    i didnt proceed on online renewal as the plan pack was downgraded even i use the same plan details. i manage to wait for 1hour and 52mins MOH (music on hold) on 211 rather than applying online.

    When you said plan pack was downgraded, are you referring to the data plan? So by applying through the hotline, you were able to keep your old plan details?

    The new SE, as well as other 2020 iPhone models, will not include the power adapter and EarPods in its packaging, this according to analyst Ming-chi Kuo. Apple is reportedly offsetting cost increases while making smaller packaging eco-friendlier and less costlier for shipping. Besides, it is encouraging Apple clients to purchase their AirPods to work with the newer iPhones.

    Not the SE. There are unboxing videos for the new SE that show EarPods and a power adapter in the box. Also, if you visit https://www.apple.com/ph/shop/buy-iphone/iphone-se, there's a What's in the Box section that includes the accessories. That piece of news is mainly talking about iPhone 12 from what I've read.

    I initially think, why they will do it? As I remember, doing housekeeping on all my iPhone boxes and found power charger, cables are left untouched. So it makes me say, its fine. If that will help Apple reduce the cost :)

    A Globe representative called me this afternoon that they will deliver the unit under a recontracted plan on July 27.

    They said the more expensive prices are only for their installment prices. I found this official response in the comments section:

    Here are the cash / non-installment prices of iPhone SE at our retail stores and Viber store:
    iPhone SE
    64GB - P26,115.5
    128GB - P30,390.5
    256GB - P36,090.5
    These prices are lower than Apple Online.​

    It wasn't a highlighted comment though (perhaps on purpose). But it sucks that they don't provide 0% installment and aren't very clear with their pricing.

    Looks like COVID-19 has them worried about people defaulting.

    Got the SE2020 from iStudio yesterday. If you plan to put tempered glass make sure it fits properly. Although its the same size with the IP7 and 8 the tempered glass ( 2 brands from istudio ) doesn't fit well so ended up putting a screen protector instead. Good thing I decided to have then put the tempered glass for me. Also the case seems to be a bit loose

    I was able to get an iPhone SE screen protector from Digital Walker this afternoon.
    It is really meant for the SE. Tried the 7/8 protector however they give a halo effect. It seems that SE really have a different curve that its predecessors.

    I got my SE yesterday from Digital Walker (BTB reservation). Had to go twice bec they delivered the units to the store late.

    I really like my iPhone 11 Pro but I'm loving this much smaller phone and the convenience of using fingerprint to unlock when wearing a mask!
