After receiving an email from Samsung saying turn off Note 7s and exchange them , I went to a corporate store and downgraded to S7 Edge this morning. Was told since I no longer had box and all packing materials I would be charged a restocking fee. I kept the dang thinks until earlier this week. There goes $70 for two boxes.
I am hoping that this becomes policy. I to down graded to the Edge. Unlike you I was not told that I can exchange for the N7 again when it is avail. I did say that I felt victimized being forced into options that benefit Verizon more than the customer. BTW my store was not a Verizon corporate but Aplus wireless. Another example how THEY NEED TO MAKE A UNIFIED STATEMENT .
Just to make things better, I was told one price and today when I logged into Verizon to see the receipts, they hit my credit card for an additional $70. So I ended up paying $140 in restocking for two phones. I can't imagine what it will take to get this back. We already spent nearly 3-1/2 hours getting the initial swap performed. We simply walked in, were immediately greeted by a customer service rep, told him we wanted to exchange Note 7s for S7 Edge and 3.5 hours later all was done. Even data transfer only took 8 minutes.
