    It's actually quite simple . Sheeps ( fanboys ) need to be fed ( invites ) but the master is actually feeding sheeps empty promises and more hype .

    Geez haven't you learnt your lesson or at least learnt it from someone else's mistakes ?

    You still put your faith in these clowns ?

    It's one thing to have this god awful invite system, but when you start teasing your customers with the invites they've been slaving away for only for them to not even be able to purchase the phone when they finally get one - that is a huge slap in the face to the people who have been supporting your company, spreading the word, following you on all of your social media and making YOU money. Seriously, I'm glad I gave away my invites and I won't be buying a OP phone until OP gets their shit together.

    Either way, having an invite is does not give you "100% chance of buying" ... which is exactly what has happened in your case.

    The point is, they shouldn't even give invites out until there is sufficient inventory to provide the people who have been waiting and slaving away for an invite with the damn device they've been waiting for. What kind of business model is this?

    It's called the " let me phark with their heads " model

    You're preaching to the choir. I've been saying this since mid-summer, it's been nearly four months since this post and there are still fewer than 50,000 devices out there, possibly even fewer than 10,000 but there's no way they'd ever release numbers (of course).

    I think if people wanted to pay more for a phone, they would find alternatives to the OPT. Let's face it...the main selling point of the OnePlus is to get premium features at a fraction of the cost.

    If someone wanted to spend $500 USD for a phone...it probably wouldn't be the OPT. Agree?

    Sorry to hear...I would check back before the invite expires and open a support ticket as well.

    I agree this is not acceptable. But it doesn't change my view because I already have one. I hope they do something about this and I hope they don't punish people trying to claim invites for an out of stock device.

    Well this is disappointing. I've been putting off buying a phone for the last three months because I figured I'd wait on the OPT invite. I get one today and decide to bite the bullet and say screw waiting for the Nexus 5x release. I go to buy the phone just to see that its out of stock....and I only have 22 hours left to buy it.

    Fantastic job OnePlus....talk about over promising and under delivering.

    Well if anything, I guess OnePlus sold me on the Nexus.....

    there is nothing small about oneplus its just oppo they are under them the only reason things are out of stock is because at the warehouse oppo phones have the priority over oneplus those phones make more money for the company

    I feel bad for you guys. As someone who never hated the company, never questioned its iffy support, and as someone who is content with the OPO (so that I'm not involved with the OP2 or these invites at all), I've come to dislike OP in these past 7 months.

    I just waited for multiple hours on support, finished the queue on got in a chat window, said waiting for support to come talk to you, waited for over 15mins, no reply, minimize it for 1-2min, bring it back up and it said the conversation was over. I'm having the same issue as the rest where I got my invite but cannot use it due to out of stock...

    Vote with your wallets if you aren't happy. I don't give my money to a company I'm not happy with. The OPT isn't the be all & end all of phones.
