T-Mobile is the first[1] major carrier to push an update[2] to remaining Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets that will prevent the phone battery from charging. Once updated, the phones will display an on-screen notification about the recall[3] with instructions and they will no longer have the ability to charge. The update, which will essentially make the phones unusable[4], will also reach AT&T and Sprint customers on January 5.

However, Verizon customers shouldn’t expect it anytime soon[5]. The Note 7 was plagued with battery problems that caused some units to overheat and catch fire. This resulted in two global recalls[6], the permanent ceasing of production[7] and tons of bad press for Samsung.

This update is the last nail in the coffin of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s remaining in the wild.
