Updated information about the Samsung Galaxy Note7

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a full recall on all versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note7. The Department of Transportation has banned Note7 devices from all flights due to safety concerns, effective 10/15/2016. This includes both carry on and checked luggage. Additionally, effective 12/27/16, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 will receive a software update from Samsung that will prevent charging the battery due to safety concerns. We are urging our customers to power down their device and bring all models of the Note7 back to a T Mobile store immediately for a full refund. Customers can apply the refund towards the purchase of any device in T Mobile’s inventory as a replacement.

You can bring any version of the Note7, along with accessories you purchased for the Note7 from T-Mobile, to a T-Mobile store for a full refund.

We’ll waive any restocking charges, and if you purchased during pre-order you can keep the free Netflix subscription and Gear Fit or SD card you received.

Exchange your Note7 today and get up to $100 credit
We want to help offset any additional costs and inconvenience our customers may have incurred throughout this process. For a limited time, you’ll automatically receive a one-time $25 credit on your T-Mobile bill within two bill cycles when you return your Note7 device to us. Additionally, customers who choose to exchange it for a new Samsung device (e.g., the Galaxy S7) will receive an extra one-time $75 bill credit within 2-3 bill cycles.

Again, we urge customers to stop using and power down their recalled and replacement Note7 devices and return them to T-Mobile as soon as possible. For additional questions, you can also call Customer Care at 1-844-275-9309.


We are only able to issue returns for Note7s purchased through T-Mobile; but don’t worry, you can still receive a refund.

2. Get your new device! Check out all your options on our website or at your local T‑Mobile store.
