This recall is disappointing, just when my device is setup how I want, I got a cool skin applied that's a waste of $30 and battery life lately has been really good too, I don't want to change it but of course I will IF we are really getting "different" devices. I wish they could just tell us if our existing ones were affected or not.
This is what Mobile Syrup is saying: http://mobilesyrup.com/2016/09/02/canadian-carriers-suspend-sales-of-the-galaxy-note-7-following-rec...
While Rogers shared, “After being notified by Samsung that they have stopped selling the Galaxy Note 7 due to reported safety issues, we immediately suspended shipments and sales of the device in all our stores and through our website. Samsung is working on a replacement program and we’ll continue to work with them to ensure the process is seamless for our customers. In the meantime, customers can visit their nearest Rogers store to exchange their Note 7 or get a loaner device.”
I wonder if switching to a S7E would mean I could still keep my Gear Fit 2, trade in credit and SD card + get some credit back on the difference of the phone. Likely not lol
No way I'm getting a loaner phone and then getting another new Note 7 that's way too much setup involved so either wait or switch.
I have the same concern. It took me 1 full day to set the phone up to what I want and now is working so good.
I always get the new phone, then transferred all contents/data/files to my new phone, cross check them if I had missed something until 100% sure, then factory reset the old one for sale. But for this case, I think we need to give back the phone first in order to get a new one. Do you have a better way to make sure everything can be transferred 100%? Google and Samsung back up is good but some apps they required seprate back up. If I forgot and the phone is returned, I have no back up phone to work on. This recall is a bit painful.
I also laugh at my friend about their Iphone saying lack of new tech and today they called me and makes fun of me asking if I'm still alive...:(
