The Galaxy Note 7 is no longer in market and Samsung asked its customers to return the phablet in stores to replace it with another smartphone or receive a full refund of the expense. Users who, for some unknown reason, will not listen to the advice will have to leave at home your device, if you want to catch a plane and not passing up to 10 years in prison .
The Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) announced over the weekend the absolute prohibition to bring the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on board planes. Now passengers can not board the plane with the phablet, and, if they refuse to comply with the order, will be denied boarding . Samsung will inform its customers with an SMS. This should avoid problems at security checkpoints.
Even Alitalia following the disposal of the US Department of Transportation, it said that the Galaxy Note 7 may not be brought on board. As evidenced by the numerous cases reported, the phablet emits smoke due to overheating (Samsung has yet to discover the reason ), and this may cause the battery to explode.
The Galaxy Note 7 is considered a explosive material and is therefore subject to the regulations in force in the United States. Passengers who do not respect the ban face a fine up to $ 179,933 and up to 10 years imprisonment for committing a federal crime.
