U.S. Cellular stops selling the Galaxy Note 7 too

Since all four major carriers in the United States have already announced they will not sell the Galaxy Note 7 until further notice, it makes perfect sense for a fifth, U.S. Cellular to follow the pack.

In an official statement, U.S. Cellular confirmed that it will no longer offer the Galaxy Note 7 to its customers. On top of that, consumers who already own a replacement or the older version with faulty battery can now exchange them for any other device at the carrier's stores.

AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile have taken the same precautions last week and are now waiting for Samsung to complete its investigation on exploding replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones that we told you about in our previous reports.

In the meantime, the South Korean company issued an official statement warning consumers who own the Galaxy Note 7 to power it down and stop using it. If you're one of the many Galaxy Note 7 owners, the next steps you should follow is either exchange it for a different smartphone or simply ask for a refund.

This is a temporary solution until Samsung either issues a second Galaxy Note 7 global recall or provides a third replacement to those who remain loyal (is that even possible?).

I feel sad for Samsung and Note 7 users. Better luck next year, if there will be a Note 8 that is. [hypocrite trolls making fun of the issue in 3... 2.... 1....]

I feel sorry for Note users, but Samsung can suck it. After reading up on them.......oh boy.

I still feel sad for them, don't get me wrong, I'll feel the same if this happened to Apple or Sony, LG etc. It's not like they're a terrorist organization or something so that I would be happy that this happened to them. Sadly some idiots here celebrate Samsung's huge mistake.

How about those who bought it at they one? You expect them to have mutant powers and say "These Note 7s will explode in the future, I'll still buy it" I feel sad for those who lack intelligence just like you.

Users should ask for a refund.

Not only refund they should all file a class action lawsuit against samsung for risking their user life for just to beat apple by launching the device one month prior ,this is clearly unacceptable,and a clear case of negligence towards consumer safety

It was the peoples choice to keep the phone after the recall, it was their fault if their life was in danger. Samsung will be back next year with the s8 and note 8

I feel for the end user. Is not what you expect, when you spend over $700 for a phone. However, in terms of Samsung, hopefully this experience will make them a little more humble. Maybe, just maybe, they will mature and stop acting like bullies and adolescents.
