Update: T-Mobile is selling the Galaxy Note 7 again
T-Mobile put a notice on the new Note 7 product listing, claiming that these devices “has been approved by the CPSC for all purchases and exchanges."
Original post (10/4): The Big Four carriers in the U.S. seem to be moving fast with replacing the defective Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units. T-Mobile is the latest to announce that it will resume the sale of the handset on October 5, nearly two weeks after Verizon and Sprint initiated the move.

T-Mobile said in a blog post on Monday that it would start selling the Galaxy Note 7 again both online and in stores across the country. That means T-Mobile customers can start waltzing into T-Mobile stores beginning tomorrow and get a new CPSC-approved Galaxy Note 7 equipped with a green battery icon.
The green battery icon is among the precautions Samsung has put in place to assure users that they’re receiving a safe replacement. The other measures include the Always On Display screen, the Power Off prompt screen and an online IMEI checker.
For those who previously owned a Galaxy Note 7, T-Mobile is waiving restocking fees and giving a refund for any accessories you bought along with the phablet from the carrier. You can also keep the $25 bill credit plus your pre-order bonuses like Netflix subscription, Gear Fit 2, or 256GB microSD if you decide to get a replacement unit.
AT&T is expected to follow suit in the near future, though it has yet to announce when it would restart the sale of the Galaxy Note 7. If you’ve already purchased a Note 7 replacement from the Verizon and Sprint shops, let us know in the comments what you think of your new handset.
