That's where you are wrong. Obviously I would be much more adamant about her getting rid of it if we had children in our house hold. The fact we would knowingly keep something like that with children is irresponsible parenting.
The fact that we don't have children means we don't have to consider anything else within our home except for potential property damage.
So yes children (for me) would definitely change the decision so it certainly has something to do with it.
Your own life isn't considered important enough to reduce the risk to your life?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
I honestly don't think it's that dangerous. These aren't lithium battery explosions, these are cells overheating and the phone catching fire, not a pierced lithium cell leaking out and the lithium reacting and shooting everywhere.
That said, I do not feel that my life is at risk with it in our house. I'm sure many people disagree and think I'm foolish for this, perhaps I am, but there have been no reported deaths, and other than the fake reports where cars burned down and such, overall damage has been minimal to property (what I would consider minimal).
So, I'm going to keep showing my wife new phones to consider every time I see one I think she may be interested in, and at some point she will get a new one (hopefully soon).
