FAA officially bans airline passengers from using Note 7 in flight

Or, in plain English: Now that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has formally approved Samsung's decision to recall all these phones, it's also formally illegal to use them on a plane. Fortunately, most United States retail locations should be able to offer consumers replacement Note 7 phones beginning 21 September. However, fans who chose to wait until it's safe to buy the Note 7 will be able to get the device on September 28 in South Korea and "other countries when conditions allow".
The lawsuit by Jonathan Strobel may be the first in the United States by a Samsung phone user against the South Korean company over a battery defect linked to the Note 7.
It was seen as a big enough safety hazard that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a warning to discourage owners from turning on and charging their Note 7 units on board aircrafts.
The Note 7 started on the wrong foot, and it affected Samsung's image badly.

"He has a deep second-degree burn, roughly the size of the phone, on his right thigh", Strobel's lawyer Keith Pierro said. The new replacement units, on the other hand, will have a green one, according to a ZDNet report citing Samsung.
Critics say Samsung didn't follow commission rules that call for companies to coordinate the handling of recalls with the commission, including the use of joint public announcements, although Baxter said Thursday that his company notified the commission before it announced it would stop selling the Note 7 on September 2.
If your phone is under the recall you should contact your cell phone provider or the place where you originally bought the phone to get a full refund or a new phone free of charge.
Brooklyn office worker Joe Franco said he was frustrated, especially after getting conflicting information from his cellphone carrier, Sprint, about how to get a replacement. "But I'm scared it's going to explode", said Franco.
