Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Dying Embers Thread

Recommended Posts

Did you upload your recept to Samsung Promos? I swapped out my N7 and it looks like they approved me for the VR. Not a bad deal, I got a Gear Fit 2 and now VR.

DId you go with the S7 or S7 Edge then back?

Went and purchased the Note 7 last night. Sprint wouldn't sell the phone without it being activated. So I went to Best Buy and they got the sale. 

Guy at BB even said that they get a lot of people from the Sprint store because of one reason or another.

Filled out the form and selected other for phone type. I don't have it in hand yet but my status was changed to "Congratulations! Your submission has been approved and we are currently processing your gift for delivery."

I didn't get a receipt for my new phone. They just handed me the new phone and activated it within 20 minutes.

 

I submitted one and I'll see if they accept it, if not, that's fine.

My is also approved. My receipt from Sprint was an exchange slip. My prior one was from the online account info.

I just tried to redeem the promo with the VR headset with my newly purchased Note 7 and it said my phone is not eligible. Not sure how some people are getting it to go through. Any ideas?

Did you click on "Other Galaxy Phone" when it asked you which phone you have?

Yes. When I got to the page to enter the MEID and WiFi MAC address, it said my phone model did not qualify.

Maybe they got smart and did a verification check.

Yes i believe this is probably the explanation here.

Just an FYI. If you are coming from another Samsung phone and had enhanced messaging enabled, disable it on your old phone before activating a Note 7. Apparently the Note 7 does not have that feature for some reason.

 

I was sending texts to my mom from my Note 7 and I wasn't receiving anything back. I turned on my old phone (Note 5) and 4 messages came through over WiFi. For those who may not know, enhanced messages go over the data channel, so that's why they came through over WiFi.

Ugh good thing I stayed with my 5, this is just getting worse and worse now for Samsung. The 7 is a flop.

Not much of an upgrade over the 5.

    • I'm going to jump because my contract will be up... before I buy another phone, I want to be with T mobile.    Better coverage for me personally, and much cheaper for a single plan.   Even if I have to go to Metro... I don't care.   I've been with Sprint since  2000.   I've had enough of them and their continual  struggling and many incomplete promises.  Just me... guess I'm just frustrated with them personally.      
    • What's the point in jumping ship if they look too weak if the merger doesn't go through? They have looked weak and everyone has been calling for their bankruptcy for like a decade now. If the merger doesn't happen, they will still be around. If you like the service and your plan no need to leave really. Im jumping ship now because Im adding a third line and want to save money. 
    • My note 10 plus takes absolutely terrible selfies and pretty bad photos on the main camera as well. With all the praise that's been piled upon this phone's camera, I was expecting to be wowed but I'm not even pleased. Maybe I have a faulty device??   My S9 plus definitely took way better photos.   
    • 2:30am or 2:30pm has very little effect on uploads, most of the time only the peak speeds are affected by off peak vs peak times. They are almost always stable. http://imgur.com/gallery/B1LjEuW
    • All those speeds are at 2:30 AM from the same date. Very anecdotal data.
