The BoomGate drama continues, as today we just got word that the unfortunateÂ Samsung Galaxy Note7 got banned on all US flights starting from tomorrow. If you canâ€™t let go your precious droid just yet, well, todayâ€™s piece of news should be a strong incentive, as your life with theÂ Samsung Galaxy Note7 just became infinitely more difficult, i.e. youâ€™ll not be able to board your smartphone when flying US companies. Now, if youâ€™re that type who doesnâ€™t get out much, I think todayâ€™s news wonâ€™t affect you at all (just kidding).
Now, if you havenâ€™t returned your Note7, not being able to fly with it should be reasonÂ enough to do it ASAP. The United States Department of Transportation (I first wrote transpiration) just issued an emergency order with regard to banning allÂ Samsung Galaxy Note7 devices from all domestic flights. If you think thatâ€™s a radical step, just imagine how serious the problem with the Note 7 really is. The ban becomes effective on October 15, tomorrow that is, and from that day you wonâ€™t be able to board a flight within/originating in/going to the United States (legally speaking) carrying aÂ Samsung Galaxy Note7.
Tâ€he U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), today announced it is issuing an emergency order to ban all Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphone devices from air transportation in the United States. Individuals who own or possess a Samsung Galaxy Note7 device may not transport the device on their person, in carry-on baggage, or in checked baggage on flights to, from, or within the United States. This prohibition includes all Samsung Galaxy Note7 devices. The phones also cannot be shipped as air cargo. The ban will be effective on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at noon ET.â€
If you will disregard the Note 7 ban, your smartphone will be confiscated and youâ€™ll face a fine. If youâ€™ll be packing the smartphone in checked luggage trying to avoid the ban, youâ€™ll face criminal prosecution plus a hefty fine. If you are seen in the possession of a Note7 by an airline rep, youâ€™ll be denied boarding the plane unless you ditch it. If caught in the act inside the plane, i.e. toying with the infamous IED by Samsung, youâ€™ll have to, let me quote again:
â€œpower off the device, not use or charge the device while aboard the aircraft, protect the device from accidental activation, including disabling any features that may turn on the device, such as alarm clocksâ€
