Because of fears that the phone may catch fire while in flight, several international carriers – which include Etihad Airways, Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Virgin Australia – have already issued advisories in the use of the phablet, essentially banning anybody from using it during their flight.

Cebu Pacific is the latest international carrier to ban the use of the Note 7 in flights, both international and domestic, until further notice. The ban begins today, Sept. 11.

While you can have the phone in your person while on the flight, it must be turn off during the duration. They also ask that customers not put the phone in their check-in baggage.

Samsung has earlier issued guidelines on the Galaxy Note 7 replacement program in the Philippines, and has asked consumers to stop using the phablet if it has not been replaced yet.

  1. Wala na, durog na ang Samsung. Lalabas na ang iPhone 7, bili ka lang ng bluetooth headset, okay na! (October or November, sakto sa Pasko.) Also, the likes of Oppo and Lenovo are beating Samsung very badly in the midrange and entry level market.

    RIP Samsung.
