Samsung's recall of the Galaxy Note 7 had been going relatively well for the most part until this week when a Galaxy Note 7, supposedly belonging to the replacement batch, caused the evacuation of a Southwest flight.

USA carriers are offering customers to swap their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacement unit with another available smartphone. What might be the last straw is the recent "safe" Note 7 fiasco in a Southwest flight. Samsung has recalled about 2.5 million potentially hazardous Galaxy Note 7 units and the company has replaced the majority of faulty devices.

All passengers and crew members disembark the airplane safely. Sprint is also allowing customers to exchange their replacement Galaxy Note 7 for any other smartphone. But some customers who got a new Note 7 started reporting problems of overheating. Other carriers in the USA are also following suit.

This news comes from Bloomberg, which cites a single anonymous source as saying AT&T is still "considering" what it will do next, but a decision will be made by Friday.

"Samsung may now be stuck with an expensive and reputation denting second recall", Johnson said.

The reason why Samsung reached out and attempted to make some clarifications could be related to the fact that many U.S. mobile carriers have announced that they will allow owners of replaced Note 7 units to swap their devices with any other phone in their offering.

"A$3 ny Verizon customer concerned about the safety of their replacement Note 7 smartphone ... will be able to exchange it for an alternate smartphone", a Verizon spokeswoman said.

The recall has cost Samsung about $1 billion.

According to Fortune, it is time for Samsung to seriously consider permanently terminate the sales of the Note 7.
