    This all happen last year with the first opo. It's not right at all but its a side effect of invites to buy a phone. Personally I'd never pay for an invite

    People that really want one are willing to pay for an invite.... This kind of stuff happens a lot the first months...:)

    Unfortunate side effect of the invite system. Limited supply for an overwhelming demand will always create a gray/black market. Nothing OnePlus can do. Same thing happens to the iPhone when the new one comes out. First round is resold for profit.

    Invitation system makes people waste their valuable time.....than money...we know that time is money and we can't run around with our time for these invites so either company is giving the phones for cheaper but in the process they are making the people spend their time just to run behind this invites and that way people are paying more money for the phone....in reality

    How would the seller be able to guarantee that they will get an invite to sell on the mentioned dates, unless they are high up the food chain within the 1+ company??!?!?!?

    well the sellers dont even know if they can get it by then so its basically pointles and the guy selling the invites is probably the one that got them from the vr launch vid or is a single digits on reservation list

    This is something that we were afraid but finally has happened. Some people that will get 2 phones or more, will get profit of that.... And people that don't wanna to wait some weeks or months will buy it directly despite they had to pay +100$/€ for it....

    Crazy at all :S
