Why you need to swap your Note 7 now
In case you haven’t heard of the epic “meltdown” of Samsungs Note 7. The phone has literally exploded causing an unprecedented recall of the device. At first, airlines were allowing passengers to fly with the Note 7 so long as it was turned off. Now, the FAA has banned the device completely on all flights.
If you show up for your flight with a Note 7 you will NOT be allowed to board the plane and will have to leave your device behind. Just a couple days ago I was at Incheon Airport in Seoul where Samsung had set up a booth to allow customers to swap out their Note 7 for another phone free of charge, including transferring your data. According to Samsung, booths will be setup at major airports across the world. I give credit to Samsung for their attempt to quickly try to right a wrong and restore consumer confidence. But for now quickly SWAP YOUR NOTE 7 before your next flight!
