Samsung bricking ALL Note 7 devices

Proving yet again you never really own "connected software" and just 'rent it'

FU Samsung US -

I am kind of curious to know whether phones running Cyanogen mods if T-Mobile can still push the update through to brick your phone.

It brings up a really interesting question for consumers as we move into an IOT pervasive world……when after the sale do the rights belong to the consumer? When do you have a situation where a vendor can “reach in” and withdraw a consumers rights??

Where is the ACLU when you need it :)

and yes in case you are wondering what i'm replacing my Note 7 with.....I ordered the Huawei Mate 9 through Amazon where they are selling the unlocked international dual sim version with 6gb ram and 128gb rom for only $899 - 

The real question is do I dump Tmobile once this unlocked "fully paid for" phone arrives.
