    I am pretty sure the answer would contains words like those said by a politician but still i would go ahead and ask and prove myself right.

    Q1: We are not asking about your total production but you can very well give number of invites being sent to members of this forum. so why such a mystery in that?

    EDITED BY ADMIN: Please, one question per post.

    How about making changes to the Canadian shipping options? It is truly devastating that we have to pay $130 more than Americans for the phone after shipping, duty, and additional taxes upon the American tax already being included in the original price.

    I have my One since June so I should get the share invites pretty quickly after next monday, I guess.
    I was wondering if I get an email on receiving the invites, or do I have to check the oneplus account occasionally ? Also because I go on a holiday soon...

    Will French buyers who already received their OPO receive an headset, or is there any plan to include a headset with the OPO in the future to comply with French law?

    Q2: Are there any plans of making oneplus available in India through same eCommerce method which you are using currently? don't just say that you are trying to make it available in as many countries as possible as that is not the answer. and i am not just talking about India. other countries as well. are you planning on it? if your plans are for your next flagship then please let all those people from other countries know and move on. if your plans are like
    " yes we are working on it and will probably launch it next month" and then next month you make a thread "sorry for delay but lunching to so and so country delayed for another month" and so on for every month.

    What we want is not exact but approximate time. like " we are trying to launch next month but it might get delayed another month but even in worst case scenario it will be launched in these countries withing 3 months"

    See what i did there? tell us the worst case scenario so we all can quit. because many people here like me saved up for 700-800$ phone but with oneplus right on horizon i spent that extra money and now i am stuck. so if you say that your next flagship will be the one available in my country but not this one or this one will take 3-4 months in worst case scenario then i will start saving again and go for another phone.

    You've recently changed your RMA procedures so that the customer can choose his/her own shipping method instead of having to use an expensive pick-up service. Thanks! Could you give some additional details on that? Does the phone have to be returned to China (some speculated that that was the reason the pick-up service was so expensive), or does it go back to some regional center?

    Carl, David, now that the invites are rolling out faster. At what point do you expect an end user to add the phone to shipping basket and buy?

    Q3: How come there are more than enough phones being sold by re-sellers for double drive when you don't have enough to even give away here. Now i can only think of these reasons you can choose whichever fits or give us much better answer

    a. you are actually trying to make it sort of exclusive phone by making the people work so hard to get one and with the help of re-sellers making profit. so that you can earn way more profit. at-least that's how big companies and corporations or politicians act. nothing wrong with you. if you were actually only giving to the people for 350$ then you would be called crazy. but this reason sits perfectly well.

    b. 2nd reason is that your distribution team or whatever team responsible is not qualified enough.

    c. 2rd reason someone else is trying to profit. who must have some link your company to do that.

    d. You people are all new just out of college and this is your first job so you people really don't know what you are doing.

    e. you started with good intentions but it turned out to be more then you can chew and now you don't have enough money. so you are working to get some sponsors or money or going the eCommerce way to make some profit for selling it at double price and then get back in the game when you have enough money.

    f. fill this yourself

    I wouldn't hold my breath at any of the USA accessories. None of which are worth purchasing.
