Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Worldwide Recall Alert - 

Did you or someone you know purchase the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

Samsung is recalling 2.5 million of new Galaxy Note 7 smartphones worldwide after reports that the devices can catch fire while charging. The company originally said it would take about two weeks to prepare the recall, but later announced Note 7 users in the U.S. can exchange their device for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, starting next week. It will also refund the cost of Note 7-specific accessories. 

Samsung is giving Note 7 users a $25 gift card or bill credit for the inconvenience. 

More details about how the recall program will work will be announced shortly, the company said. In the meantime, people worried about their batteries should contact their nearest Samsung service center.

Target and Amazon said Friday that it has stopped selling the phone and is working with Samsung to replace the devices already sold in stores and online. Amazon and Best Buy have also said they are no longer selling the Note 7. Best Buy customers can return or exchange the phone if they already bought one.

U.S. mobile carriers AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint have suspended sales. Meanwhile, Sprint is offering up similar devices for customers to use during the recall process.
