Further reports of Note 7s catching fire or exploding continue to roll in. AT&T and T-Mobile have officially suspended sales of the Note 7 (again), and sources tell Android Central that Verizon has halted sales internally and will be announcing similar measures in the near future.

T-Mobile has also added its name to the chorus of companies ceasing Note 7 sales. CEO John Legere tweeted that "out of an abundance of caution for customers," the company has stopped selling the Note 7.

While Samsung investigates multiple reports of issues, T-Mobile is suspending all sales of the new Note7 and exchanges for replacement Note7 devices.Customers can still bring their recalled Note7 or the new replacement Note7, along with accessories they purchased from T-Mobile, to a T-Mobile store for a full refund and choose from any device in T-Mobile's inventory. We'll waive any restocking charges, and customers who purchased during pre-order can keep the free Netflix subscription and Gear Fit or SD card they received.Customers should visit a T-Mobile retail store to begin the return process. For additional questions, customers can call our customer care line at 1-844-275-9309.

Sources have told Android Central that Verizon has also stopped selling the Note 7 as of Sunday, and would be making a formal announcement shortly.

Earlier, AT&T said it has officially stopped selling the Note 7. The carrier reached out to media outlets with the following:

Based on recent reports, we're no longer exchanging new Note7s at this time, pending further investigation of these reported incidents. We still encourage customers with a recalled Note7 to visit an AT&T location to exchange that device for another Samsung smartphone or other smartphone of their choice.

They also want to reiterate that anyone who has purchased a Note 7 and would like to exchange it should come to a store and do so, as announced on Friday.

In related news, the Verge writes that a Richmond Virginia man has contacted them with yet another story of the Note 7 and its fiery ways. Shawn Minter says his replacement Note 7 went up in flames and filled his bedroom with smoke early this morning. He provided receipts and images, which corroborate his story.
