Samsung s Galaxy Note 7 is blowing up, and not just because it s the one of the best smartphones ever made according to Yours Truly, anyway .

No, it s been blowing up quite literally, with at least 35 units reported to have caught fire by Samsung s official count and probably more in reality .

So Samsung issued a voluntary recall for free replacements, and now T-Mobile US is providing a complete refund.

The company has stopped sales of the device after the official recall, and customers can get a refund for anything they paid for the device, including accessories.

You won t be charged restocking or shipping fees, and you can even keep the free Netflix subscription offered with the pre-order.

The issue so far appears to be related with the charging mechanism; the original incident appears to have happened while charging with a microUSB to USB-C adapter.
