PSA: Samsung will even exchange second-hand Galaxy Note7s

If you somehow managed to purchase a used Samsung Galaxy Note7 and you arent sure how the global recall will work in your case, weve got some great news. Samsung will exchange your Note7, regardless of where you purchased it, even if you purchased it second-hand from eBay or Swappa.

You wont need to contact your seller or anything like that. Samsung has stated that Any customer who bought a Note7 (even used) should contact us directly at 1-844-265-6197 to exchange their device. So even if you did purchase a used Note7, you can contact Samsung directly at the phone number mentioned and receive a replacement of either a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge.

Its not known if Samsung had a say as to whether or not used phones would be covered, but given the potential risk of starting fires, the United Stated Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), is working closely with Samsung to ensure that all Note7s are returned before any permanent damages or injuries occur.

Seriously, if you havent already, return your Note7. You can check out how, here. No smartphone is worth even the tiniest risk of catching fire.
