Samsung announced earlier this week that it’s soon going to release a new software update for the Galaxy Note 7 in the United States which will basically kill the device remotely. Once the update is installed, the handset won’t be able to charge itself or access the network. Samsung said that it would work with the major carriers in the country to roll out this update within 30 days. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have now all confirmed that they are taking part in this update and they have also confirmed when they will release the final Galaxy Note 7 update.

Soon after Samsung revealed that it has created the final update for the Galaxy Note 7 in the United States, the nation’s largest wireless carrier Verizon sent out a statement saying that it won’t work with Samsung on this.

AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have decided to go the other way. They will work with Samsung but will decide when to release the update. All of them will wait until Christmas to start the roll out.

T-Mobile will go first by releasing it on December 27 and it will be followed by AT&T which will release the update on January 5th, 2017. Sprint is going to be the last to release the update on January 8th. Verizon hasn’t confirmed as yet if it intends to reverse this decision, for now, it’s sticking with its decision to not take part in this update.
