    I agree! THIS story is not good at all. If you have an original fire-starter, you should take this seriously. Always place it on something that's non-combustible, nor next to anything that is, while sleeping. Hopefully, the replacements will get to everyone soon.

    I have it next to a bunch of essential oils that are standing on top of a cabinet that I use to store propane tanks, no good?



    Also, if the Note 7 is water proof, does that mean that you can't spray water on it to put out the fire? I'm so confused, I think I'm just going to get me a flip phone.....

    How about two Note 7's gutted of their batteries, connected by a short string for all local calls and a very long string when calling long distance!

    ^^ I guess that'll work. But if you hold that to your ear, you are likely to experience difficulty hearing the person on the other end when you connect.

    The only problem I have with this story is how often do people leave the house without their phones? Kind of suspicious that he would leave the phone plugged in (especially given the recall of the device) even if he was driving a few minutes down the street and back.

    I'm patiently waiting for the next News Media outlet purporting that ISIS is behind some of these exploding Note 7 episodes. ;)

    It's likely he knew nothing of the recall before the fire. Recalls can very well fly under the radar to people not actively looking for them.

    And leaving the phone at home to run down the street isn't all that questionable. If he were leaving for a day trip tho, maybe.

    I often leave my phone at home, for mornings or afternoons. Don't actually need it at work, where it has to be silent or airplane mode anyway, and commute is only a short distance.
