While those of us who purchased a Note 7 prior to the recall have been able to exchange the Note 7 in stores for the last couple of weeks, starting on Wednesday the Note 7 will be available for all to purchase for $849.99. Sprint ($849.99) and Verizon ($864) are already selling the Galaxy Note 7 to new owners.
The AT&T Note 7 landing page still shows the device is only available for those making an exchange, but may soon also open up sales to new buyers. AT&T's model is $879.99.
It's likely we will soon see updated recall figures for the Note 7, but given that US carriers and Samsung are selling the Note 7 to new buyers there looks to be plenty of stock for new buyers, so all existing Note 7 owners should make the exchange now.
I just flew across the country and heard the Delta warning regarding the Galaxy Note 7 a couple of times. It's not clear when this warning will be lifted, but to make people feel at ease I've been using my iPhone 7 Plus on the flights.
