AT&T has confirmed in a statement issued to The Verge that it’s discontinuing sales of the Galaxy Note 7. In addition to removing the handset from its lineup, the carrier also revealed that it wouldn’t allow customers in possession of a recalled Note 7 to exchange it for a replacement model. Instead, they’ll be able to choose a different Samsung device or an offering from another manufacturer.

“Based on recent reports, we’re no longer exchanging new Note 7s at this time, pending further investigation of these reported incidents,” said an AT&T spokesperson. “We still encourage customers with a recalled Note 7 to visit an AT&T location to exchange that device for another Samsung smartphone or other smartphone of their choice.”

Now that AT&T   the second-largest carrier in the US  has actually gone ahead and put an end to sales of the Galaxy Note 7, it shouldn’t be too much longer until other operators follow suit and place a permanent hold on sales of the unit. After all, no service provider wants to endorse a so-called “safe” product that has the potential to burst into flames at any moment in time without warning.
