    People love the OnePlus One, and that may not always be a good thing. I’m sure many of you are aware that invites are flooding the forums. Seeing so many users ecstatic about receiving their phones puts a smile to my face and makes all the long hours worth it for our whole team.

    However, we’ve also received an alarming number of customer support queries regarding stolen or opened packages. The OnePlus One is too popular! Boxes left on doorsteps are easily taken and creates a huge mess for everyone involved. Because we sell devices at almost no margins, it is extremely costly for us to replace a stolen device.

    This problem is especially prevalent in the United States. Therefore, starting on Monday July 21st, we will begin shipping all packages via USPS with sign on delivery, which we believe is the best way to ensure the devices are delivered safely into our fans’ hands. That is our most important goal. We know you’ve all been waiting too long for the phone, and any avoidable roadblocks to that goal must be addressed. Unfortunately, sign on delivery means increasing the shipping cost by $2.35 USD, but this cost is well worth averting the high risk of theft.

    July has been a month of adjustments. We are learning many new things as we increase volumes and making the changes that we feel benefit will our customers. We hope you understand.

    Never Settle

    Good, can't imagine anything worse than waiting so long only to have the device stolen.

    Syphilis, that might be worse, actually.

    That really makes sense. Would be nice if you could implement this for Europe as well!

    Edit: seems this is already happening in Europe, my bad

    How about you make 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. @Steven W

    Appreciate the heads-up. Now I know to ship to work instead of home.

    Can other people sign? because I live in Mexico, but have a US shipping address. So I need other people to sign.
