“Sprint is working collaboratively with Samsung to better understand the most recent concerns regarding replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is also investigating the Note 7 replacement device. At this time, CPSC has not specifically said if customers should or should not use the replacement model. If a Sprint customer with a replacement Note 7 has any concerns regarding their device, we will exchange it for any other device at any Sprint retail store during the investigation window. We will provide additional information when the investigation has concluded.”
Time to scrap the Note 7 in my opinion. The name is tainted, a sign of rushed manufacturing and a complete embarrassment at this point. If the mobile operators are doing everything they can to get anything but the Note 7 in the hands of their customers, it really has nowhere to go.
