    @Joel Jacob @OnePlus @Pete @Carl - Why has the terms and conditions suddenly changed and when we pre-ordered OnePlus Nord on 15th July 2020 by paying 499/- INR then we were getting a OnePlus Wireless Z (blue) and a Sandstone(blue) case for Nord and now you have changed it to OnePlus Wireless V1. This was not expected from OnePlus and this is really disappointing. I preordered and was so excited to buy the phone definitely because of the other benefits also that I was getting along with it. I also thought that as we are pre-ordering, we will get hassle free buying options and not required to be a part of flash sale where the phone goes out of stock in few seconds but now I guess I have to change my mind and look for other option. Disappointed.

    I still am confused. How is this clearing the doubts? Still unanswered questions:

    1) Will the amount of 499 which people paid for booking preorders, be adjusted at the time of ordering Nord?

    2) Why have you changed the free “ blue Bluetooth headphones Z” to V1, which was supposed to be part of the surprise gift box (also going to be in the box is a Sandstone case.)

    3) When you mention in the Card “Hey, There’s a OnePlus Nord with your name on it”, which comes as a part of the preorder kit, gives the consumer a sense that it means that they will be able to purchase the OnePlus Nord without much hassle and also before Open sale. But things are still foggy.

    4) And what do you mean by “subject to availability “?. When you have sold a certain number of Preorder kits, you must be ready with selling those numbers of pieces. Means i wont get any specific invite code which will ensure that i get my piece without any hassle Plus added benefits (gift box etc).

    5) I’m just wondering that what is the soul purpose of “Preorders”? Isn’t it that Customers are putting their faith in your brand and are so confident that they wait for ages to be the lucky one to buy the “preorder”? Without even knowing much about the whole phone specifications, or even the pricing. They just go out of their way to buy the Preorder so that they can grab their piece and savour!

    6) Also, how is all this worth 5000? As you had mentioned in the Preorder “get gifts worth 5000”.

    Using words like “preorders”, “prebook”, then pop up boxes, its all getting jumbled up and creating more confusions. Guess I’ll make some video on it (if and when i get the clarity). There are many like me.

    Hope all above questions are answered soon. Not as excited as I was then, to buy nord. You did this.

    Why does "Pre-Order" mean different things in EU and India. When EU customer can get invite links why not Indian customers?

    They have now replaced wireless Z by wireless V1 only bcoz of price.

    Wireless Z (MRP) is inr 1999 whereas for Wireless V1(MRP) is INR 3999(currently selling at 2999)

    This will help them to maintain "gifts worth INR 5000" as the Sandstone case will cost anywhere between 700-1500 INR.​


    Probably it would be expensive but that's a 2 year old tech also they could have just added the one plus Buds to make it 5k nothing else I think most would have been happier.

    Exactly.. They should have added buds and removed the Sandstone case as well.

    But it's part of business... No one is going to buy a 2 year old tech. Thus using it as freebies.

    Why not just allow those who pre-ordered on 15th to purchase it a day before - so that they can at least secure and complete their order?

    Are you guys hoping we don't manage to complete our orders to avoid this changed gift box? (Subject to availability was the pre-orders, not the actual orders!!)

    Can we have some common sense already?

    Looks more like a stock clearance to me Lol. Anyways just disappointed so much Hype and it went down to the drain I really think the Nord is worth the price,

    People won't be complaining of they hadn't set this kind of expectations.

    Very well Quoted questions that really need to be attended too.

    I feel just to create the hype they just put their foot in theirs mouths.

    Don't Create Expectations when you cannot fulfill.

    Oh well, yesterday tried contacting chat support. Was a terrible experience. After waiting for 40+ minutes, “Error” and never got through to a chat support agent. As they say #neversettle , I tried again, after waiting another 40 minutes or so, blank!
    Makes me wonder about their after sales service though. Wondering if its even worth buying now.
