USDoT Bans Galaxy Note 7 From Airplanes (Updated)

verizon logo galaxy note 7

Starting tomorrow (October 15) at noon Eastern, you will no longer be able to bring a Galaxy Note 7 on an airplane in the US. You should have already returned your Note 7 if you own one, but if for some reason you have not yet and try to fly, it’s curtains for you, buddy. 

According to a statement from the US Department of Transportation, anyone who possesses a Galaxy Note 7 “may not transport the device on their person, in carry-on baggage, or in checked baggage on flights to, from, or within the United States.” That’s right, you are not allowed to check a bag with a Note 7 or ship it as cargo either. No Note 7 should be on any plane going forward. And you should fully understand why, so please don’t even try it.

If you do try to bring one on a plan starting tomorrow, you could have the phone confiscated or you may even face a fine. Should you go the extra mile to “evade the ban” by packing your Note 7 in checked luggage, you may be subject to criminal prosecution. This is serious, folks.

Also, if an airline representative sees that you are in possession of a Note 7, you will not be permitted to board the airline until you get rid of it. Again, just get rid of the damn thing, so we can all move on and fly safely without worrying about exploding phones.

If you have not yet returned your Note 7, you can find all of the instructions out on how to do so here.

UPDATE:  Samsung has issued the following statement in response to the USDoT news–

“Samsung, together with carriers, is working to communicate the U.S. Department of Transportation’s new order to ban all Galaxy Note7 devices in carry-on and checked baggage on flights. We have encouraged airlines to issue similar communications directly to their passengers. Any Galaxy Note7 owner should visit their carrier and retail store to participate in the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program now. We realize this is an inconvenience but your safety has to remain our top priority.”

  • sgoldman8

    Just “upgraded” to the s7 edge and one of my favorite features from the note 7 is missing – the drop down menu for Bluetooth and WiFi on the notification bar. I thought this would just be part of the most recent Android update but I guess not. Anyone know how to get this or a good app for a work around? I also can’t believe it didn’t have content scaling but I did find the work around for that with the nova launcher

    • hackintosh777

      I believe installing Good Lock through Galaxy Apps will give you back the feature. It will also be part of the Nougat update when that reaches you.

      • sgoldman8

        Thanks! I’m surprised there aren’t more options with this app as it seems like it could be so much better, but it solves that issue perfectly. I’ll probably drop it when Nougat is released but I’ll definitely be keeping it until then unless it is a bigger batter drain than expected. Thanks for the help.

  • The Doctor

    The people who hold onto their Note7s at this point are absolute and complete morons.

  • t0ked

    People will say what they will. I still don’t think vast majority of people will remember this early next year when the S8 hits shelves. We will, not the general pop. We were going to replace the M8 with a note but decided to go with the pixel xl. I’ll likely upgrade to the S8, best of both worlds! This S7 is my first Sammy phone and really do think it’s the best phone I’ve ever owned.

    Between me and my gf, she has the m8, a work iphone 6s and my S7. Everytime we grab my S7 because it has the faster, better camera, better screen, and it didn’t really matter that the iphone launches yelp half a second faster (I always laugh at that comparison) cause once it’s open, the results come up just as quickly. We both just find it to be a better phone.

  • jacob lewis

    It’s karma for removing the ir blaster and not having a removable battery. Wouldn’t it have been better to replace the batteries than the whole phone? Come on Samsung.

    • Godzilla

      The problem isnt just, or might not be at all, the batteries. The replacement units used batts from a totally different vendor which points to more issues than just the batts themselves.

  • Chris K

    Just ordered 2 Pixel XL phones for the Note 7 replacement. Wasn’t a Samsung issue as much as an old phone issue. If I am spending car payment type money for a phone, then I want recent tech, not old tech.

    • KleenDroid

      How did you do that? I was put on a waiting list and wouldn’t get the phone for about 3 months.

      Are you with Verizon?

      • Chris K

        Through Verizon. It says delivery on the 28th? I am hoping that’s a legit date cause I have to fly out the day after.

        • KleenDroid

          This is the first time I miss being on Verizon. Wish I could have picked up the Pixel more quickly.

          I really don’t like these carrier specific phones. And I bet Google wishes they had the Pixel available for all the screwed Note owners.

