    As I can imagine some of us found ourselves later to the party than most. I'm just shy
    of 1.6 million. Am I crazy when I say the chances of me getting an invite through the reservations list is crazy? And I'm pretty much banking on winning an invite or being gifted one from another customer. I'm a huge Android fan and love development and really want to get my hands on this device. Any input would be amazing. And I think a thread for us high count guys could be a good place for people to turn that have found one plus later than others. PS. This community has been amazing so far.

    Haha that's what I've come to understand and I don't hate it. I was late and that's on me. I jhst think majority of post are questions about being low on list and what to do about it. Figured this would be a good place for people with the op2 to talk to the other majority. The wanters. Thanks for the response.

    Nobody knows, but you are most likely looking at quite a long wait.

    ebay for the win.
    Buy an invite there, sometimes you can find one for 20-30 USD or much less.
    i think some chinese companies have full time employees that maybe adding emails adresses to get a bump up in the list...

    No. I got an invite a few days ago and let it expire as I have no interest in the OP2, and you cannot share the early invites.

    I've been wondering and doing the same with eBay. I wonder how many people will have to turn to this alternative and where we will see the resale price be set. As I can't see many paying much more for a phone that so perfectly fits its current price point. Hard to justify much higher.

    Don't buy an invite yet!!
    The ones passed out these days are all e-mail restricted. Can only be used with the e-mail it has been send to.
    Sharable invites will start to roll out later in the year

    Yeah as I've seen many have done. Must be tough for some of the posters to read that you let one fade away haha

    It's unfortunate, but nothing we can do.

    Yeah people are selling 20-40 referrals for like 10 dollars or invites going for anywhere between 120-200. But I had saw that someone said all invites are only for certain emails to being with so those people who bug will be losing out on big money. So funny how quickly people think of schemes to make a quick buck.

    Despite all the tiering theories, the Algorithm has been demonstrated To send out invites at random ....( see other threads on the subject) Your chances are as good as anyone elses.

    Hahaha I'm thinking Moto x play if this doesn't work out. Kinda like the drama of it all if that doesn't seem weird. Not like the phone I have now is a dinosaur. Thanks for the reply.

    That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me! Followed you back and if by crazy coincidence I get one before you. I'll be sure to do the same.
