For those who are trying Alexa in Brazil, I could made it work by forcing all traffic from a BOSE HOME 500 through a OpenVPN connection at a server in USA, I used a EDGEROUTER LITE for it.
If you reconnect BOSE to your local ISP, Alexa wont work again, so keep it at VPN.
Im still having problems with Alexa app, I couldnt download it from Google Play even if I connect my phone throught VPN. If someone could achieve it, please tell me!

I contacted the reseller of Bose in Greece and they said that Alexa works fine in Home Speaker 500 in Greece. However, the one that I bought in Dubai doesn't allow Alexa to be activated. Bose UAE tried to help resolve this issue, however, nothing worked. Alexa is still not functioning in my Speaker 500 in Athens.
What's the truth here? Does Alexa work in Greece or not? Is the speaker shipped hardware locked?
