1/4 of a million people in the US still have their Note 7, soon it may turn into a brick

I still have my Note 7. I was planning on trading it in soon anyway though since I'm flying to Europe. There is literally no other phone on the market that I want though.

Related: Verizon won't push the bricking update because having a way to contact your family, first responders, and such is more important than a chance at the battery blowing up. https://techcrunch.com/2016/12/09/verizon-note-7/

it was a legal recall, Verizon should know better

people that hold to their Note 7s can possibly put their life in danger and those around them - person gets in a car crash, uses Note7 to call 911, phone bursts into flames killing that person; who won? who's next?

As for all this "pushing updates", that's such a joke.  I assume anyone hell-bent on keeping theirs has already flashed another OS like cyanogen which would completely isolate them from these OTA updates.  They're out there already, it's too late for that.  The only way to get them back is doing something physical.

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.

they could still lock out based on IMEI, I'm guessing

Judging by some of these responses, would it be safe to assume that some here would be in favor of a law forbidding possession of a (safety) recalled device?

I'm surprised this number isn't higher. My fellow muricans are idiots.

Perhaps they're keeping them just so they have a reason to sue Samsung for millions down the road. The American dream, getting rich by suing companies for outlandish reasons. Remember the "I cut my mouth on a box of cereal" fiasco?

That would be a good idea wouldn't it?  Especially when these things can explode or start on fire.

 

Which is it?  Does the note 7 just light on fire or jump right to exploding?

Yes, absolutely.  I guess there's no such thing as a "legally binding recall" (ie, it becomes illegal to continue possessing the item) or this wouldn't even still be getting talked about since that's definitely what would have happened.

The best way to recall them is blow them up on demand. Like self destruct. i am sure there are some crazy haxers that can do it. lol

Well ignoring the fact that it would be highly unethical, for the same reason that they can't push updates to them, they can't really make this happen either.  Although it would be an easy and fantastically "I-told-you-so" solution to the problem xD

Dude... Just because other, more common, risks exist, doesn't make this any less of an unnecessary and legitimate risk.

$15 / GB?  Try $5 / 100MB

Nope, it's 15. Verizon charges a flat $15 even if you just barely went over a gig. IE .001GB over.  Unsure of other carriers, Project Fi seems to only reasonable one for data overages.

My concern is over the recall is certain boundaries concerning personal property may be overstepped. Thus a more permanent solution would be legislation to address that problem. 

 

Even with something like vehicles, the government cannot yet force you to repair a recalled vehicle. However, it can prevent you from operating the vehicle on public roads until the vehicle receives the fix. Likewise, a carrier can prevent the phone's from operating on their networks. 

 

Samsung pushing updates that disables the devices edges dangerously close to overstepping their bounds. Even for a safety issue, I'm extremely wary of giving companies this sort of power over consumer property. Hence, legislation should be necessary to outline what powers OEM's have in retrieving safety recalled devices.

One such idea would be a law that if the US recalls a device, all sales associated are nullified, thus the devices now belong to Samsung.

You mean you're worried that people's right might be stepped in the name of safety?  That recall efforts might be a bit heavy handed?
