Verizon to disable all the Galaxy Note7s after January 5

Galaxy Note 7

Earlier this month, Samsung announced that it would be rolling out an update for the Galaxy Note devices in the US and all the carriers also agreed to roll out the update to their users except for Verizon which announced that it won’t be rolling out the update to disable the Galaxy Note 7 devices because it’s the holiday season and they don’t want users to move around without a functional phone.

Verizon has now stated that they will be rolling out the update to disable the Note7s on January 5, 2017.

Samsung will be releasing a Note7 software update on December 19. This update prevents the device from charging and eliminates the ability for it to work as a mobile device.

Verizon will not be pushing this software update to your device until January 5, 2017. We want to make sure you can contact family, first responders, and emergency medical professionals during the holiday travel season.

However, we urge you to stop using your Note7, upgrade it to another device, and return the Note7 to us.

Samsung recall is still in progress and for those of you who wanted to keep the Galaxy Note 7 well, it’s not a good news and you should probably exchange it for some other device while you still can.
