    How about this analogy: your car is recalled because of exploding airbags. You decline the invitation to take your car back to the repair place because you dont see the need. Is the car manufacturer then entitled to steal your car from your driveway, take it some place to install airbags and bring it back several days later and drop it in your driveway with a note saying "we did it for your own good"?

    We aren't talking about a car, we're talking about a phone and a recall that was done to save face. A recall that was done before all the facts were in. A recall on replacement devices that weren't catching fire. A recall due to dozens of bogus claims.
    I'm fine with the recall, but don't make it mandatory. Take ALL of the facts into consideration, not just SOME.

    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.[/QUOTE]

    That's not what it's about. If someone elects to keep the Note 7 and it does catch fire and burns down a house or perhaps an apartment building, I would think that person is responsible. Especially if someone is hurt or dies.

    The recall is about being responsible and protecting the wellbeing of you and others.

    If a person is up to date on bills and did not break the contract how could they just cut off your usage of the phone?

    Exactly!!!.... IT'S A PHONE!!!! why are we all getting so passionate and debating the details and what if's. The Note 7 was an awesome phone now it's no longer supported... look forward to newer and better devices that we all know 2017 will offer!

    None of that really matters. The manufacturer recalled the product. It's a potential risk and Sammy did the right thing.

    My Pixel XL will be here on Monday. If I wanted to keep my Note 7 I could because I have all updates blocked. I can still charge to 100%. I am just saying where in the contract do they say they can cut your phone off at anytime other then late or no bill payment or broken contract? If the phone is not being used for any illegal means they can not just turn it off.

    Chris, I'm in total agreement with you and D and her right to keep using the phone as long as she wishes. My car analogy was just that - an effort to say where do we draw the line at what is permissible for a manufacturer to do to enforce their recall demand. I've said it before, I don't believe what Samsung is attempting to do is *legal* in the US and they could find themselves in court trying to defend their "Father knows best" attitude towards adult American consumers who purchased a product which has worked perfectly and have no desire to return it for a refund or replacement.

    Those who were strongly against the recall (Note 7 people) how about a segment to hear your side. I sense this need to express. So I'm thinking either Sunday or Monday evening what works best for you guys?

    Though I say it as kind of a joke I am actually serious because this topic is a microcosm of similar strong debates I have seen take place on DL and other sites so I feel like taking a moment to flush that out (without me going all Steven A Smith on you guys).

    And if you are down hit me up or let me know, oh and save some of the energy for then.
