Just a quick heads-up, T-Mobile Galaxy Note 7 owners, but the big update is coming today. No, not Nougat. This is the update that will stop your phone from being able to charge, rendering it useless.
T-Mobile set today as the target date for this update to begin rolling out a couple of weeks ago, right after Samsung announced that they were ready to take extreme action against those refusing to return their Note 7 device. I think it’s clear that Samsung wants all Note 7 devices recalled, so that they can move on to what’s next.
The update rolls out today as software version N930TUVU2APL2, requires at least a 30% charge, and weighs in at 113.75MB. T-Mobile describes it as one that will “send an on-screen notification about the recall with action steps to take and will prevent the charge ability of the device.”
To check for this latest update, head into Settings>General management>Software update>Download updates manually.
Because your Note 7 is about to become a brick, you should probably get rid of it, once and for all. For more information on your options, check out Samsung’s dedicated recall site.
