    You will get:

    1 USB-C cable
    1 Adaptive Fast Charger
    1 Pair of earbuds
    1 Micro USB 2.0 to USB OTG dongle
    1 Micro USB 2.0 to USB-C adapter

    Oh...and a Note 7.
    So the OTG dongle is micro usb and not usb-c? Does that mean you'd have to plug a dongle into another dongle to use it? That seems an odd way to do it.

    AT&T doesn't package (or re-package) anything. It is all done at the Samsung factory as part of the custom packaging process the carriers pay for, just like the ugly carrier logos on the back. DO you think they have some person stamping all the logos by hand somewhere in the USA? The carriers order it packaged the way they want it packaged. AT&T doesn't open all the Samsung boxes, throw them out, put them in AT&T boxes then steal your $1.00 value headphones. That's just plain silly and time wasting.
    Obviously they don't technically 'repackage' them. But there's no good reason to have just their phones put into stupid boxes when Samsung packages their stuff so nicely. Sorry, but I enjoy the nice packaging when I spend $800+ on a device. And I wouldn't mind them removing the $1 earbuds if they sold them for $1 to me, but they try to hustle me out of $15-$20 for the headphones I should've gotten to begin with. And at the end of the day, it's the principle. Again, there's no good reason for it.

    I asked this question on AT&T website. Will the Galaxy Note 7 come in original manufacturer box, or will it come in AT&T branded orange and white box. And the reply was. ​Greetings, That’s a great question, I’m glad you asked! The Samsung Galaxy Note 7, is a brand new device and will come in Samsung’s original packaging. It will also include the following items: · Quick Charge Charging Block · USB Type C Cable and USB Connector · Stereo Headest · S Pen · SIM tray tool Hope this helps! Rocco, AT&T Community Specialist

    It is a big deal. Samsung packages these the way they do for a reason. AT&T has no good reason to re package them. Also, I bet that means that they've removed the headphones and Lord knows what else in the process of their repackaging. They did that with my Note 4.

    I remember that with my Note Edge. I called and complainted and received a free pair from AT&T. I prefer Samsung packaging but as long as I get everything I'll be ok.

    That's good. I'm glad they hooked you up. Again, it's not about just the cheap earbuds, it's about these carriers having too much sway. Samsung obviously is fine giving us the cheap buds, so butt the hell out, AT&T.

    I always keep the box. Gives it a better resale value or for warranty purposes.

    Except AT&T is buying these to sell to AT&T customers.

    Meh the box gets put in the storage closet with the rest of my Note boxes from AT&T within a hour of buying it. Yeh the black box is nice but soon as I get home that's where it will go for another year plus.

    The point is there is no good reason other than that's what AT&T wants and that's what they get. Samsung delivers the devices to AT&T in their box of choice. Maybe (and for the love) you'll get a fancy Samsung box you can put in a drawer or the closet and forget about it. It's a freaking box!

    This. Always a plus to have the box when it's time to sell.

    They do this because they always have. It's their marketing strategy. I doubt any US carriers will have the headphones - I think the last headphones Verizon had was from the HTC M7.
    Samsung puts them in the package. I got them last year with my Note 5 but I bought mine at T-Mobile.

    Damn, looks like I'm buying international or settling for an unlocked s7.

    I seriously don't get why America is the only place with this issue.
    You can disable any and all bloat, using the app Package Disabler Pro, it doesn't require root. It is only for Samsung devices. People on a carriers used it on the Note 5.

    I keep all my packaging because I resell many of my phones.

    I almost understand the keeping the box for resale, but every single one... 100%, all in total, etc of the at&t model note 7s come in the same butt ugly box. Personally, If I saw someone trying to sell a at&t device in a non- at&t box, I would run, because clearly it's a scam... all, each one, 100% of all of them are in the at&t box.

    There is no "original " Samsung box. Every carrier has customers boxes and customer manuals. Maybe they look more like the others, but no where is it stated that 1 customers box is more official than any other. (Time to de-bunch the panties on this subject)

    because north american carriers suck.... they just can't let the OEMs sell the device the way it was originally designed. Bloatware, tramp-stamps, various carrier mandated restrictions and omissions...etc. Packaging included.

    AT&T boxes are the worst. They take away from the premium feel that Samsung has tried so hard to exude for a few years now. You would think by now Samsung has enough pull to be able to talk att into using their choice of boxes. If Apple can do it why can't Samsung.

    I know, but the OTG that comes with Note 7 is USB-C (clearly stated and shown in the unboxing video I linked) - you said the OTG was Micro USB.

    This is a thread about the AT&T Note? Because if yes, those items ARE straight from the tin.
