Several mobile carriers are halting sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacements. Included in the move to halt sales are the four big mobile carriers in the U.S—AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon—and Best Buy. With it being confirmed that there will be no replacements for awhile, the phones should be turned in faster than last month’s recall.
The decision comes after Samsung announced it would be stopping production of replacements during a Consumer Product Safety Commission into the safety of the new handsets. The investigation was prompted after five replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones caught fire in the U.S.
As was the case last month when the first exploding batteries became an issue, it’s highly recommended that you turn off the Galaxy Note 7 and turn it back in for a refund from your carrier or store.