          Guaranteed I would game purchased the Pixel but don’t want to wait 3 months. Had to go with the Edge. 🙁

          Hope you enjoy it, is like to hear what you think after you get it.

      • Godzilla

        The XL silver 128s randomly showed up available a couple nights ago and a few people like myself were able to get them ordered.

  • Wes

    I flew on Virgin Atlantic this morning and they were checking if anyone had a Galaxy Note 7. Granted, they weren’t physically checking each phone…it was more of an honor system. But they were strong with their words – stating that if anyone is found with a Note 7, they will encounter problems with security.

  • ckeegan

    So I traded mine in for the S7 Edge, and I am not a fan. They better get something else out, and give those of us a deal who had to put up with this crap. Yes, above and beyond the $100.

    • Wes

      I agree with you. Not sure how the mobile carriers would handle it, but definitely Samsung should consider some sort of special offer or opportunity to Note 7 customers (particularly those who pre-ordered) on whatever upcoming device they develop.

      • hkklife

        What can they do? The lead time for a modern smartphone is 14-18 months from initial design to retail shelves. They’d have to design a phone, test the heck out of it, negotiate with suppliers, get it approved by the carriers and the FCC etc etc. No way. The best we can hope for is that they have the GS8 in the pipeline and will take every step to make sure it ships ROCK-SOLID in every way.

        As an interim step, however, it WOULD be nice to see them release a special edition GS7 Edge with 64GB storage and a Snapdragon 821. Nougat pre-installed would be icing on the cake but that’s not likely to happen. I have gotten spoiled by 4/64 on my V10 and I would hate to go back down to anything less.

    • Godzilla

      Not likely, you already accepted the 100 dollars. Now samsung will have the attitude that they owe you nothing.

  • Денис Мартынов
  • trevorsalienarms

    Have been actively trying to get rid of mine for the last two days. None of the Verizon stores near me have any acceptable (to me) replacement devices in stock. Called vzw corporate, they have no idea when theyll get more stock, literally told me sorry, call back next week and check. Called Samsung, they were apologetic but of no help either. So, looks like Im going back to a Note 5, as the S7 Edge is backordered, and nothing else is even remotely appealing at this point. This whole debacle is just a mess.

    • Wes

      What kind of device are you looking into getting? Would they consider placing one on order for you as soon as they have in stock and ship it over? In my case, AT&T was trying to make me switch out at a store – even though I was in Europe at the time and I had originally pre-ordered online. I thought it was comical they were telling me the switch had to be in person since I had a phone in possession and would mean I would have “two phones at the same time.”

      It was fine for them when I pre-ordered and still had my old iPhone 6 at the time. Regardless, sorry to hear you’re having a headache in getting a new phone.

    • Godzilla

      Do what I did. Just get a full refund and use a Moto G until you can get what you truly want. Then the moto G is a good backup phone

  • Orlando aka Pixel XL

    This is off topic but isn’t Samsung still making a decent amount of money from moving users to their S7 Edge lineup? BTW, this isn’t a weak sorry company that will buckle after this type of issue…All they need to do is make a crazy s8 and Note 8 and be right back in the game. They just have to make sure the new models are on tip top shape…Honestly, this is only helping Google and Apple, LG and HTC aren’t going to take advantage of all of this…

  • Ray

    I’m currently in a argument with some idiot who is trying to justify why he is keeping his, and he says oh its no big deal were all just hatting on him.

    • BobButtons

      Is there where you see how many hats you can put on him before they fall off?

  • geocab

    I just hope the airport staff will be smart enough to recognize a Note 7 and not think any Galaxy is an N7.

    • Joe

      I was on a flight last week and they just said: per FAA rules, if you have a Samsung Galaxy 7, please power it down and do not charge it.

      So, no, they won’t be smart enough to recognize a Note 7. They’ll just see Samsung + phone = explosion

  • Wes

    Of course this happens to me while I’m in Europe and agreed to carry my phone (powered off) back home so I can resolve this once I’m back. And I just so happen to be returning tomorrow, too. Go figure – CNN Money has an article that FedEx, UPS and USPS won’t allow the device to be shipped via air. UK’s Royal Mail either.

    Good grief.

