T-Mobile will begin pushing update to kill Galaxy Note 7 today


If you’re still using a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, your time with the device is about to come to an end.

Today’s the day that T-Mobile will begin pushing an update to its Galaxy Note 7 that’ll prevent the phone from charging. The update will also include a notification with info about Samsung’s Note 7 recall and steps you should take to return the device.

The update is version N930TUVU2APL2.

Anyone still using a Note 7 can bring their device into a T-Mobile store to return it and get a full refund. All restocking charges will be waived, and if you got a free gift with your Note 7, you’ll be able to keep it. You can also get a $25 bill credit for returning your Note 7, and another $75 bill credit if you move to another Samsung device.

The Galaxy Note 7 is a solid device with high-end specs and an attractive design, so it’s disappointing that it has to be killed off. That said, any Note 7s still out there are potentially dangerous to the owner and anyone around them, and so Note 7 phones that are still in use should be turned in.
