My Samsung Verizon Galaxy S7 Edge has reset 3 times in 30 days. It wipes out all data and returns to factory defaults. The last time it did this a few days ago, it completely quit working. Verizon refuses to do anything. ( they want $300 to send it back to fix it). Phone is under warranty. They claim they sent out an Android update and it has a bug that causes this. Phone is dead. Beware!!

I don't have the S7 Edge, but I do have an S7, but on the T-Mobile network.


I just had an OS update about 2 or 3 days ago and it did not cause any issues.  I fail to believe that Samsung's updates have anything to do with this.  That being said, who is it that holds the warranty on the phone?  It's probably Samsung, and I would be in touch with them, that's for sure.
