As previously announced earlier this month, Samsung has begun rolling out a software update to the Galaxy Note 7 that will disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular radios for good alongside prevent the phone from charging. This all comes as a suite of reports over the course of a few months surface sharing details on units of the handset erupting into flames and causing injury.
T-Mobile customers are the first in line to receive the Note 7 update which weighs in at 113.75MB. Although the changes mentioned above are indeed present, the Uncarrier says in their release notes that the only “enhancement” present is an always-on notification telling customers what to do with their Note 7.
This update will send an on-screen notification about the recall with action steps to take and will prevent the charge ability of the device.
It’s worth noting that T-Mobile warns users to have at least 30% battery life available and an active Internet connection before downloading and installing the update, but since the software will brick your phone anyway, does it even matter?
