Samsung, the Angel of Death: Exploding Note 7 phones will be bricked


Re: Is this even legal in the EU?

Our company served notice on Samsung that should our equipment be degraded they would be sued for a laundry list of civil claims.

We were requested to bring our devices to a certain service centre (there are many in the country) whereupon a patch would be added that would remove existing, and prevent future, deleterious patch transmissions. The technician, who we have known for years, confirmed it is a 'good' patch and that several others have been given the same protection - after their lawyers contacted Samsung.

We were not required to a sign any document although they 'hoped' we would be discrete with the information!
