Galaxy Note7 units still in use in Australia will be disconnected from the mobile networks on December 15

Last month Samsung went further than ever in trying to ensure that all Galaxy Note7 units sold in New Zealand are returned following its discontinuation of the device. Working with the carriers over there, the company has basically shut down mobile network access for those Note7 handsets still in the wild. This move has apparently proved successful, since Samsung is now getting ready to do the exact same thing in neighboring Australia.

Starting on December 15, if you have a Note7 in Australia you won’t be able to use it on any of the mobile networks over there. It will essentially be cut off from the mobile infrastructure, meaning it will only connect to Wi-Fi networks from that point on. Samsung clearly hopes that this will finally convince the “small number” of holdouts to return their devices. After all, these are the people who can live with their phones only charging up to 60%.

Samsung’s even throwing in $250 in “a specific partner offer” that hasn’t been detailed yet, but only if you choose to replace your Note7 with a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge. This is on top of the refund for the difference between the two sales prices, of course. The $250 offer will be valid until December 22, and at some point the page at the Source link below will be updated to tell us more about it. Before the end of the year we should find out exactly what caused the Note7 fires.

  1. Note7 owner, 3 hours agoCome and get me if you can Sammy. Ultimate fanboy judgment is pouring down eh?

  2. I guess famous n7 ads wont stop coming. Even people that don’t know what android is know about them now.

  3. blows….
    If they have offered Note 8 or S8 in exchange then its a different story. Goving S7s, who needs them?

  4. I am so happy for Samsung.
    My Story….

    Last year I got a S6 Edge when I was in Africa and then the next day I came to India.

    Upon begining to use the device I realized the display is getting hairline scratches just by keeping it in a pocket without any keys or any sharp objects. Latter I checked on google and learnt itz a known issue with 20% S6 Edge device.

    I contacted Smsung Service Centre in India and they were not willing to help claiming that I have to contact Samsung Africa.

    That has upset me to the core. I am not going back to Afrixa so how can I contact them.

    I stuck a tamper glass and the flip case to prevent further damage. I hate tamper glass on my phone.

    After few weeks I realized battery drain issue. Till now I have to charge the phone 3 times a day.

    Samsung did not help me fix my US $760 phone and now they had a loss of billion $ for the Note7. Serves them just right.

    I am happy with my iphone 7 plus. S6 edge is just a secondary phone..

  5. okayGK, 3 hours agoblows….
    If they have offered Note 8 or S8 in exchange then its a different story. Goving S7… morebut those aren’t out yet, so ur telling me that u will be left with no phone until those arrive? isn’t it better to at least give u a phone in exchange rather than just a promise? also keep in mind that the pricing for the new models isn’t clear yet so they can’t know if it’s “profitable” for them in any way…
    now to the post, there’re ways to go around the restriction (changing IMEI) so i’m guessing a few people will still hold onto their device XD

  6. Note7 owner, 3 hours agoCome and get me if you can Sammy. They will , just be patient,!

  7. okayGK, 3 hours agoblows….
    If they have offered Note 8 or S8 in exchange then its a different story. Goving S7… moreif that existed that is. would you stay without a phone untill then?

  8. Anonymous, 4 hours agoThe Note 7 owners should change their IMEI.it’s possible. and relatively easy. but ask google for that because I’m not going to mess with the carriers or FBI or other CSI unions. ^^;

  9. Anonymous, 4 hours agoThe Note 7 owners should change their IMEI.You think Samsung havent think of that. They are probably already a step ahead of you at preventing that from happening.
