Samsung warns users about using the Galaxy Note 7 and stops worldwide sales.
Samsung issued a statemen, warning users about using the Galaxy Note 7 and asking all retail partners and carriers to stop selling it. This comes just one day after Samsung stopped production of the Galaxy Note 7.

After stopping production of the Galaxy Note 7 early morning yesterday, Samsung now issued an official warning to its users in the Samsung Newsroom. In a short message, the South Korean company warned users to stop using all models of the Galaxy Note 7, either old or new and take advantage of the options available to them. While not saying so directly, this obviously means returning the phone for another model or a refund. 

Samsung also indicated to carriers and all retail channels, that sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 have been stopped worldwide. Samsung will be working with all proper authorities to investigate the problem in detail, they promised in their statement. CPSC has not issued a formal statement in that matter yet, but they indicated last week, that a second recall is possible. At the moment, we cannot stress enough, that buying and using the Galaxy Note 7 could be a danger to you and your environment and should be avoided.
