Samsung: 500,000 new Galaxy Note 7 units arrive in the states

We're not privy to how Samsung is dividing up these units. We did receive a tip from a PhoneArena reader today, who claimed to have chatted with a rep for T-Mobile. During the conversation, the T-Mobile rep said that new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units were in stock starting today.
Reportedly, one million Galaxy Note 7 phablets were rung up in the U.S. before the recall. Now, our math skills aren't what they used to be, but that would seem to indicate that you have a 50-50 shot of being able to have a 'safe' Samsung Galaxy Note 7 sent your way at this time. The box containing the new phones will carry a black square. The unit itself will have a green battery indicator as opposed to the white icon seen on the original models.
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh

Well I went to T-Mobile and the store opened 11 mins late. As soon as they saw people outside he said if yoi are exchanging Note 7s we wont have them until tomorrow (Wednesdsy). I left mine in the arvtonprevent them from taking mine, because Samsung says don't let anyone leave with a phone. But theybdidnt try to make anyone stay. Out of 11 people.outside, on 4 went in. He also said they didnt have any iPhones. So.people coild haven waiting for that too. But at least I knkw I could be getting 2 phones when they open up when they open at 10AM.

Luckly the states receive the exchange these days. Indonesia still has no news yet. They say it will be available by 30, but one of my friend who actually works inside Samsung Indonesia, they actually still dont know yet :(

So, replacements arrive, but no new devices will be sold? Or what was that about sales resuming on October 21st?

According to At&t if you bought the phone before September 15th you'll be able to receive a replacement tomorrow which I'll be doing. If you didn't purchase one you'll have to wait for October 21st.

If by explosive you mean they blow the competition out of the water, then you're right.

Ahh, the well-timed humor of Apple fanatics. Whenever I see comments about how rabid the "fandroids" are on this site, you're always sure to remind us of how pathetic you truly are. When I look back at all the people who claimed the Note 7 recall was a serious issue, I will always have you and your comedic genius to set me straight. Stay classy and hilarious my friend. (just kidding)

Samsung is doing a full recall and as sent out updates that limit the battery and ask you to change phone and power it down, this problem as now ended as Samsung as done the right thing, unlike Apple and the iPhone 6 Plus, they have an ongoing 2 year problem with bendgate/screendiseasegate
