Go to an airport these days and you’ll hear a new announcement alongside that one about not leaving bags unattended – it’s about the dangers of the Samsung Note 7. Many owners of the phone are still hanging onto it despite two recalls and many stories of it overheating and sometimes catching fire.

Now, Samsung is offering people up to a $100 dollar credit to turn their phones in.

Omar Gallaga is with the Austin-American Statesman’s 512 Tech. He says people don’t want to let go of the phone, despite the dangers, because people just really like this phone.

“Samsung has actually done a really good job the past few years in building brand loyalty,” Gallaga says, “and the Note 7 was supposed to be the crowning achievement of this year.”
