Verizon Changes Its Mind, Bricking The Galaxy Note 7 Jan. 5th

It looks as though Verizon is doing a 180آ؛ on its announcement last week not to brick the Samsung Note 7 via software update (here). Your phone now has until January 5th to explode and kill you.

Samsung will be releasing a Note7 software update on December 19. This update prevents the device from charging and eliminates the ability for it to work as a mobile device. Verizon will not be pushing this software update to your device until January 5, 2017. We want to make sure you can contact family, first responders, and emergency medical professionals during the holiday travel season.
