    I purchased an invite from eBay and I bought my OP2. And I am NOT sorry !
    The reason I bought Invite includes my frustration and the time bound I was to purchase this phone . I had a good offer on my old phone and he was not going to wait forever.
    I know that I can be banned to post a thread like this but this is not my real account so I don’t care.
    For the past 1 year , I have given my uncountable hours to this forum. I am close to KitKat level , my reservation list number is below 4600 and I was a loyal costumer of OPO too. Then why don’t I have an Invite ???
    The people who attended popup event are not loyal costumers and are selling invites on various websites , just because they live in the metro cities where the popup event are arranged .
    Its all about the #HYPE for OnePlus , The list of 40 Million users in 10 days .. wow ... that's all bulls#it.
    More than 80 % of the list includes fake email address created by users just to bump up the number in the reservation list .
    Now here’s what I am going to do ... I purchased an invite for a certain amount and when I receive mine I am going to sell it .. fair enough OnePlus ?
    My intensions are not to criticize anyone , nor I am giving my advice to users to do such type of thing , I am just showing my frustration against this INVITE system and I think I have the right to do that ..

    why did you do it in the first place, when you see the invites going rolling out in the coming weeks you'll regret it,

    Selling is not allowed, and against, the forum rules, bhai.

    that's a long way to, you're still at cupcake, but that doesn't decide whether you'll get the invite or not, the level ups are just based on the activity, and even old members who remained inactive in the forum remains at cupcake

    edit : just noticed that you're using a different account, my mistake

    anyway feel sorry for you with the bad experience

    that's something ...
    i agree that Invite system should be more transparent ...
    and i also agree than One Plus should have sent Physical invites to their old and loyal customers first instead of giving away invites to random persons in popup events ...

    Nobody but the seller cares if you buy an invite. You just bought something that costs zero...It's your money...you should be the one to decide how you waster it.

    Past one year ?? seriously ?? If you have another account , you should have posted this thread from that.[​IMG]

    What you decide with your invite is your call.....sell it or whatever...nobody care's and nobodys gonna blame you if you did either.

    Guys look at Meizu MX5, looks like we will not be needed to wait in an dead loop without any updates. At least OP should have sent some updates like when we can expect invites, but looks like they are just kidding with us. Never mind but I will consider options, what is your opinion?

    I think you did nothing wrong. If you sell your invite then also it is fair. If somebody is to be blamed, it is OnePlus for such a non-sense system. I have seen People like you spend their hell lot of time. Is it really worth to invest your time for a phone manufacturing company? or people like you don't have anything good to do and hence spend lot of time on this forum? OnePlus needs people like you and your time to get their phone marketed free of cost. Now it is up to every individual to decide how much time they want to invest just to get a phone.

    There might be many who did this earlier, who are going to do this now, but they might be doing this silently :)

    So, it is as good or bad as buying an unlocked phone from ebay India or eBay US. If it is right or wrong, it is up to you.

    And, OnePlus, you are going to retain the hype by rolling out the invites as slowly as possible. That's good for your business in short run.

    Your original reason for Invite System had a meaning.
    Because, as a new player sitting less on cash, you were not sure whether your inventory will get sold. So, invite system helped you ramp up the inventory gradually based on demand.

    But, now, this reason does not have a point now. Because, you are no more a small player. You have sold million devices and you know the expectations on your new device.

    And, obviously you know your inventory is not going to lie idle. So, this slow rolling of invites is a reason only to retain the hype.

    I am in a point of questioning the invite system..as per the algorithm thingy it states early supporters, people purchased OPO and what not..


    If you look at most of the Posts the maximum people who have just joined the forum are the ones getting the invite..so is the invite algrithim intact?
