The decision to include new Galaxy Note7 replacement devices as part of an expanded recall was made after Samsung stopped the production, sale and exchange of the product on October 10, 2016.
All owners of Galaxy Note7 devices can exchange their phone for another Samsung smartphone device, or receive a refund, under the terms of the expanded U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program, approved by the CPSC.
Through the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program, consumers can choose the following options beginning on October 13, 2016:
Up to a $100 total bill credit for a customer who exchanges a Note7 for any Samsung smartphone.
A $25 total bill credit for a customer who exchanges a Note7 for a refund or other branded smartphone.
