Verizon and T-Mobile follow AT&T to halt the sales of Note 7
After AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are the next US carriers to halt the sales of Note 7 because of the latest accidents involving replacement Note 7 phones. If you own the latest Note phone and worried about it, then all three of those carriers will exchange your phone with another phone from Samsung or from other manufacturers. This means, if you love to use Samsung phones, you can get S7 or S7 Edge. Otherwise, you have the opportunity to switch the brands.
T-Mobile published a statements about the issue saying;
While Samsung investigates multiple reports of issues, T-Mobile is suspending all sales of the new Note7 and exchanges for replacement Note7 devices.
Customers can still bring their recalled Note7 or the new replacement Note7, along with accessories they purchased from T-Mobile, to a T-Mobile store for a full refund and choose from any device in T-Mobile’s inventory. We’ll waive any restocking charges, and customers who purchased during pre-order can keep the free Netflix subscription and Gear Fit or SD card they received.
Customers should visit a T-Mobile retail store to begin the return process. For additional questions, customers can call our customer care line at 1-844-275-9309.
Again, we encourage customers to stop using and power down their recalled devices and return them to T-Mobile.
To help offset any additional costs our customers may have incurred throughout this process, anyone who returns their recalled Note7 will automatically receive a one-time $25 credit on their T-Mobile bill within two bill cycles
Verizon, on the other hand, also made an officially announcement, but to TheVerge
Samsung is working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to investigate the safety of replacement Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones. While the investigation is underway, Verizon is suspending the exchange of replacement Note7 smartphones. Any Verizon customer concerned about the safety of their replacement Note7 smartphone may take it back to the original point of purchase to exchange it for another smartphone. Verizon online customers may also exchange their replacement Note7 smartphones at Verizon stores.
As we go over in every single article about Note 7, there is no need for you to take a danger by using your Note 7. Even if you love it, there is a high chance for it to explode by catching fire. Furthermore, all major carriers in US accept exchanging Note 7 with another phone for free.
