T-Mobile rolling out software update that kills Galaxy Note 7's charging capability
After refusing to do Samsung's bidding, Verizon agreed to released the update. Bottom line is all three major carriers in the country, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, will soon release similar updates to Galaxy Note 7 phones registered on their networks.
Today, T-Mobile announced it has started to roll out an update to Galaxy Note 7 phablets, and mentioned it on the phone's support page. So, beginning December 27, firmware version N930TUVU2APL2 is being pushed to T-Mobile Galaxy Note 7 phones.
The official changelong mentions that the update will send an on-screen notification about the recall with action steps to take. Aside from that, the update will prevent the charge ability of the Galaxy Note 7.
This is one of the last steps taken by Samsung in its attempt to have all Galaxy Note 7 phones sold in the United States returned. AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will begin pushing the update in the coming days as well, so if you haven't yet returned your Galaxy Note 7, now would be a good time to do it.
