Despite Second Recall, 285,000 Phones Have Not Been Returned

Samsung, in an attempt to have the remaining 285,000 Samsung Note 7 phones returned, after being blamed to be fire-starters, states the company has a few new tricks it is ready to try. The phones have been deemed to be a fire hazard due to fire risks, resulting in the phones being banned from airplanes.

According to a Samsung-representative the company is making plans to release a software update in the next few days. This will limit the Note 7’s ability to charge beyond 60 percent. The phone will also issue reminders each time the phone is charged, turned on or rebooted.

Samsung started the recall after discovering the batteries in some Galaxy Note 7 have exploded while charging. The company reported, “As of today, nearly 85 percent of all recalled Galaxy Note 7 devices have been replaced through the U.S. Note 7 Refund and Exchange Program.” The recall involves approximately 1.9 million phones in the United States. This indicates that approximately 1,615,000 phones have been returned. The Samsung representative said the majority of people returning their Note 7 phones have decided on another smartphone in the Samsung lineup.

    every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the
    exact same comment. There has to be a way you can remove me
    from that service? Many thanks!

  10. I must express appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of setting. Because of surfing around throughout the the web and coming across recommendations that were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Living devoid of the answers to the problems you’ve fixed through the report is a critical case, and the ones which may have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered the blog. Your natural talent and kindness in touching all the stuff was useful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for your reliable and amazing guide. I won’t think twice to recommend the sites to anybody who needs and wants recommendations about this situation.
