    Honestly there are just a lot of invites going around right now but at least you tried

    Short lived invites get reissued (possibly to someone else), which grants faster sales than having them stuck for up to a week

    But in india people are screaming for india specific invites.
    Nobody need global invites. Even after seven days effort only manged to giveaway only two of my sharable invites. For the last one I pasted the link of invite as thread title and content still no one claimed it and expired. Looks like even the bots don't need invites now. I wish if I've got my remaining shareable invites as India specific invites. (I bought two OPOs One international and One Indian)

    You don't have to share. And the reward is the low price you paid.

    But it stands to reason, remember the story of the Chinese Lord and the chess board? 1 grain of rice on the first square which was then doubled, so if the first person gets 3 invites that makes 3 people X 3 invites (9) and so on, so bearing in mind it's been months I would say it's obvious there are so many invites going around

    I do not think its yet reached it saturation. As @hazzavg mentioned those who wanted it they already have got it now.. however for a usual joe blog its too much of an effort to get the phone via invite system and they get disillusioned by, hearing the negative publicity about, this invite system.

    Otherwise OPO still seems to be a market contender for what it offers for such a fantastic price :)

    Keep in mind, alot of people are scooping up the invites ,only to try and sell them on ebay. i had one returned to my account because the person claimed it, but never used it. and its not the first time.

    Are you sure the 2 new ones arent just your other ones, returned to your account because of non-usage.

    There's always people writing invite please on Facebook posts from/about oneplus, but they don't seem to read through the comment 2 posts below with an invite link.

    My educated guess is: only stupid impatient people haven't gotten their invite yet. Sorry, if you're not stupid and haven't gotten your invite yet I'm sure it's just bad luck :) no fence

    Actually they go back to your account after the 24 hr time limit once someone claims it. (if they dont use it after claiming it)

    I gave one today and it was used. The problem I'm having with my remaining 2 is that everyone is asking for a India Invite....:mad:. Can't tell you how many conversations have started and ended with "Sorry I only have Global!":(

    I have 3 global (non Indian) invites in my shareable invites but every time I see a thread there seems to be dozens offered within seconds...?

    Nine invites pile a week aint faster then one invite a week during several weeks.
