On letstalk website, on the checkout page, there is a section saying whats included in the box and it says - Standard Battery, Wall Charger, Getting Started Guide, USB Cable. No mention of headphones. Does that mean we won't be getting it in the box?? I remember Epic 4G came with real good quality headphones and I was expecting something similar from E4GT.

That's the same with a lot of phones now. They're always ****ty headphones that you'll never use, so why worry about it?

response: "It just goes to show that there just after our munny! They dont care about uz!"

I guess you are right!! After using Epic's earbuds, my expectations were raised a little about E4GT's earbuds and maybe thats why I am feeling it so much. Plus my current earbuds are almost ready to hit e-trash, so I would not have to drop some extra $$ to get one to use with E4GT. Why oh why:mad:???

Seems par for the course these days. My Palm Pre came with ear buds two plus years ago, the photon I got a few weeks ago, not so much.

Kinda reminds me of when manufacturers stopped including printer cables.

Sammy gives good earbuds, both in NS4G and the Epic 4G. If this is true, I'll be sad panda. Hopefully the slew of unboxings around the corner will prove this wrong.

I agree that the Epic 4G earbuds aren't bad. I actually use them more often than the more expensive Sony earbuds I bought prior to getting my Epic. I'll likely keep them if, when I get my Epic Touch, there aren't earbuds included.

So, in case we dont get buds in the package, is there any earbuds with mic, with decent sound and not too expensive (around $15 range)?? I am no audiophile, but still want to be able to enjoy my music and as well as the ease of hands free conversation...

I'm more upset they don't include a screen protector in the package. It's not like their are a bunch of screen protectors available by the time the phone is released so getting one that is made for the device on release day is not an easy task.

I ordered one already but if it is not here by the time the phone comes, it will just sit in the box and wait......To me, this is more upsetting.

Yes, the idea with the printer cables is the same with headphones. They figure that a good percentage of people already have a set and wouldn't mind not getting a new pair. People are just going to re-use the existing pair or go out and purchase a better pair from a third-party.

I'm not worried at all with the phone not coming with-out headphones. It's an over-all great looking phone and if I want headphones I wouldn't mind going out and purchasing a good pair. :)

Headphones? Who needs headphones? The Galaxy SII is so advanced it beams sound directly into your brain cutting out the middle man. :p

Seriously. Those headphones are nothing compared to an official Samsung mhl adapter. Keep your oblong and uncomfortable headphones. BTW to the dude asking for a screen protector... I've never ever heard of any cell phone that comes with a screen protector.

The headphones included with any phone are the definition of horrible..

Do yourself a favor and spend $50 or so on some nice earbuds, or a few hundred on some good headphones. Your ears will thank you
