    I ave no idea yet on the results as I actually did the exchange of the last day of my cycle. I've tried to check on line but all I can see was last months billings where it doesn't show. If it is as reliable as the' free overnight shipping promised' I am not holding my breath.

    Been a week or so at least and not more talk of note 7s catching fire.....guess if it was a conspiracy/sabotage those that did feel the job was done.....lol.

    well the V20 is suppose to be released at my att store today supposedly anyway, so bye bye note 7 you will be missed.

    What happens if it causes a fire and she didn't choose to bring it back? Could that be an insurance issue if you had a serious house fire and a Fire Marshall discovered that her phone was the accidental cause? It would be well known everywhere that the note 7 was recalled. I would be annoyed, as she probably is, if I had to return my phone , if I liked it and there was no exact replacement. I understand her feelings. But insurance wise, there could be a problem and you wouldn't want to not be covered for your possible losses.. Both my son and son in law are in the insurance business(health, not property/casualty) but I heard them talking about that possibility the other day.. So it is a topic of discussion in the insurance world currently. You may want to ask your home insurance broker about our before making a final decision ..

    It won't. Period.
    There are a thousand other things that could kill, maim, choke, strangle, burn us to death every single day. I refuse to live in a bubble because a few phones caught on fire. There are a million Note 7s still in operation, yet we haven't heard of any catching fire for weeks. If it happens it happens. I choose to believe we'll be fine.

    I agree.. You'll probably be absolutely fine. I'm just surrounded by insurance types at home and they are always talking about stuff...I probably shouldn't listen to them anyway. . They can make me paranoid( lol )

    I think this is a great point.... there is way to much uncertainty with the Note 7 issues. I personally feel that if a company as big as Samsung actually goes through the trouble to totally recall a flagship device then the issue should be taken seriously.

    Yeah there haven't been any new cases but honestly I bet the majority of people have taken action and exchanged their devices.

    Some people may want to gamble with their safety and property but for me personally that was not a gamble I was going to take.

    @redbert31 thanks for sharing what you've heard from your son and son in law!

    I'm only returning it because it's going to be shut off soon, I don't believe it was a serious issue, but the media hype certainly exacerbated it it the point Samsung had to do something. Very sad for an awesome device doomed to corporate corruption.
    My opinion, and my choice to continue to use it.
    On another note, the S7 edge is in the house and setup, when the box comes, the Note will be powered off and sent on its way.

    You're welcome... Everybody who has one who's an adult is free to make a choice and I understand both sides. My husband needs his note(I think it's 4 it 5) because his hands aren't too steady and he can't use a virtual keyboard... If it was his model of note that was recalled( and you can't get real keyboard phones any more), he world keep it anyway because there aren't other stylus phones at this point. So I hope ultimately that they come out with another stylus phone to make the decision easier for those that want to keep the s7

    If they recalled them because there is a definite safety issue you are right, but if the recalled them as a CYA move only, not so right.
