Yeah.... What the title says. I bought the both the SIII and Note II outright. My $550 SIII came with the wall charger, USB cable, phone, Quick Start and Warranty guides, and earbuds/headset with three extra sets of buds.
I bought my Note II today. And when I got home, I found that this phone (which is $100 more), didn't come with earbuds.
What is up with that?
I also came from the BlackBerry family before switching to Android. When the Bold 9000 came out, it also came with a carrying holster right out of the box.
I'm more than a little disappointed that Samsung is charging so much for a device and is taking out things offered on previous devices. I dunno, maybe it's the lawsuits Apple is saddling them with :(
