    Received my OPO last Friday and displaced one of my iPhones with it. Absolutely love it. A little big for the hip pocket but I just love working with that screen and the apps all work marvelously. Really slick product. Set up was a breeze. Have I mentioned that I love it?

    Anyway, went online today to order another for my son. Wanted two of the flip front covers and two of the new JBL ear bud sets(the red ones that were substantially discounted). Witnessed the crash but saw the the ordering period was to be extended by 2 hours. No worries...right? Wrong...went back on about 20 minutes prior to the 2 pm EDT close and tried to purchase. PayPal would not process the order (repeatedly). This was not a case of insufficient funds in the PayPal account as it is linked to my Amex Platinum card. Tried again and again but kept on getting kicked back to "the merchant site". Nonsense. Finally, I timed out with about 2 minutes left. Gave up.

    I expect an invite at some point (as I just bought my first OPO) and I'll just go that route. Only thing that is still annoying is that the accessories were discounted pretty well today. Oh...I couldn't move the JBL ear bud to my basket, either. Presumably, I will have to pay full price if I wish to purchase these down the line.

    Absolutely marvelous cell phone. IMO, horrible execution by the commercial teams. Compliance with the "rules" (rather interesting in themselves given our long term ability to point - click - purchase from the Amazon's of the world) does not necessarily facilitate success. Lots of time wasted by both existing (repeat, in my case) and potential clients. Frankly, I think OPO is being incredibly disrespectful of the paying customer by allowing this to occur. Hope they get it fixed and have both really great success and a good reputation for customer service.

    With all this pre order silliness, I may have to go with the LG g2 now as a plan b.

    This is why OnePlus told you to have everything ready so when the launch happened, you wouldn't have to worry. It would automatically order for you.

    I had everything ready a week before, but when I hit the button, everything blanked. I tried a couple more times, then just waited. After about an hour, it took, and gave me a 4-6 week wait. A couple hours later I got the email confirmation. It's still not showing up in the store, but they said give it 24 hours.

    Sorry you were not able to get it done. They announced on they're Facebook page they will be announcing a second pre-order in the near future because of all the issues they had today.

    The "ONE" is worth waiting for IMO. I've had mine for about 8 weeks and it is awesome!

    Good Luck to you and all the others here!! :cool:

    They shouldn't have closed the forum. I was just going to watch on the forum but it was closed. So i wanted tot know why, loaded preorder 50 times, and I guess lots of people did that and all went down. Idiots
