Last Chance to buy OPO. Help!

    This might be my last chance to get the OnePlus One.

    I live in Pakistan and have a friend in the U.S. who will be coming here in June. The customs department in Pakistan charges a ridiculous amount of tax on phones or any kind of electronic items. 100% tax in fact. So, if I order the phone and get it shipped to me directly through some mail forwarding system, it will end up costing me about $750 instead of $350 for the 64gb.

    So, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out with an invite. If they want to get paid for it, I'm fine with that as long as it is reasonable (i.e. up to $20).

    This is really not just some sob story to get attention or an invite. I can prove whatever I have said and I was willing to wait like everyone else because the friend was coming at the end of July, but his plan changed. Hence, the desperation...

    If no one is willing to help, then I guess this might be it for my dreams of getting the OPO.

    I am really not begging. It's fine either way. Just thought I'd put this out there and see if there are some good samaritans around willing to help.

    Really desperate now. The friend can delay his flight by a few days at best. Someone please help!

    If no one helps by tomorrow, farewell to this forum and to OPO...

    Yeah, looks like it. I tried entering the contests to no avail. They're getting their invites next week so doesn't matter to me anyway..
    Shit out of luck here.

    Well as it looks now this phone might be dead before they can sell it so you might even be a lucky one.

    Haha. yeah, if they keep going like this. they're dead...
    general availability seems to have been pushed back to Q3, which might mean late August (definitely not july by the state of things.)

    Q3 can even mean it's late september when one can pre-order ...they didn't say when those pre-orders are delivered so that can be even years from now if they see it fit but at least a month more from your pre-order date would be expected.

    their handling of the whole launch has been extremely shoddy. No information. Lack of proper information. Withholding information. They have committed every sin needed to drown a good phone into oblivion!

    If they keep going like this they're not...should have anticipated demand and plotted accordingly. They should stop producing in China for a while and focus on international release.
    These forums are crap. Barring a few genuinely nice people, no one is willing to help a person in need...
    Well, I'll spend my last day here spamming everything in sight! :D

    I'd help you, but i don't have one :( I'm about to say goodbye as well soon, but maybe think about getting an Oppo Find 7a? You can put CM11 on it, so it would be nearly the same as the OPO?

    Costs way too much and not nearly as good, spec wise, compared to OPO. I love OPO, but I'm starting to hate this company.

    Sigh, looks like everyone who got an invite is either gone or they gave them away to friends and family. This sucks!!
