Samsung is on the steep decline from the height of its recall of every sold Galaxy Note 7 unit with a potential of containing an explosive battery. Even as official new sales dates are a bit far off, carriers in the US have started selling brand new Note 7 phones in addition to handling exchanges.
For AT&T, the games have only just begun as it has notified customers who have purchased a Note 7 prior to September 15 that new units are available for their exchange. Users are also getting an OTA update that will automatically download and install. Data charges for this update will be zeroed out by carriers.
The only change that occurs with the load-in is with the battery indicator color — new units will turn from white to green. Look for build number N930AUCS2APHE.
T-Mobile customers are also getting the update, too, under build number N930TUVU2API4.
