galaxy-note-7-design_05-black-cameraAs you guys might have heard, airlines and governments around the world are starting to ban the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from being brought onboard planes. Given that the phones are a potential fire hazard due, it makes sense. So the question is, what happens if you rock up to the airport and you have the phone with you?


Now obviously you should have returned the phone by now and gotten your refund, but we guess for some reason there are still plenty of people who aren’t doing so. The good news is that Samsung has anticipated this because according to reports, it seems that Samsung has actually setup trade-in booths at airports around the world.

At these trade-in booths, customers can speak to Samsung reps who will help them to exchange their devices for another Samsung product. We’re not sure if refunds are possible at these booths, but trade-ins are definitely doable. However we should note that doing last minute exchanges can get messy as you’ll have to download your apps again, retrieve your contacts, photos, and etc., and the airport isn’t exactly the most ideal location.

However like we said, if you just found out about the ban, we guess these trade-in booths will be the last stop. Note that so far the booths have only been setup in South Korea, Australia, and the US, but Samsung did state that they plan on opening more soon.
