    Yes it is a generic AT&T box
    Ahhhhhh.. Maaaaaaan.

    Its not enough that they brand the back of the phone... they gotta put their generic box on it as well. I would like an explanation to why? Does Samsung charge them for the box as well that they feel compel to use their own AT&T box? Which then I'm not so sure since compared to other carrier if I'm not mistaken AT&T charges more for the Note7... is that due to Samsung using AT&T box instead of their own?

    Samsung has to place their Phones and accessories with AT&T box which then perhaps Samsung charges a fee which then AT&T attaches more money to the Note7.

    My life right now. Would my boss consider this multi-tasking?
    Looks like yours is being delivered the next day. Maybe there is still hope for me.

    I also just put a couple hours of vacation time today on my time sheet to cover my obsessive checking of AT&T and UPS website (although mine still says "preparing to ship"

    I asked why ATT is using different packing materials instead of the Samsung box. This is the response from ATT:

    Jessica G: I do apologize, AT&T does have a contract with Samsung provider. Our AT&T warehouse is the one that processes the orders. We as an AT&T family like to brand our packages, however all the original packaging is provided in the box when delivered. I am very sorry you have been affected by this. I can guarantee you that all the products shipped out are original Samsung products.

    I replied with: "Except the box. I understand the process. My question was why. The S7 had original Samsung packaging, the Note 7 does not. Why?"

    *stirring the pot over there lol*

    The explanation is that carriers are money-grubbing POS and everything is seen by them as nothing more than an ad opportunity. Did you see where Verizon is going to force their crap app downloads on people now?

    For those that are new to Samsung...there is an app on Google play that lets you disable any and all bloatware without having root. I've been using it for about 6 months now and it works great.

    Did you preorder at a store? If so that seems to be a common issue. Rant and rave at the store and get credit.

    Actually, current estimates are that to scan someone the size of a person for transport and store the data, using quantum entanglement, you would need to fill the Empire State Building with 8 TB hard drives.

    That's an improvement from the "stack of hard drives half way across the galaxy" that it was 10 years ago
    We have some very large mountains here in Colorado that I hear are filled with hard drives. I am sure that is what they are using.
