    Those carriers that are working with Samsung to do this here in the United States may be looking at lawsuits!!!

    Samsung and the consumer safety agency said stop using the phones they have deemed it unsafe.... they are trying to protect consumers... why would they be sued for that?

    And your point is?
    Just because so many people are quick to believe everything they hear in the media, doesn't make it fact.

    Whether it be or not I can understand Samsung's position. All they need is someone who did not return it to have an issue and here we go again with the publicity.

    Yeah Samsung has legally done their all and those using it should be held responsible. But at the end of the day in this sue happy world somehow Samsung will find themselves in the middle. So for their interests they need to do all they can to try and gather all 100% or make them inactive so to prevent any future incidences.

    Jeffrey you give me a break. How many "legitimate" replacement devices have caught fire since the recall? The media has a long history of blowing sh!t out.of proportion....and with social media thrown into the mix the last few years, it hasn't helped matters. People are so quick to believe everything they hear, without actually looking into things and making an informed decision. It's sad really.
    But that's just me.

    The legitimate replacements were phones of your choice.. ie.. S7.. some chose the iPhone..

    If your car was recalled due to brake failure that you have not experienced.. would you take it to the dealer???

    Though you make a good point the reality is that Samsung decided it was best to remove them from the market and go as far as making it mandatory.

    Yeah you are right, since the recall we still have note 7s in the field and no more reports of incidences of them catching fire. So the recall may have been premature. But Samsung with regards to their legal team made the decision. Plus it is not like airports and air carriers are going to remove the ban or stop reminding us that they are banned from flight.

    Look at the end of the day if a person choose to keep the device even with all the warnings then they know the risks and as long as they do not have it on in flight I'm good. Samsung is doing everything they are required to do to keep them from being liable per their lawyers. At this point it is going to be on the person to decide if they want to hold on to a device that has been recalled and will no longer be supported (via updates) by the manufacturer, carrier, or Google.

    I also don't think it necessary to deem a person incompetent if they keep the device knowing the risks as long as they are aware of the places that have banned them.
