    Its frustrating because I can't spend most of my day online looking for invites... I do have a life. But I do understand why they are doing it this way.

    i hear ya. i feel the same way too, but you need to understand why they are doing this. they're a new company so doing this is like an insurance where they won't go bankrupt and etc. just keeping trying. never settle!

    Sharing is a great idea. Getting people frustrated to the point of begging - not so good.

    Mega annoying, but brilliant marketing though, they actually make people be salesmen for them without paying them a dime ;)
    P.S. The idea of begging to spend my own $350 is revolting to me.

    I have a feeling this invite begging (and even pre-order) system won't sustain for long. They have to open up to general population soon, else people will lose interest and move on to other phones.

    I think it's a fantastic idea. Sure its being abused by the folks selling the invites but that is only a temporary problem. At the core its how more products should function, By referrals from people you know and trust instead of a sales person trying to sell you some junk to benefit him.

    But sharing an invite with a random stranger on a forum is not really a "referral" from a friend/colleague.

    It could also be just the opposite, the system goes, so does the hype and the phone becomes another "zte"... :)

    I think the phone has enough to sustain on its own merits, than pure hype.

    I think it's that way only in the short term. While there were no traditional advertisements for this phone there sure was a lot of buzz from all the tech sites. It caused a frenzy. In the near future the system will be much more casual I imagine. The only problem I see with invites right now is that after someone has purchased there is a pretty long wait time for them to receive invites to share with their friends. Honestly I'm surprised that people share their invites with strangers online. I have a slew of friends wanting this device after I showed them but nobody has been able to get an invite in my social circle,
