    Mm...that is Apple customer service. Same experience. I left my number and callback from Apple Singapore (I think) occured within 5 minutes.

    Thought so too, but that's the explanation I got from the 2nd level Apple support guy I talked to (I forgot the title... something to the tune of Coverage Admin, I think). I'm still a bit bummed of losing a whole month of my service and repair coverage but oh well.

    It's here!
    For some reason, warranty coverage is a little over a year.:)

    I was very lucky to have found someone on FB Marketplace who doesn't use Apple products and was gifted with a HomePod mini for Christmas. He sold it to me at only P5,000! So happy!

    I picked it up from their Megamall branch. Initially they quoted me 1.7k but final charge was 1,566.

    Thanks! Shipping to JAC NY ($107.79) and then to Megamall (P1,566) is approximately P6,766. Bit the bullet and got one from GH this afternoon for 7k. ;-)

    1,566 was for a pair so I'm not sure how much it would have been if it's just for one.

    Oh, then it's a good deal. Around 1k savings for a Homepod mini. I would've ordered thru Apple HK but the delivery estimate is from 2nd-3rd week of Feb.

    Finally! I bought an open box HomePod from FB Marketplace for 5k only! Not bad since the HomePod was activated just last April 5. :D

    Anyone have any recommendation where to buy Homepod Mini’s locally? Preferably in-store and not online

    Was planning to save up for a Sonos soundbar ($500+) until I learned about this Homepod Mini. Perhaps setting up two of these babies for stereo sound will be a better option. I didn't pay attention during launch date so I'm still just catching up. It costs CAD$129 (+ 15% tax) here so two for under $300 isn't too bad.

    Don't care much for Siri and all that voice-command stuff. I just need a speaker for my TV and AppleTV.
