If your thinking stock wise, wouldn't make a difference either way.

is anyone following this? https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyNote7/

 

no one in the States has any idea whats going on and it sounds like their telco's dont either. all sorts of misinformation. entertaining really but also sad at the same time. people getting charged restocking fees to return loan phones and all sorts. i think with our 3 telcos here we are pretty lucky... although we dont have our replacement phones yet so ill reserve my judgement completely until that happens.

Apparently if you buy the new iPhone on one network (forget which), it will NEVER work on the others I read somewhere!

 

 

 

Yes we are not doing badly - although a better indication of when new stock is expected would be nice.

In the US you cant buy the note 7 outright, has to be on contract. Also is carrier locked.

Total chaos in the US. You're right - maybe we don't know how lucky we are - sort of.

just flew Air NZ domestically. "due to FAA's recommendation we now ask that all passengers who are using a Samsung Note 7 to please turn it off and not charge it while onboard, thanks"

 

... so i gave it to the pilot and he threw it out the window. (please tell me other people remember that)
