Samsung may be adjusting its shipments of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones to carriers and retailers, but no one in the US or UK may take them.

In addition to AT&T and T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon have now stopped sales of the Note 7. All units, whether recalled or replaced, may be exchanged for other phones, CNET reported. Even Best Buy has done and offered the same.

Across the pond, EE and Vodafone have stated to Android Central that they are suspending exchanges for new Note 7 phones and are working with Samsung. O2 and Three have not yet taken similar action, but are in contact with the manufacturer.

This all comes after a week of replacement Note 7 units exploding in event after event. A recall was placed for every unit pre-ordered or sold before September 2 for concerns about the battery’s construction. Batteries were exploding then, too.

An official at a parts supplier for Samsung said early on Monday that it had stopped work on the Galaxy Note 7. It was today when Samsung clarified its production schedule for the phone.

These reports could lead to an unprecedented second recall for the product.
