It was first reported last week that reports of replacement Galaxy Note 7 devices catching fire is causing concern over at AT&T which is considering stopping sales of the Galaxy Note 7. AT&T confirmed yesterday that it’s stopping sales. Today, two of its rivals have joined its ranks as well. Verizon and T-Mobile have both confirmed that they will no longer sell the Galaxy Note 7 until Samsung’s investigation into the matter reveals something they can work with.
“Customers can still bring their recalled Note 7 or the new replacement Note 7, along with accessories they purchased from T-Mobile, to a T-Mobile store for a full refund and choose from any device in T-Mobile’s inventory,” T-Mobile said in a statement.
Magenta will not give customers replacement Galaxy Note 7 units now so those who still have a recalled unit can now choose between another Samsung smartphone or one from any other manufacturer that’s available on T-Mobile.
Not too long after T-Mobile confirmed its Galaxy Note 7 plans, Verizon issued a statement as well confirming that it’s also halting sales of Samsung’s latest flagship. Big Red won’t give out any replacement units until the investigations are complete.
Samsung is yet to confirm if there are any issues in replacement units as well that make them unsafe to use. The company has only said so far that it’s taking these reports seriously and working hard to ascertain the cause.
