An exchange program for customers who bought the flagship from Samsung.com isn’t up and running yet because shipping partners are not working with Samsung on this. Both FedEx and UPS have refused to ship Galaxy Note 7 units with faulty batteries back to Samsung as they are a potential fire hazard and the company won’t process an exchange unless it receives the old unit first.
Samsung confirmed to a customer who purchased their handset from the company’s website that “At this time due to FedEx and UPS refusing to transport the packages there’s no exchange program.” There’s still hope, though. Samsung says that a new program will be introduced for these customers instead of the Return/Refund system that’s being implemented across the globe. This new system is said to go live in the coming days so further details will be available later this week.
