.

    I'm still on the fence. Definitely need to get an iPhone 7 Plus for the wife, but do I really want to "slum" in her Note 3 until the "Note 8" or whatever they brand it as comes out? Or can I fade the about $60 it would cost me to go to an S7 Edge now and switch later?

    Thing is, that $60 assumes the new stylus phone comes out toward September of next year. If it's earlier, it's more $. $60 is nothing, but earlier and more could be something. If I knew the date with anything resembling certainty, the decision would be easier.

    PGE on the Note 7? Def something I would be very interested in. It's sad the RAM, storage and performance are killed by Samsung's Touch UI.

    The note 7 didn't use touchwiz. It used Grace UI which was codeveloped with google. There were no performance, storage, or RAM issues with the Note 7.

    Several have said that Samsung should figure out the cause, or fix the cause, but...........what if there really wasn't a cause?
    You can't find something that isn't there.
    I'm not saying there was not a problem with the Note7 gen2, but I, just as many others, have my suspicions.

    That's why I think this story is false! How can you refurbish if you don't know what the problem is? Plus, selling it to third world countries-that'd be crazy public relations! I haven't turned mine in yet, and if it were true it could be refurbished, I say do mine right now at no charge then re-enable my Gear VR and Samsung Pay!

    I don't recall that article saying anything about the issue being solved.

    It also doesn't say that "will" be re-selling the device, it's all conjecture at this point.

    And why do you say that? Because they plan to sell them to non-US markets?

    No, dude, that's not what he's saying. I'm pretty sure this story is false! It just doesn't make sense! You don't believe it, do you?

    They supposedly solved the issue at first and did the reissue of devices. As far as the global recall ALL major corporations weigh the cost of lawsuits vs recalls when dealing with global sales. In this case, whether legit or not I'd bet Samsung did the recall as a cost saver vs all the lawsuits, real fires or not, first or second batch. Recall them all and start over. The U.S. government getting involved probably helped influence the decision as Americans are sue happy about everything.
    Maybe the second batch had problems, maybe not but it was cheaper for Samsung just to start over.
    As far as validity, even the thread title says it's a rumor but it's nice to discuss and have a little fun at Samsung expense isn't it?
