Like the Verizon version yesterday, T-Mobile and AT&T models of the Galaxy Note 7 are receiving their battery indicator change update. In this update, the battery indicator will turn to green (from white) to let you know that the Note 7 in your hand is safe and should be free from exploding. (more…)

Seriously, that’s the current answer.

As for when the rest of the world will get the V20, that’s anyone’s guess. (more…)
UPDATE: Samsung has now revealed an official exchange program for the Galaxy Note 7 recall. Full details at this post, but you may want to read some of the details below for your specific carrier.
UPDATE 2: We have updated each carrier section below with the latest details.
All of the major US carriers have now acknowledged that they have stopped sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, following Samsung’s statement about battery cell issues and an impending recall. While most seem to still be working with Samsung to determine the best course of action for replacing the Note 7 you may have purchased with a new one, almost all of them are offering immediate returns and full refunds with no re-stocking fee should concerns over exploding batteries have you worried.
Below, you’ll find statements and details from each carrier. (more…)
To no one’s surprise, Verizon has been crowned champion of the US carriers yet again by RootMetrics. For tests conducted throughout the first half of 2016, Verizon came out on top for all categories, including Reliability, Speed, and Calls.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is officially here and available at carriers and retailers across the US (and the globe). We like to call this “launch day.” If you took the plunge and pre-ordered, your phone should arrive today at the very least, if it hasn’t already. If you didn’t pre-order, well, today is the day to walk into a store, buy one, and walk back out the proud owner of what should be a hell of a phone. (more…)
On August 21, AT&T customers will be able to choose from new Mobile Share Advantage plans that aim to get you more data per buck in some situations, while including throttled data at no extra cost once you hit your data limit. The new plans also make the device access charges a flat $20 per month on all plans instead of varying depending on your bucket size. (more…)
Oh boy, the HTC Nexus phones just stopped off at the FCC this morning. As we all know, that’s huge news in terms of how this story begins to unfold in front of us.

Let’s dive into the filings that went live this morning and share what we are finding. Also, as we find more, we’ll be updating this post. (more…)
