Default Cell Phone Purchased

After a couple of posts here and a bit of research, I ordered a Samsung S7 directly from the Samsung website. It is unlocked, 32GB and it was $120 off the regular price and included a charging black and VR headset that I'll probably gift to someone or sell. Came to $549. Stopped by a local Cricket store and they said they would handle transferring everything from my old S4.

Does it come with an explosion proof case?

Yeah, you might have a rough time boarding a flight with it too.

My mistake then, I thought the S7's were having issues too.

I have an S4 and see no reason to replace it right now, they are great phones

Nice! I expect you'll be happy with it.

Activating that new phone is a simple job, but if the Cricket people are doing it for a small price (or free), nothing wrong with that.

Like Cracker said, it was the large Note that had the fire issue. I had lived with cracked glass and storage limitations for too long.

You can buy the replacement glass and replace it yourself. Pretty easy project.
