Still refuse to return your Note7? Samsung’s about to make it a useless brick of metal
It’s time to really surrender your Samsung Galaxy Note7 if you haven’t already done so.
Starting on Nov. 18, Note7 phones won’t connect to cellular networks…in New Zealand, according to a notice posted on Samsung New Zealand’s website.
Devices will not be able to “make calls, use data or send SMS messages.” Samsung says it’ll be contacting customers from now until Nov. 18 with info on the service disconnection to allow proper time for them to return and replace their defective phones.
