Verizon Will Kill Galaxy Note7 on Jan 5th Afterall

Posted by at 1:10 pm on December 16, 2016

Verizon Wireless¬†hasupdated its stance on Samsung’s plan to brick remaining Galaxy Note7 handsets and will allow the update to go through on January 5.

Earlier this month, Samsung announced plans to brick active Note7 units through a software update to be pushed December 19. The update will prevent the Note7 from charging and negate its ability to function as a mobile device.

Verizon previously refused¬†to allow the update as it didn’t want to leave customers without a working handset. Now, it says it will allow the update to go through after the holidays.

“We want to make sure you can contact family, first responders, and emergency medical professionals during the holiday travel season. However, we urge you to stop using your Note7, upgrade it to another device, and return the Note7 to us,” said the company.

AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile all plan to push the update, too.
