The Law – Using Mobile Phones When Driving

It’s illegal to use your phone while driving or riding a motorcycle unless you have hands-free access, such as:

  • a bluetooth headset
  • voice command
  • a dashboard holder

The law still applies to you if you’re:

  • stopped at traffic lights
  • queuing in traffic
  • supervising a learner driver

Hands-free

If you use your phone hands-free, you must stay in full control of your vehicle at all times.

Samsung To Recall All Galaxy Note7 Devices

Samsung To Recall All Galaxy Note7 Devices

This really only effects people in the USA but this is such a big world wide story it would be wrong not to report on it.  After all the Note7 is the talk of the technology world at the moment.

Samsung said last month it pointed to a “battery cell issue” being the cause.

A report sent by the company to regulators was more specific, saying a production fault had caused some of the batteries to be slightly larger than intended, which had put pressure on them when they were fitted inside phones, according to a leak reported by Bloomberg.

The following has been issued by Samsung :-

Samsung has announced an expanded voluntary recall on all original and replacement Galaxy Note7 devices sold or exchanged in the United States in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and in partnership with carriers and retailers. Since the affected devices can overheat and pose a safety risk, we are asking consumers with a Galaxy Note7 to power it down and contact the carrier or retail outlet where they purchased their device.

Consumers who have a Galaxy Note7 device can now exchange their phone for any Samsung smartphone, or receive a refund, under the terms of the expanded U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program.

If you bought your Galaxy Note7 from Samsung.com you should click here to process your refund or exchange. If you have questions, you should contact us at 1-844-365-6197 and we can help you.
