Samsung may remotely deactivate Galaxy Note 7′s that aren’t returned

Yesterday, Samsung published a blog post on its Newsroom stressing how important it is that all Galaxy Note 7 owners trade in their device for a replacement, and now it’s being suggested that the South Korean company may remotely deactivate units that aren’t exchanged by Friday, September 30, in order to ensure the safety of its customers.

This news comes following a Redditor’s telephone call with a Samsung representative who informed him that the firm will start shipping out a care package consisting of replacement Galaxy Note 7, the latest Gear VR and a prepaid envelope to return their defective handset on Monday, September 19.

Those who participate in the Galaxy Note 7 exchange program and don’t opt for a full refund will also be entitled to either a complimentary $25 gift card, in-store credit or bill credit from their carrier. It’s worth noting, however, that AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Verizon are the only operators participating in this scheme.
