    I don't think the staff devices the devices. It's more likely the boxes are sent to samsung and they are boxed like that from the factory.
    Yeah, that's my assumption as well.

    It has to be a reason that AT&T is charging $880 for the Note7 compared to the original $850.

    I dunno. Things like boxes are never a big deal. The Note 4 box was ugly af, but the phone and its performance sure weren't. LoL
    I loved that Note 4 wood grain box! Lol. I still have it. (Phone box hoarder)

    I get it, but I still feel like it's a stretch. Why? Because 2 very important things hold true.

    1. No one forces someone to be with AT&T, so if the box (or the principle behind it) is that much of a source of contention, there are other providers.

    2. It's still the same phone.

    Obviously there's competition out there... I understand that, customers can go elsewhere over something as simple as packaging disagreement Lol. But at the end of day it doesn't change the fact AT&T is using their cheap box and having AT&T customers pay $880 compared to $850.

    I'll also point out that AT&T removes the data toggle front the quick settings. They do it to all the Galaxy phones. Why? Now I have to install a custom toggle app (I use power toggle) which is hardly as good as a native toggle since it is just a shortcut to the settings page. Why does AT&T take Samsung's nice phones and remove functionality that hurts their customers? I partly blame Samsung. Does AT&T mess with the iphone (besides installing bloatware)? No. Apple won't allow it. Samsung has enough pull to tell AT&T, listen, sell the phones as we create them, or you don't get to sell them. I think AT&T will change tunes quickly.

    On the box issue, do iPhones from AT&T come in an AT&T box, or from Apple's original boxes?

    There's a good question - but based on everything else the Carriers can't do to the iPhones, I would imagine the answer will be Apple?

    get that some don't care about the packaging, so I'm assuming you also wouldn't care if your phone came with a thick coating of dog excrement, as long as the phone is inside, right?

    Laugh about it all you want, but until I hear an actual reason for why AT&T has to have different packaging, it'll annoy me. It's like having a little rock in your shoe. It's annoying. It's a small thing, but it lessens the overall experience as a consumer, and there's no reason for that. To me, it SCREAMS "yes, enjoy this phone. But remember who's in charge here." AT&T needs to provide the service and then keep their hands off the rest of my Samsung experience. Back when they subsidized the cost, that's different. But now I'm paying for this thing.

    That comparison was...well...let's just say it didn't work.

    But like I previously stated, if that were so much of an area of contention for so long, leave them. I never understood why folks complain about a company, yet stay. I leave if I'm unhappy. Simple. To each, their own.

    Either way, I assume that you will be enjoying your phone....so congrats agead of time in getting it!

    They should just put the phone in a bubble wrap or something and send it you. Anyway doesn't matter and I'm pretty sure you are fine with it.

    But does that box make your phone go faster? Do it provide extra protection? Does it make you dinner? I just don't get it lol

    So many words missing here, but I'll try to extrapolate what you were trying to say.

    Yes, I'd be fine with HOWEVER it was sent as long as everything was there and in one piece. Boxes aren't used for anything after but to hold dust....so....

    Yep that's what I said you will be fine.. Nothing wrong with it. Individual preference.
    Similarly many of us prefer nice unboxing experience, nice boxes etc. And yes I speak with my wallet, I'm with T-Mobile.

    I'm just happy it was blue and not orange. I hated those gross orange boxes. My phone seemed to do fine in the box.

    The point is we want the original Samsung Galaxy Note 7 box. The pretty black one with the Blue on it. That's all. As for some people not having theirs yet...sorry, but that's not this argument. I don't have mine either. But I'd like to know its in a pretty box when I do. If I do change carriers, it won't be over the box. I won't die over the box. I won't even cry over it, but I WILL voice my opinion. The box is a part of the over all experience for me! I see all these awesome unboxing videos knowing thats not what awaits me. But such is life ๐Ÿ˜Š
