Right before the Holiday Season, Samsung made an official announcement regarding the Galaxy Note 7 in the United States. In a combined effort with the U.S. carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and others, Samsung is killing Galaxy Note 7 devices in the United States and abroad.The last update currently being rolled out by Verizon renders the device incapable of being charged, and can only be used if the device is connected to a charger. The software version MMB29M.N930VVRS3APL2 will be bringing the short and ill-fated run of Samsung’s prized phablet to an end.If you are among the Verizon users who are still holding on to their Galaxy Note 7, be prepared to see the following message after the new update:
