US Cellular joins the club, stops selling and exchanging Galaxy Note 7 models
Samsung is slowly losing favour in the United States markets and that is largely due to the kinds of problems that the Galaxy Note 7 units have already caused them so far. When this debacle began, it looked like something that could be passed off with a quick fix and the South Korean OEM then decided to introduce a recall and replacement program for the device of which the faulty units were supposed to be returned to the company and replacement units given to customers.
However, these replacements that were deemed as safe were also guilty of the crime of the first ones and when they started to explode, AT&T became the first to go as they stopped selling and replacing faulty units. Not so long after, T-Mobile made their own announcement and while that has accounted for two out of the big four carriers in the United States, US Cellular has taken the same path as these big names and opted out of the Note 7 program altogether.
While we are not sure if carriers would be picking this up again or if Samsung would be making additional units, investigations are ongoing as to what has caused the explosion of these units and we hope, for Samsung’s sakes, that something good comes out of this.
