Galaxy Note 7 battery restriction update to be rolled out by T-Mobile on Nov. 5
If you are still using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on T-Mobile, you will soon get a noticeable reminder that you really need to turn in the exploding smartphone. The carrier has revealed that starting tomorrow (Saturday, November 5) it will roll out an update to Note 7 owners that will restrict the charging of its battery to 60% of its normal capacity.
The update itself will have the version number N930TUVU2APK1. Besides the battery restriction, the update will also change the Battery indicator color to grey. Finally, the recall order for the phone that was issued about a month ago will begin to appear more frequently on your Note 7 after the update, in case you need a reminder.
Samsung had already announced that it would be releasing the battery restriction update for any Note 7 owners in Europe who have yet to turn in the smartphone, and now it seems that decision is continuing to roll out to other carriers. Indeed, it looks like some of them, such as all of New Zealand’s mobile networks, are not going to allow Note 7 owners to connect to them at all. Combine that with the bans on airplanes in the U.S. and other countries, and it looks like the Note 7 has turned into a true pariah.
Have you still not traded in or discarded your Galaxy Note 7 yet?
