Verizon disagrees with Samsung
The plan Samsung has made to prevent the Galaxy Note 7 units from stop working in the US did not fit in the GSM operator Verizon’s plans. However, why Verizon does not want to kill the Note 7?
Earlier this week, Samsung had published an update to literally kill the Note 7 models that were still working in the US despite all the warnings.
Accordingly, with a special update to be published, the Note 7‘s ability to charge will be turned off and the devices will come to an unusable state once its battery is dead.
However, it seems like this plan Verizon, one of the major US GSM operators, didn’t like the plan at all. Today, Verizon announced that subscribers would not receive this patch. The company actually tend to believe that a dangerous phone which can put its owner’s life at danger may save them as well.
According to Verizon’s assessment, there is a risk that customers who do not have another phone than Note 7 in their homes will lose their only chance to reach to the ambulance or other family members in an emergency.
Hence, Samsung wants to find another solution for the Verizon Note 7s and has officially announced that it will not publish the patch that will make the phones inoperable.
