While Verizon may have been late to the party in terms of taking measures against its customers who still use the recalled Galaxy Note 7, they may be the ones to strike the most decisive blow.


According to reports, Verizon have plans to finally stop the most stubborn of customers from using the Samsung Note 7 and there seems to be no way around it

Verizon have admitted that there are still thousands of customers using the Galaxy Note 7 but that should soon end as Verizon are about to make it impossible to make calls from the phone. All non-emergency calls will be automatically diverted to customer service moving forward.

Verizon had earlier along with other carriers, issued a special Galaxy Note 7 update a few weeks ago that should have crippled the phone and stopped it from being able to recharge. But trust the geeks, they were able to avoid the update thereby foiling the plan, but the odds of them avoiding the new measure seems unlikely.

According to a Verizon spokesperson, “In spite of our best efforts, there are still customers using the recalled phones who have not returned or exchanged their Note 7 to the point of purchase,

“The recalled Note 7s pose a safety risk to our customers and those around them.”


The cause of the fault that made many phones blow up is still unknown, but some reports speculate that Samsung will reveal the cause later this month.
