I just bought $100 airtime and got a free 1661. I got home, opened the box, and there were no headphones inside. I went back to the store and they opened two other boxes and there were no headphones in those either, so I figured maybe headphones weren't included anymore. I activated the phone, but then figured I'd ask customer service while I was on the phone with them, what was up with the headphones. They said the phones should still include headphones and to bring it back to the store. I told them the store had two other boxes with no headphones. So anyway, SO put in a ticket and someone is supposed to call me back, but now I'm thinking store employees are swiping the headphones from all the boxes. If it was one box that wouldn't be a big deal, but three different boxes is definitely not a coincidence!

Has anybody else who bought a 1661 recently had it come with no headphones?

It could be that those boxes were store returns. Sometimes when phones are returned, the store clerks don't check to see if all the accessories are being returned as well as the phone.

I bought one about 9 months ago and I don't think it came with headphones.

Bought my 1661, no headphone was included. It was an open box. I didn't know there should be a headphone. Not a big deal but it would be nice.

Perhaps one way to make sure you get the original content is to get a box that still has the nokia seal intact.

BTW is it a stereo or mono headphone that is supposed to be included? How's the quality?

my 1661 never came with headphones. But that was a year ago. Maybe the new stock has headphones now?
