Updated Consumer Guidance for Samsung Galaxy Note7

Updated: 12 October 2016

Samsung Electronics Australia has extended its recall to all Galaxy Note7 devices in this country, including those that were provided as replacement Galaxy Note7 devices.

Customers in Australia who have a Galaxy Note7, both an original Note7 device purchased before September 5 or a new replacement Note7 device, should power down their phone and contact their original place of purchase.

Samsung Australia is working with all its operator and retail partners to ensure all customers can receive an exchange – including to a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge (plus a refund for the difference in price) - or full refund for their Galaxy Note7.

Before returning their Galaxy Note7, customers should back-up their data, complete a factory reset to delete personal information and power down their device.

We sincerely regret the inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.
