    Duonger , Feb 8, 2015 :
    here i sit pondering how my son could be so clumsy and absent minded to have been carrying the oneplus one phone around during a swim meet to get bumped and dropping it in the pool. should i be mad? should i make him pay for a new one? what type of chores should i make him do to earn funds to buy it again? but then i realize, i need an invite?

    thought oneplus was now available to purchase without invite...so now im depressed.......

    woulnt you be?

    I would make him work for his next phone.
    After all, I worked for my money to get this phone!

    ...All I need is an invite now, haha!

    Sorry to hear that, but this section is for invite giveaways, read the forum rules.

    Dry it out thoroughly before you give up. Give it 2-3 days. You can try surrounding it with dry (uncooked) rice.

    I would try to get another invite but he would have to earn the phone with chores. Perhaps he will better appreciate it if he has to earn it.

    Yup, a Sony phone looks like your best bet.

    Kids will be kids, you shouldn't punish him. He's devastated already isn't he? I'm quite sure he won't make the same mistake again, if he does, he obviously doesn't have any respect for what he is given.
    So, how did he get the phone if you didn't know an invite was needed? Just curious.
    In answer to your last question, invites are still needed but there are days when Oneplus allows you to buy without one so keeps your eyes peeled on the the forums.

    Yes, I agree. Make them feel worse than what you feel, then tell them..."Damn, thanks...after talking to you, I don't feel so bad about myself"

    Make him work for his phone and better yet get himself an invite as well.

    I worked for my phone and you do end up appreciating it more that way

    He will appreciate it more if he pays for it with money he earned. Most Kid's today get everything handed too them on a silver platter.
