As I mentioned in this post, Samsung issued a world-wide recall a couple of weeks ago for all Galaxy Note 7 smartphones that have been sold to date due to a dangerous battery issue.
Since then they have been able to determine which specific phones have the defective batteries, and they have modified the recall to cover only the affected devices.
If you own a Galaxy Note 7 you can now easily check to see if your phone still falls under the recall notice. You can choose either of two methods for checking your phone’s recall status:
Method one: Download the Samsung+ app from the Google Play Store. Once installed, the app will automatically check your phone and tell you whether or not it is on the recall list.
Method two: Check your phone at the Samsung website by following the steps below:
1 – Visit this page on the Samsung website.
2 – Scroll down to the “Eligibility” section.
3 – Enter either the phone’s IMEI or its serial number into the box, then click the Check button. The result will tell you whether your phone is covered by the recall or not.
Regardless of which method you used, if you learned that your Galaxy Note 7 is on the recall list you can follow the instructions on the page linked to in step 1 above for instructions for requesting a replacement for your phone.
