    Why would sammy sabotage their replacements? This whole thing is overblown.

    My latest plan, since my wifey wants an iPhone 7, is to wait until the stores get that, exchange my Note 7 for the iPhone, put that on her line, and use her Note 3 until the Note 8 or whatever they'll name the thing is available.

    I'd still rather hold on to my Note 7, but it will have no value at trade-in time since it's been recalled and will receive no support for the same reason. Tragedy, really. Damned awesome device.

    I didn't mean sabotage by Samsung. I'm thinking from other companies getting them and acting as regular users causing issues in the replacements.

    My thoughts exactly! Corporate espionage! This phone is such a beast; too hard for other manufacturers to come up with something better. What better way to ruin a great device! Create a few hazards.

    I know several people who are still refusing to give up their N7. I'm sure there are still several thousand that are still on. Yet no news of any more fires???

    Not an issue 1 with mine. I'm keeping it until it doesn't work anymore.

    I'm keeping mine till the v20 is out, which for att us the 28th of this month. No point in keeping a phone they arent gunna support anymore, let alone may not be able to return when my next program upgrade is up.

    It sure is a shame I love this phone. Oh wellit's only for a year or so till the note 8 or what ever they are going to call it.

    Going to check on replacement options tomorrow, don't know what or if I'll get anything, and I'll return the note when it's rendered inoperable.

    All indications are that we keep the pre-order gifts.

    That's gutsy because sooner or later the carriers will end the "we will replace your Note 7" window then what?? You are stuck with an inoperable phone and have to buy another one??