    • Darrell Malloy

      Same thing for me. I’m in Mexico and flying back tomorrow. This whole second recall started since I’ve been gone. Now I’ve got to figure out how to get my phone home so I can return it again…

      • Wes

        Sorry to hear you’re going through the same thing, Darrell. I hung up with AT&T just now. They’re completely at a loss and unsure how to proceed. The manager on the call stated I will receive an email as soon as they have more information. But it’s already close to 11:30 PM for me here and my flight is early tomorrow morning. I stated I’d call within the hour if I haven’t heard from them.

        In your situation, the only way I can see it possibly reaching home is by a private courier service that can take it via ground. Or having it sent to a border town and picking it up again somehow. But I’m just guessing at this point.

    • needa

      I’d overnight it. Buy the cheapest phone you can find so you can mail it back in a smartphone box. You never know if yours will be picked for x-ray. It for sure will get x-rayed at the airport.

      • Wes

        There’s no way to overnight. It’s 11:18 PM here in London. Everything is closed and since this past Wednesday the major courier services have banned air travel for the phone (only FedEx accepts Ground Delivery from a carrier’s store…and there are no AT&T stores here).

    • Murphy

      I don’t feel sorry for any of you… unless you have been on vacation for months, your phone should have been returned already, especially with the mounting reports. Thanks for putting everyone’s lives at risk. Stop using the phone!

      • Wes

        Feeling is mutual – perhaps even less on my part since I have no idea who you are. I can only speak on my behalf. I have been in Europe for a little over a week. Before flying out, I went to AT&T to see if there’s anything I can do since I knew I would be out of the country for a bit. Per AT&T, because they had no information from Samsung, they couldn’t switch my device or give me a refund. At that moment, I was in possession of a ‘new’ device (because I switched right after the recall) and only a small handful of incidents occurred with the new Note7s.

        Once in Europe, I saw the news that Samsung sent out. I followed instructions and shut my phone down. Then AT&T told me I had to turn in my phone in person…I couldn’t even ship it back. So yeah…I don’t care how you feel. And I have stopped using the phone.

        • jimt

          There is no AT&T in Europe I take it.

          • Wes

            There’s no AT&T per se, but my connection would work with the other local carriers here. It used to be Orange, but they changed names a while back and the name escapes me right now. Either way, I was using my phone up until I received instructions to power off…even though I knew my phone was likely one of the good ones considering its temperature has always been consistent and I have it on all the time.

        • Murphy

          Why did you even take it, if you didn’t need it?

          • Chris

            Why take your $800 phone that you can use to check emails, Facebook and what have you to another country? Be real. Obviously he has taken all of the precautions and is not one of the people that kept the phone and doesn’t care about other people.

          • Wes

            I took the phone because up until that time, there was no statement from Samsung nor At&T stating otherwise. My phone, just like the first Note 7, worked perfectly fine and never even got hot at any point. I heeded any and all instructions as they came about. And FYI, there are international talk/data plans. So yeah, I was using the phone and I did need it.

        • jimt

          Maybe you can email Samsung and ask what to do.

      • Ryan

        I got the official message from Verizon indicating I could exchange my Note 7 on 10/12, so I tried to order new devices online but they’ve had this bug for like 2 years now because they entered the wrong device ID with one of our S4’s so I couldn’t order online. I then called and ordered new devices but the S7 edges were back ordered and just shipped today and I won’t get them until Tuesday. I’ve already had 8+ phone calls with verizon in the past month dealing with this, I have been charged $60 in upgrade fees even though I was exchanging my device and have visited Verizon stores 4 times waiting for hours at a time with a 3 year old. Sorry if I don’t have my new device TODAY but I’m working on it and have been working on it for over a month. Thanks for preaching to all of us though, I appreciate it as it’s keeping me grounded as this whole experience has been so much fun!

    • jimt

      Maybe you can get permission to tear the back off and pull the battery and dispose of it somewhere safe then bring the rest to trade back in. But may be too late to do something like that. Where did you buy it? you might get in touch with them and ask what to do. That phone is pretty well glued together, though.

      • Wes

        I bought it in the States where I live. I was in Europe for business and am returning tomorrow. Can’t take it on the plane and I don’t necessarily have the tools to break the battery out right now. I’m kinda SOL at the moment really.

        • jimt

          Maybe you could use a knife and a rock. I don’t think it has to be pretty.

