    Are you still using the "unsafe" model? Are you going to return it for a new one? Are you going to get a different phone?

    Going to replace it when the safe note comes out. Love the phone and have been keeping an eye on it and only charging wirelessly with a case. Just waiting for the new note to come out from T mobile and will try to order online or by phone.

    Trading it in tomorrow for an S7. Hoping for the notes to get restocked quickly because I do not want an s7.

    Using mine for a few more days. Trying to get my Note 4 back online until they fox all these issues. Plus I'm being the whole "S-pen" stuck issue after being in the water!

    Yeah Verizon screwed me on the upgrade saying I need to turn my phone in on a trade when I was told I could keep it when I initially did the early upgrade. (From two year contract to payment plan). This will kill time until true upgrade.

    I'm keeping my Note 7 until the replacement comes out. Having a defective phone in hand will give me more leverage to get the replacement right away. I love my Note 7 and don't want to be stuck trying to convince Verizon to do the right thing and swap out a loaner or S7. I don't charge it in the car or overnight while I'm sleeping. I've read that Samsung is recommending not charging above 60%. I may try that and see how much of a hassle it is.

    At&t is saying you have 30 from the day you got your note seven in to freely trade it in and get an s7. When the new notes come in you can bring the loaner back and swap them back out for free. I don't want to push past my 30 days just in case they want to argue about me not being able to swap it out for a new unit.

    Honestly I use mine like a regular phone. Charge it like normal and everything. So far it doesn't even get hotter than any other phone I've ever had.

    Still using mine till the next ones come in, since sprint doesn't offer loaners and I don't have a viable backup.

    I'm still using mine. Been charging wirelessly. No issues yet. I love the note 7, and will get a new one once they hit stores.

    I'm still using mine and will continue to until the new ones come in. The problems are being overblown and I will not become involved. I simply do not charge at night.

    I'm just ready to get my replacement, and for this to blow over. I made the mistake of buying mine at Sam's. Virtually impossible to speak with someone and when you do manage to get someone, they know nothing. Only reason I purchased it there was for the $150 gift card in addition to the Samsung freebies.

    I bought mine at Best Buy. I'm happy with them, but I'm going to be mad if I turn in this phone that is perfect, and sometime down the road run into problems with the new one.

    I've not heard anything for sure. However, I'm insisting on my same color. Got the silver, and love it.

    I love all the good things Note 7 brings to the table. The only thing I miss is the IR blaster. I really hope that the replacement is EXACTLY like the one I have right now. I really don't want to replace this but I have to knowing that this will not survive the full year. But at the moment, I simply cannot find anything to complain about the phone, so much so I don't even think of rooting or even changing the launcher.

    I couldn't agree more. I love the phone as is. Hate to turn in but like you, I can not see taking the chance on being responsible if it dies in a few months.

    This phone is fantastic and I have had no issues with it. I hate changing it out but will once they get the shipment in.
