You Can Now Exchange Your Recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Posted September 23, 2016

Samsung is stepping up its Note 7 recall efforts.

Original Galaxy Note 7 models were susceptible to exploding, with 92 cases of overheating and injury reported, according to the CPSC.

Samsung also says only 25 percent of affected Note7 units have been returned, so some of the new safe units can be sold to new customers.

It wasn't pretty and the entire situation unprecedented.

But the recall caused confusion as Samsung sent conflicting messages about whether it was safe to continue using the phone. Here's what you need to know.

Sprint subscribers can opt to pay $30.42 per month for 24 months or $349.99 for a two-year contract; an unlocked version of the phone is also available for $849.99. The company first tried to deal with the problem by initiating its own independent exchange program without government cooperation, but faced criticism from Consumer Reports and others for not initiating an official recall at that time.

The entire incident is unfortunate.