        • jimt

          There is a link at the bottom of the info in the article. There are some phone numbers, etc. You should look at that if you haven’t yet.

          • Wes

            I did. But thanks for the suggestion. I just received a response from AT&T. They’re telling me to power it off and leave it either at the hotel or airport (notify either). AT&T won’t charge my account for the phone and once back home, I can continue with the process of getting a replacement. Everything’s been notated in my account.

            It’s a weird situation…for both consumer and carrier. I feel more relieved now that AT&T understands my challenge and isn’t billing me for not having a Note 7 to replace.

          • jimt

            Sounds good, Have a nice flight.

        • Murphy

          When is your flight? The ban doesn’t take effect until noon tomorrow. You might be on a plane before then.

          • Wes

            I thought about that. Technically I’ll be over the ocean when it’s noon on the east coast. But once I land, I have a connection and would need to go through customs. So the airport can notice it at that time.

            I prefer not to risk missing a flight by getting kicked off a flight or receive a fine by trying to be sneaky for a phone that is dead on arrival. Luckily AT&T understood my issue and already instructed me to leave it either with the hotel or the airport. It’ll need to be discarded anyway.

          • Murphy

            Yeah, just make sure you back up everything to a laptop or whatnot. Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like a d*ck earlier but as an employee of an airline, we take safety seriously.

          • Wes

            No worries, Murphy. You didn’t sound mean-spirited. I myself have just been rattled this evening while I tried to figure this crap out. So I may have come off with an attitude. And I understand your concern for safety. It’s appreciated very much so.

    • Wes

      Just received an update from AT&T. There’s nothing I can do really…And they realize this. I’ve been told to simply either leave the phone at the hotel powered off or turn it in at the airport when I arrive in the morning. Either way, I’m returning home without a phone. AT&T will not be charging me for this and it’s been notated in my account.

      Well, that’s something…

      • Greyhame

        Damn.

      • Jaymus Lonestar

        I hope it all works out for you. Hopefully though you also were able to get some conformation in writing (email) or at the very least the name and a way to directly contact the person you spoke with. I’ve unfortunately been burned in the past by the so called “account notations”.

        Good luck.

  • Marc Perrusquia

    Samsung is such a joke.

    • MicroNix

      Much like your posts.

      • Marc Perrusquia

        1/10 try again.

  • cdm283813

    Seen this coming a mile away. Next it’s going to be movie theaters and amusement parks so Samsung is going to have to cripple the device on purpose to make hardheaded people return the device. So the next time you connect to WIFI kiss that bad boy good bye.

    I wish I had a new in box Note 7. 30 years from now once Samsung servers forget out the phone (if their still around), it’s going to be worth tons of cash.

    • Marc Perrusquia

      No it’s not. Nobody will want to own a potential bomb.

      • cdm283813

        Perfect reason why it will be a collectors item. Vast majority of people returned it because it’s “a potential bomb” and the carriers were told to stop selling them. Hours later Samsung confirmed that product and sales have stopped. That only leaves a small window for new replacements or orders from carriers making their way to customers.

        There are always people wanting something that is extremely rare. A unopened Note 7 is one of them. Keyword being unopened because any opened one’s are indeed worthless.

    • Tyler Durden

      Even when it’s off it happens so good luck keeping it longer than a year.

      • cdm283813

        It would be worth even more. Again the phone has to be unopened. I’ve only heard opened/used phones going up in smoke, not unused new in box.
        I would actually keep the unopened phone in a lipo charging bag just in case. Their made for that purpose when charging RC batteries.

  • Orion

    Yet there will still be idiots keeping their phones and acting like it’s some form of “moral victory” smh.

    “You should have already returned your Note 7 if you own one, but if for some reason you have not yet and try to fly, it’s curtains for you, buddy”.

  • HollowLog

    So what keeps someone from putting a case on their phone? It’s not immediately distinguishable from a Note 5 really.

    • JSo

      It’s banned. They will check it

      • HollowLog

        So do you think they will be taking all Samsung phones out of their cases? I know I am being hyperbolic, but I also don’t trust TSA to be able to distinguish one phone from another on a glance.

