Phone service provider Verizon is irritated. They want people to return their Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It's been recalled and poses a safety risk. Yet people still haven't returned their phones!

Fortune reports that Verizon released a special update that supposedly kills the phone. It prevents the phone from recharging. You'd think that would be enough for folks to return it. Nope. But that's okay because Verizon has a few more strategies up their sleeve.

Since the phone poses a safety risk, Verizon is programming the phones to default to a Verizon representative if anyone makes an outgoing call. And if that doesn't force people to pony up, the carrier might start charging for holding onto the phone. There's an incentive to return it though - $100 credit to the customers account.
