    well i finally got an invite.. but i read email after around 2 hrs the invite was expired.. didn't know we have t claim the invite within 24 hrs of getting invite. This to me is little stupid of one plus as people might be travelling and stuff, and might not have been able to catch up with the latest email instantly. Also keep waiting for months n only 24 hrs to claim the invite is not rational.. what do you think?
    i've decided not to hunt for invite any more and rather look somewhere else.. with better customer service overall, just in-case something is wrong with the device.

    Update: Just received an invitation from User: Smile. Thanks a bunch, just bought 64GB version as-well!
    Rather than letting the shareable invites to expire i think best to share.. do share to someone particularly new members as-well. Why not help someone willing to buy. i don't think asking for invite is begging when someone is willing to put their money on the product they desire!

    Thanks to all the participants with all the variety of opinions here!

    There are different kinds of invites, some last only 24h, some last 7 days. Sucks that it expired but you will get another one at some point. But if you want to give up, thats your choice.

    I was really lucky with my invite and I've received it just a little before giving definitely up for the Nexus 5. Don't give up. Wait for pre-orders (less than 24 hrs) and pre-order it.

    That is a great idea! If only Marconi had given up then we wouldn't even have to worry about this whole wireless thing:)

    Don't give up. It's all about...Patience & Alertness

    You seem to have a bit of patience, now be a bit more alert. Some of the folks that are here sharing are in different time zones, different countries for that matter. So so have to be watching for your invite notice here in the forums and your email from OnePlus at your email address you used to set-up this account.

    I had a few odd things happen when I finally got my invite too, but after reviewing everything, I found that it was my fault.

    Plus, you might be smart to do your preorder now and be prepared to do the non-invite purchase in 1hr. and 31 mins from now!!! Click here for PreOrders

    FYI, OnePlus is doing it this way because their not a huge company like all the other manufacturers. they don't have all their money spent on marketing. And by doing INVITE ONLY, they can control they flow of orders and supply.

    And you have to admit, it does create a great buzz!

    Tip: Insure that you add you billing and shipping address to your OnePlus account. Insure that it's the same address for your PayPal billing address.

    I totally know what you are going through, I too am in the same boat. I have had two invites, but due to a bug I couldn’t accept them. I pretty much have given up mentally however, I am physically going thru the steps of a preorder. Just hang in there, I have been doing this for over a month now still have a temp phone that is totally out of date. The more difficult it is to get an OPO the more I want it…

    It happened the same thing to me. But after 1 month I got another invitation.

    Wright now I have 2 invites to give away. If you want, send me your e-mail.

    They will expire in 4 days.

    I'm loving mine!
