Anonym, 12 Sep 2016The story is now debunked, still I've got mixed feelings about this (should it ever come to pl... morewell just keep in mind that the carriers can disable ur imei at any time (say when u get robbed for example) and even when there're ways to go around (like changing the IMEI from a PC) the concept is the same, my point is that they won't disable any phone unless it's absolutely necesary and (probably/hopefully) with ur permission... so dont take it out of proportion ^_^
The story is now debunked, still I've got mixed feelings about this (should it ever come to place). By one hand there's human safety at stake, by the other we come to know there's an open door to kill your phone at manufacturer's will -- and this is something I am not willing to tolerate.
Ive been using the Note 7 since the 30th of August. Luckily it hasnt exploded, but the phone is far superior to any handset on the market. I work in a mobile phone store and have experience with all the handsets. Taking away the political bias of some users on this site, the Note 7 is an extremely powerful handset all round. Thx

It's a damage control and not care for the user.....
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Who still want to buy it even after they release the safe N7 later?I do. I like the phone, but I never buys the 1st set of mobiles. I always buys afret 3-4 months after release.
so I know all the problems that the phone has
Sunny-S, 12 Sep 2016Though all the mess, I highly appreciate Sammy for keeping customer safety must. I don't feel ... moreNo, a responsible move is to make sure you won't make such a "misstake" (Neglecting battery quality). No "fix" it "responsibly" after the fact. It won't fix people's injuries, material losses or even the inconveniece from having to return their phone.
Though all the mess, I highly appreciate Sammy for keeping customer safety must. I don't feel many flagship companies would go into such a massive recall to fix an issue. Furthermore, Sammy has won its trust as a responsible company that can bravely stand before all and announce "we have a defective flagship". Hats off Sammy.... My next device the Note 7 (reborn).
They have no choice but to do this. The recall is now known everywhere. Yet people still take the risk and use it. EVERYDAy there is new news I'd note 7s catching fire. Example the Florida mans jeep, caught fire. The South Carolina home suspected from the note 7. Yesterday it was the 6 year old boy watching a video on the note 7 in New York. Samsing knows if people continue to use it, more exploding note 7 news will come out further making that company look as bad as ever. Negligence on the consumer end! Just stop using it until they release a new batch.
its a shame for a flagship phone specially the one from Samsung! Am an s7 edge user and To be honest it's a great phone! but after this event even am concerned about my phone.
A Note 4 user, 12 Sep 2016Samsung wouldn't resort to this action if SAMSUNG ITSELF were not stubborn.
we have been pr... moreIf its removable.. Then they detect that removable is faulty.. Ur phone will still be deactivated. Else ppl will still fear it.. Even if u deny and say u replace it.. People will still fear it.
It solve nothing.
Who still want to buy it even after they release the safe N7 later?
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Samsung Fans: Samsung wouldn't resort to this action if you were not stubborn. They know that ... moreSamsung wouldn't resort to this action if SAMSUNG ITSELF were not stubborn.
we have been protesting against the enforcement of the non-removable battery since ages.
if the battery were removable, this would not have happened.
Samsung needs to stop being stubborn, and bring the REMOVABLE BATTERY BACK.
mir, 12 Sep 2016They are blowing this (pun intended) way out of proportion.apples money= paid media ?
How otherwise could people be held in a 3.5 and 4 inch lcd mindset for years after the industry had moved on, yet be quoted..as saying they thought it was the best size, then immediately be turned to say..bigger is better when apple made a bigger screen . There must be big apple bucks, in perpetually printing negative info regarding apples biggest competitor, where was the endless cover of , 500m Italian tax fraud, 100n ebook price rigging scandal, and the 13billion plus 6billion Irish tax evasion scandal, wow now all that adds up to a story, wonder whats under the tip of the iceberg. No wonder they're rich.
That's amazing coming from a company like Samsung. I mean they are going to such difficulty to recall their phones.
Believe me, even though Apple fanboys would comment otherwise (myself owning every iPhone since 3GS), this is amazing.
Recalls, remote locking just for the safety or anything else, I am impressed. And believe me, just cause of this, my next phones going to be the next Note (Cause I already bought the V20).
Reason behind this is ofcourse they want the ban on flights etc to be lifted and this is the only way they can get the "approved" stamp of their phone again across the board.
BeYourSelf1, 12 Sep 2016then you will be such an idiot for keeping this bomb with you ...I don't have Note 7, but I don't want companies to have ANY control over MY device.
