doncameron, I know the feeling of waiting for a phone. Let me make sure you have the most up to date information regarding the Note 7 recall.
On Wednesday, 9/21/16, Samsung's new Galaxy Note 7 will be available. Verizon strongly advises that you replace your current Galaxy Note7 with a new Galaxy Note 7. Verizon is waiving the restocking fee when you return or exchange the device to the location you purchased it from. For your inconvenience, Samsung is providing $25 off any accessory or a $25 bill credit.
