I heard a Rumor from Samsung that if you downgrade to another Samsung phone from your note 7, Samsung will waive the term until you upgrade when/if the new Note comes out. Did anyone else hear that? If not, I think that would be a great way for Samsung to win back some of their disgruntled customers.
I haven't heard this, though I know it's been asked several hundred times. I can't think of a way this would work smoothly in the coming months because folks across all carriers might have used their upgrade or joined a payment plan, locking them into another 2 year agreement/payment. I agree though, it would be nice if something could be done, but I definitely wouldn't count on it.
It may be in reference to what reportedly is being done in South Korea:
There are a few other threads about this on the forum as well, if you want to do a search.
Yes, so far announced only for Note 7 owners in Samsung's home country of South Korea, and only half price not free. That is all I have seen published.
