    After playing that awesome game for 5 minutes, I managed to get the spotlight and go for the store, until...

    [​IMG]
    The 'Shop' button wasn't working, it took me another few minutes to figure out I opened the button in a new tab and it threw me onto the store page. :D

    I clicked on 'Buy' and waited, until...

    [​IMG]

    Great, I don't want objects - I want my One!

    Few minutes later, I was thrown here:

    I was back into the queue with the other flappies. After playing the game for 50 minutes, I got the chance and bought the phone straight on without any problems.

    When I got to paypal, it said my order was €0 (which I then had to correct by hand). Problem is: the amount to fill in was in dollars, when my order was in euros, so I had to reverse the paypal conversion to get to the right number...
    Is this just me, or does everyone fill in the amount themselves?

    How do you check if your order went through? I can't find any "orders" page in my profile page (neither on the forum and the main account page).

    Frustrated. Website doesn't function. Wait 20 minutes for the UNA game to complete. Then it made me create a login and I'm stuck in a loop where nothing gets added to the cart and it won't save the address to my address book. So even if I try to check out the 1 in 20 times when the shopping cart works it asks for address again.

    On a technical point, the disappearing shopping cart makes me think that there is a loss of state between webservers so that the shopping cart disappears. Come on guys.... You created this by your marketing strategy of invite hell. Can someone who works for the company help me out here?

    I am not happy i was logged in and it says i was lucky, i clicked buy, and it says buy some accessories and i clicked and before i knew, the site crashed. Then i waited for an hour countdown and after the counter went to zero it says wait another 56 minutes :-( Then i logged in with another browser as well and it says "out of stock." I am seriously annoyed. I wasted two hours for nothing If i dont get it asap, i get something else. This buying system is not good. Its not just waiting for two hours its also the anticipation beforehand and making sure you are on time and all that. Plus i dont play childish games like that. I am sick of it and seriously disappointed. What does level cupcake mean anyways? why cant it be straight forward? Why play games and get a bloody cupcake award? This is for babys not adults. What happens now, wait for more months before its in stock again? This really sucks to put it mildly. Just looked, It says wait another 43 minutes.......but its past 9pm and its out of stock.

    I've got a problem here. I went through the order the first time, figured I had to put in the amount myself and then processed the payment through paypal. Then it requested me to make the payment, and sent me through paypal with the actual prices and items of my order. Right now, I have two payments (I only wanted one), and somehow two different orders. How do I cancel one of them so I don't pay double/get two phones :-O

    I am quite sad, I'd wanted one for ages, made it to the checkout, got it to accept an address and then it wouldn't accept the delivery option (Standard or Express) at all. Quite, quite sad now.

    Congrats, you will love the new phone.

    I have been using it fairly moderately.

    Unplug at 0615.
    Music from 0657-0730
    Texting throughout the day
    Music from 1600-1645
    Bed time approx 2330

    BATTERY PERCENTAGE = 68% (I replugged to charger before bed just in case)

    Amazing battery life. My GS3 w/ Greenify died by the end of the day.

    Sounds great. It's in line with what a friend of mine told me he got with his OnePlus One.
