    You probably lost it when updating? Maybe it needs reinstalled like GAPPS..?

    I to had to reinstall the GAPPS along with the new firmware update before the update would install. I believe the reason is because they updated some of the sys. apps this time around.

    Listed, but without the bold "Veteran" next to my name. Do you need more info?

    The bold veteran next to the names means that they were present during the first surge of the OPO and were contributors to the forum or thread during that time. It doesn't pertain to their military status.

    I too have been contemplating the jump. I hear the Army is hiring big for Warrant Officers at the moment but my wife said she is spoiled by the Air Force lifestyle and doesn't think she'd adjust too easily lol. I heard you only need an associates to go warrant, is that true? Guess I could Google it but this makes for good thread conversation. I'll more than likely stay AF, looking into the MSC program at the moment but I'm thinking more of Space operations or cyber security.

    Picked up my phone yesterday from the post office and last night I got my official invite from Oneplus. Haha! I want to share it, but its the one that's tied to my email. If there's a way to change that let me know. Hopefully my shareable invites will arrive soon.

    It is pretty sweet in the hand. I bought a case and StyleSwap cover, but the sandstone cover feels so nice! I'm tempted to just use the phone as is. Dumb me is saying do it, looks awesome. Smart me is saying protect it. :( can't make up my mind. I still haven't gotten the chance to dig into the OS.

    Good Morning all.

    Is the rush over? It's been pretty quiet all over the forums.

    I'm thinking that people are discouraged, but that's just my opinion.

    I'll edit this statement to include that I also feel that North America isn't their primary focus group: It's India and China this time.

    Yeah you only need an associates so if you have your CCAF you're good to go.. I don't see how the lifestyle would be much different for your wife.. The army offers comparable programs and if you've seen any of the new housing it's in some cases much nicer than our crap shoot privatized cracker jack box housing. If anything I think that the lifestyle would be different for you.. I wouldn't think its that bad though I work in a joint services component and everyone seems fine.

    I also received another invite tied to only my email...

    On a happier note, My son in SoCal is LOVING my One Plus 1 I sent down to him after I got my One Plus Two. He said it kicks serious ... and going from a Samsung to this is such an upgrade. Yay for Dad points, lol... He's 20 and in college.

    I agree but we both come from military families and she experienced more of the Army side than I did. I've deployed, worked, and lived with the green guys. I loved the "just get it done" mentality of the group I was attached to but seeing the way they treated their own was what steered me away. Now we see that in the Air Force as well, just not on the same level as them. I love the corporate feel of the AF and long term, I think it would be more beneficial to stay in the same service. I also agree about the housing situation as our base contracted out around 2013 and have heard nothing but complaints about the new build-a-box houses they are throwing up. Luckily my wife and I still stay in the older homes but our time to move is coming soon. I'm really considering the jump, I know I can do a lot more and get paid for it. I could've supervised my supervisor when I first came in lol. I hear cool stuff about being Warrant/SME's but we'll see haha. Which side are you leaning towards?

    Hi people! :)

    I've been thinking about selling my Oneplus One lately, especially since I got my OP2.
