Just a week after the release date multiple reports surfaced that devices were catching on fire, exploding, and more. One Note 7 allegedly burned down a Jeep. It’s a dangerous situation, but Samsung has been upfront about it from the beginning.

On September 15th Samsung officially launched a new website with all the details. This page has Galaxy Note 7 recall replacement information, a tool to check the IMEI for faulty products, help, phone numbers to call and more.

New and safe Galaxy Note 7 smartphones will be available from all major carriers and retail stores in the US from September 21st. Samsung officially announced this date, and recommends all owners swap their phone out.

We originally heard the new Galaxy Note 7 release date is over a month away set for October 21st, but that isn’t the case. Verizon will sell anyone the Note 7 as we speak both online and in stores, and Sprint is taking orders online as well. Initially only replacements were available, but the Note 7 is readily available to all again. Buy it without worry, as it has been approved by the appropriate channels for use.

Apparently out of the 2.5 million devices manufactured, about 400,000 were sold in the first few weeks. Meaning the number of new devices needed to replace phones already sold isn’t as high as we all thought. Samsung already shipped new models to carriers, are giving out $25 gift cards or credit on users bill, and are trying to accommodate all problems.
