T-Mobile to resume Galaxy Note 7 sales on Oct 5, joining Verizon and Sprint

Though Verizon and Sprint have been selling new safe Galaxy Note 7s for a couple of weeks now, T-Mobile has announced it will start selling fresh Note 7s starting October 5. This comes after a pretty hefty number of original defective Note 7s have been exchanged, though reserving new stock only for exchanges rather than new sales really was the responsible thing to do.

That leaves AT&T as the final big U.S. carrier to still not offer new Note 7s officially, though for its part it has updated its website to reflect that the Note 7 is available for in-store exchanges. As a higher percentage of its customers return their defective units, we can expect new sales from AT&T to commence soon.

If you have a T-Mobile Note 7 and still haven't returned it, there's literally no reason not to at this point as the carrier continues its very well-crafted exchange program and has plenty of stock at this point. But if you're been waiting to get an altogether new Note 7 and T-Mobile is your carrier of choice, this week is finally the time you can do it.