        • JSo

          If it’s a banned item, they will be trained to tell the difference. I don’t think they take that stuff lightly. The easiest way to tell it apart is the USB C port. If its not USB C, it’s not a Note 7. Shouldn’t have to take it out of the case for that

          • Mele Kalikimaka

            This is the TSA we’re talking about. No amount of ineptitude should surprise you.

          • HollowLog

            THIS is my point.

          • JSo

            Well if people are that stupid to try and sneak it through and get caught, they say they can be charged with criminal charges and fines. So is it that important to people?

          • Aaron

            I’ll be lucky if they don’t confiscate my 6p. It’s large and has a USB-C port.

          • Murphy

            But a myriad of differences, like the huge fingerprint scanner on the back, that even with a case, can be recognized.

          • Aaron

            I don’t know how much you fly, so I’ll just give it to you straight. The TSA is overworked and most likely underpaid. They screen thousands of people in a day. This will slow down those screenings, thus making travelers more hostile, thus making them more disgruntled and hostile. Arguing with them only exacerbates the problem. They don’t have time to listen to reason. And they won’t undergo a lot of training as to what devices are unsafe.

            And as for device misidentification, my daughter and her boyfriend recently took a flight where the attendant informed passengers that they were to power off and not use their iPhone 7’s. When I tried to correct them, they said no, that it was in fact the iPhone that the attendant said.

          • Murphy

            I work for an airline.

          • Aaron

            Then I feel for you. For your sake I hope it’s at a smaller airport and not a major hub. The TSA at those are the worst.

          • Murphy

            I understand your frustrations with the TSA. Trust me, they annoy me to no end. But one of the ‘replacement’ Note 7s caught fire on the very airline I work for. This phone was DOA. It’s not going to be supported in the future. I don’t feel sorry one bit for anyone trying to confiscate these things on an airplane, and getting caught. It’s been in the news forever. Get rid of the phone, you won’t have any problems.

          • Aaron

            We don’t have a problem. I don’t have a Note 7, and would have traded it in already if I did. I have a Nexus 6P. I just don’t have much confidence in the TSA to be well informed (or even to care) enough to get it right. I’m afraid they are just going to play fast and loose with what they believe is a Note 7 and just start randomly confiscating phones. Anything over 5 inches will be subject to unnecessary hassle. And God help anybody with Samsung on their phone.

    • cdm283813

      If you get caught you will face a hefty fine. And if that sucker does go up in flames (especially while in flight locked away in a suitcase) expect all hell to rain down on you. People need to take these warnings seriously.

    • GJV

      Perhaps the fear of a flaming death in a plummeting aluminum tube?

  • Duffman

    For those that think they’ll be able to hang onto theirs… Good luck!

  • Tyler Durden

    Bet everybody that has one is still excited to keep it. /s

    • Paul Hansen

      As soon as my pixel shows up this is going back. No immediate travel plans so I’m not terribly concerned. It’s unfortunate that this happened because it’s the first device I’ve liked wholistically in a while barring the average speaker. Oh well.

      • Trav

        same for me

      • Tyler Durden

        I don’t even see the appeal of it – to each their own. That’s goes for both the Pixel and Note 7.

        • Greyhame

          Just like many don’t see the appeal of an iPhone and it’s more limited OS.

  • EdubE24

    Spoke with a friend last night who has tried to return his to Best Buy twice. Its been a miserable experience for him. He asked what phones I would recommend, I said the S7 edge since our other friend loves his. Not a chance, Samsung has lost him forever.

    • Tyler Durden

      That’s a shame cause the S7 Edge is the best phone in years. Got a friend to upgrade from his S5 finally.

      • EdubE24

        I’m sure it may be, but he’ll never know. And I’m guessing he won’t be the only one to say never again.

      • Santos

        Is it that much better than the regular S7?

        • Tyler Durden

          Battery and display size, yes

    • Jdub174

      I didnt have any problems returning mine to BB,full refund and also got my money back from Amazon for the case. Kept the charger too..

      Best buy was no hassle yesterday for me

    • PoisonApple31

      Best Buy was an easy return for me both times!

  • Turb0wned

    What an embarrassment Samsung and for non techy people it’s an embarrassment to Android to.

    • [A]dri[A]n

      While it is embarrassing for Samsung, it really won’t effect them to be honest. They’re still gonna sell a crap load of phones and I’m sure they won’t even feel it financially with all the money they make from all their different products. Also, Android in itself has nothing to do with it, so not sure why it would be embarrassing for Android.

