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.
