The link below will take you to that website, where you can enter your Galaxy Note 7′s IMEI to see if it is “in the list of affected devices.” Considering every Note 7 sold outside the Chinese market has the faulty battery, this IMEI check is probably just Samsung’s way of giving users an official confirmation that they should turn in their phone as soon as humanly possible. The Korean giant has refuted claims that it would be remotely disabling devices on its own after a few days, so make sure to call up your retailer or carrier right away, ask for a replacement, and also spread the news to your friends and loved ones to make sure the information gets around.
Oh, and don’t forget to shut down your Note 7 once you’re done.

Note: You can check your device’s IMEI by entering *#06# in the dialer, or by heading into the Settings » About device » Status menu and looking under the IMEI tab. The IMEI will also be listed on the back of your device, although based on your phone’s color this text might be hard to make out.
