Why should they suffer? In their eyes, they have solved the problem although it might not retain the original Note 7 design but from a safety point of view there is no problems. Samsung should check if default battery is being used if at all possible before disabling the unit from charging or worse. Do not assume people's Note 7 are being powered by default samsung battery!
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2016All Note 7 users should disable all automatic updates. Also, they should change the IMEI.what if the new randomised IMEI is already used in another phone. and when the company finally finds that number. you'll shut someone else's phone because you're too careless to return it?
I mean sure. I've held a note 7 (trial model) and it's a frigging AWESOME phone. but it's not worth the hassle if the company wants it back at all costs.

I had a problem when I had the ancient s3 that the battery couldn't obtain power. and until I've gone to fix it. I've used external battery to power it. looks awkward. but it's awesome to slam on it a 9kmAh battery.

(yeah. couldn't have any other word for a PDA) if you like the original rom. if not. swap rom and save yourself from the penalties. or swap carrier to someone who doesn't block IMEI. (I wouldn't recommend any of this. I've been in Dutyfree and even held the note 7. it's AMAZINGLY BREATHAEKER looks. but not worth the hassle swapping from note 5 if they are THAT desperate. (and it was BEFORE the recall))
What if someone uses extended battery covers will it work? Samsung just diable all Note7 by end of this year

foneluva, 10 Dec 2016So you using Note 7 without all the Note features and updates.CoolI running a custom rom and it and everything works and all features works. There nothing wrong with my phone. I don't intend to return it or exchange it. But I will do is sell it to a collector for the right amount of money since my phone is now very rare to get.

If Verizon delayed this, they would be liable if something happened. Maybe the Verizon lawyers were just on vacation and missed the memo. I'm sure they would soon act after the legal department put two and two together.
Peter, 09 Dec 2016Kudos to Verizon. This is wrong from Samsung to announce this measure now and disable the Note... moreI'm no fan of Samsung, but I have to applaud Samsung for doing this above and beyond.
You mentioned holiday season. Imagine the risk when the phone explodes during the holiday crowd. It would be a total nightmare for Samsung, and as a company, they have to act to mitigate the risk. No matter how slim that chance is, it's a chance that Samsung cannot take unless they want their brand to be buried for good.
Samsung has recalled the phone, and even their engineers have acknowledged the risk. There is zero logic in keeping the phone and not exchanging it.
My guess is that only idiotic Trump supporters that still own and use these phones. Typical Americans.
