    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!
    Because their service is the best in my area. I hate sprint, I'm not going to tmobile and I'm just not into Verizon.

    Bottom line: it's not enough to switch for but it stinks that I get a crappy box mainly because it seems they have to go out of their way to do it and why? AT&T is already in the phone itself. Plus my note edge came without headphones even though Samsung package ones came with them.

    Oh man, wow I'm not the only one that knows AT&T throws away a quality box and gives us a cheap bummed box. I saw the box at BB while the other providers have the Samsung box. Man AT&T stinks in that area.

    I'm not gonna lie, I was kinda disappointed when I didn't get that awesome black box that everyone had on the internet. This is like a leftover 2 weeks after thanksgiving! Man, just not the same.
    That sucks. I'm with Verizon and was concerned that we'd get crappy re-branded boxes (expecting a white box with a big Verizon logo on the box), but was pleasantly surprised to see from other Verizon customers who have posted pictures (I haven't got mine delivered yet - it will not be delivered until tomorrow). If its any consolation at least you can say you got your phone before me, and a ton of other people and aren't waiting for it to arrive tomorrow. Where you probably could walk into a store and buy it before it gets delivered to people who pre-ordered...

    Did it come with all the right components (cords, adapters, headphones, etc) that people getting the official Samsung boxes reported? Hopefully they didn't screw you and take out anything that non-AT&T customers would have received.
    No, it's this blue and white crap... But yeah... it's pretty crappy.
    I'm guessing you're still referring to the box, and not the phone. If you consider the phone to be "pretty crappy" that's not a good sign for the rest of us.

    And there's plenty of unbox vids with Samsung branding... and again all carriers are using these Samsung boxes, but nooooo.. AT&T decides to use their cheap box. But on top of that charge AT&T customers 30 bucks more and it's suppose to be "ahhh whatever."
    I do understand the simple logic "it's just a box"... but it's the principle of it, as consumers paying AT&T upgraded fees to feel cheated is uncalled for. Sometimes a line has to be drawn.
    Guess you know what your extra $30 went to (them buying, and packaging the phones into crappy looking boxes).

    It's more likely the boxes are sent to samsung and they are boxed like that from the factory.
    That would be the most logical thing, but as many of us know lots of companies do lots of illogical things. It wouldn't surprise me if Samsung sent them the phones in Samsung boxes, and someone at AT&T told their employees to unbox them, throw away the Samsung boxes, and re-box them in AT&T boxes.

    In retail presentation is everything. Seems like only Nexus and IPhones understand that. Att thinks that these "boxes" will help spread the news of how great their service is! Death Star strikes again!

    I keep seeing this, and let me set the record straight. At&t does NOT throw away the old samsung box. Samsung fulfils the orders to its customers specs. Each carrier has a custom box (yes, they are all different) for their custom model of Note 7. Each box contains a customized Note 7 (with the carrier software loaded and in most cases the carrier branding on the device), a customized instruction manual, a custom sim card, and all in the custom box. Samsung does all of that... not AT&T directly.

    So if they run out of stock of the blue note 7, it's not because they are busy re-boxing the device. It's how they come from the factory.

    What about the cat? Hopefully it didn't have to wait that long to figure out if it was dead or not.

    You will be the one to get the white box with the big red V on it. 😂

    Yeah, pretty ugly box. Not a great visual for buyers when I'm trying to sell this phone a couple of years from now.
    I was being sarcastic. The box won't affect your resale value imo lol

    1) the comparison does work, you just don't like it. Obviously i'm being sarcastic, but the idea is the same. There's a line at which everyone cares what their phone comes in. To me, that line is different than yours. That's okay, I want the full Samsung experience. I didn't buy the Samsung Note 7 to get more of an AT&T experience, I get that with their service.

    2) I haven't left AT&T over this because it's the smallest complaint I have about all the major companies. As I've stated a dozen times, I get that it's a "first world problem" and not as big a deal as other things. But I still dislike it and see no point. I'm not angry about it, but it is like a small pebble in my shoe that starts to be irritating.

    If no consumers ever draw lines on what they'll accept, companies would run CRAZY in screwing us all over. How we react when those lines are crossed, varies. To me, the reaction here isn't that one should leave the company, but I think the proper response is to simply let the company know we don't love what they did, and as one guy on here got a $60 credit, sometimes they'll listen. It's worth a shot.

    Dang that sux, it's also kinda odd when the AT&T branded S7E came in the Samsung box and not the normal AT&T packaging.. Here's hoping that you just got shorted on the headphones and you can have them send you a set, the S7E came with those as well.

    Cheers,

    I absolutely feel that person is justified if they did that because of the packaging.

    Funny thing is, while I was getting rocked on here for wanting the nice box, I unboxed my wife's AT&T Galaxy S7 on Wednesday, and the whole time I was thinking: "PLEASE say they put my Note in a nice box like this!" And then yesterday I got home and my wife's S7 box was in the trash......She clearly wasn't impressed.

    I got my Note 7 at 10:00 AM this morning, walked out the door of the store at about 10:45 AM, got home at about 11:05 AM and my horrendous looking AT&T Box will sit here for the next two years... while I enjoy the hell out of my new phone!