      • Turb0wned

        Because a lot of non techy people think Samsung is Android. That’s a fact.

        • Tyler Durden

          “Galaxy is so much better than iPhone”
          Rather take a nail to my skull than ever read/hear that again.

          • Turb0wned

            Aside from the fires, the Note 7 is much better than the IPhone… Typing this on my iPhone 7 Plus.

          • Tyler Durden

            Who said anything about that?
            I was responding to you saying Galaxy is Android.
            But I disagree, outside of Android devices, the 7+ is the most powerful, well built, optimized phone I’ve used. Note 7 was trash after using it.

            Ahhhh ok.

            I have to disagree. Yes the iPhone is smoother and well optimized but no way in hell do I like it more than the Note 7.

            Note 7 battery sucked
            Performance sucked
            USB Type C is massively overhyped
            Huge step back from a S7 Edge

            that’s irrelevant and baseless soooo

          • MadJoe

            I’ve owned both the Note 7 and S7 Edge, and no, that isn’t the end of the discussion. You’re a notorious troll, so I don’t know why I’m even bothering, but the Note 7 absolutely destroys the S7 Edge in every single respect except not catching fire (which I admit is pretty huge), so to say the Note 7 is trash after using the S7 Edge is just poor judgement.

          • Tyler Durden

            Hows it better? Same specs so how is it better?

          • MadJoe

            Specs are, as you must know, irrelevant. A modern device is going to have good specs, but it’s more than just specs that make it . Things the Edge does worse than the Note 7: S-Pen (obviously), in-hand feel, UI aesthetics and fluidity, screen size, onboard storage (32GB vs the Note’s 64GB), Edge functions (Note had more and more useful), always on display (the Note’s showed notifications and was more customizable), the Note 7’s edges didn’t register inadvertent touches nearly as often as the Edge’s edges do, and I’ve found battery life to be about the same. Those are just off the top of my head.

            Hows the headphone jack on the iPhone 7?

          • Tyler Durden

            never used it before soooo

            I can’t help but wonder if those upvotes are more for the thought of the nail going in your skull. ;-P

          No, non-techy people would think Samsung and/or Galaxy and not Android.

      • Brian Trahan

        Did you miss the article where it said they will loose $3 Billion on this?

        • TypoCorrecto

          It’ll hurt but they’ll recover.

        • [A]dri[A]n

          And I’m sure that’s a “bump in the road” for a tech giant like Samsung.

        • Bubba Jones

          It is spelled lose, as in lost and losing. Not loose as in something not tight.

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      Indeed. Not just the jokes at the expense of android, but also the general public will have this animosity towards Android now

        The public isn’t going to have animosity toward Android. That’s just silly. The words “Samsung” and “Galaxy” are what is stamped all over this recall. And its not like they stuck people with a phone that starts on fire and told them live with it. Its been recalled with a full refund for a phone people have been using. Non techy people know this phone as a Galaxy, not an Android device.

            Well said.

          • hkklife

            Yep, to us techies, 2016 was a downer of a year for Android in general. This is massively damaging to the only truly profitable Android hardware manufacturer and is certain to do terrible things to Samsung & Android’s marketshare. I know of 3 people already (2 of whom were planning to get a Note 7, 1 of which was an existing GS6 owner) who went with an iPhone 7 Plus or 6S Plus as a result of this.

          • MicroNix

            I wouldn’t say that about Samsung or Android. What about their wildly successful S-series? The S7 Edge was a smashing hit for 2016. Or do you have some kind of perception that the Galaxy Note actually outsells the S-series?

        • thereasoner

          Agree. People I talk to at work about tech don’t even know what Android is, they do know what a Samsung phone is though.

      Galaxy Note 7 was MURDERED by puncturing its displays where battery is and then HYPING it up through media.
      The fire destroys/heat the evidence.

        Just because you can recreate the failure does not make your method the one that caused it.

    • john lens

      Im glad that Note 7 is annihilated so that us, S7 and S7 Edge owners will get more attention and updates! Muahahaha!

    • enigmaco

      Yes it is unfortunately it makes the platform as a whole look bad to those who are not as informed as the others.
