Sales of the Galaxy Note 7 may have been halted only a few days after its official launch in key markets but in South Korea, the tech giant will begin selling the smartphone on September 28. We had no idea when exactly it will be out in the United States again but apparently, there are now Note 7 units in stock and for sale in T-Mobile Store in North Seattle according to a Reddit thread.
Redditor ‘pearbobber’ shared information that a T-Mobile sales representative said they “weren’t supposed to sell them until tomorrow” but instead, started selling already. That was yesterday. As for Verizon, the mobile carrier has also listed the new Galaxy Note7. This time, there’s a note that says the phone they’re selling has been “approved by the (CPSC) for all purchases and exchanges”.
Verizon mentioned the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recall of the Galaxy Note 7 and continued on with describing the latest premium flagship smartphone. Its full retail price is $864 but you can avail of a unit with no downpayment but with a $36 monthly fee under a two-year contract. It’s for the 64GB model which is available in Blue Coral, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx.
Verizon is careful to announce the good news and so it’s sharing some FAQs for those who purchased the Note 7 earlier.
Is the Galaxy Note 7 still a good choice given all the bad publicity it received the past few weeks? Exploding battery aside, it’s one worthy investment. If you have a lot of money to burn (pun intended), get this Note 7. Cross your fingers it won’t burn you that way it did to a guy in Florida.
