Samsung's IMEI checker for dangerous Note 7 units is finally up!
The principle is really simple — just follow the link below this article, enter your phone's IMEI in the designated field, and see the results. If it is equipped with one of the batteries, which Samsung deems potentially dangerous, you will be advised to return the device and wait for a replacement (those should ship before the 21st of September, so there's no reason not to opt for one).
Your Note 7's IMEI number is located on the original box the device came with, on the back of the actual phone, or in your Settings menu (Settings → About Phone → Status → IMEI Information).
