    Guys I am in conversation with oneplus customer care on twitter. They are asking where have they said "There is a Nord with your name on it". My pre-order box is yet to be delivered, can anyone please upload a photo of the same, so i can send it to OnePlus Customer Support?

    Valid Question. I’ll answer it: First Gift box (so called Preorder box) contains a TShirt, few stickers, an Invite card without any code, and ar launch invite card. No way it is worth more than 500. If they are assuring the customers to get gifts worth more than 5000, then it doesn’t make any sense. Also, 499 being non-redeemable towards the purchase of the Oneplus Nord doesn’t make any sense. They are treating our 499 of the first gift box value and nothing more, And not to forget, not giving any reservations of a Oneplus Nord to the preorder buyers. It definitely a pain point.

    Hahaha i guess! I've been asking them since the launch. They replied with the details of pre-order box options and dates with clarity, let's see what response (if any at all) comes

    Hi Guys Please go through the screenshots with the customer service of oneplus and their answer on how the benefits are summing upto 5000. Their reply was epic. They also mentioned that there won't be any separate sale for pre ordered customers they have to buy it normally. They are considering the American Express 2000rs off also under the pre order benefit. I now totally lost the hope that oneplus is going to rectify it's mistake. I have decided not buy the phone anymore. For those who still trust and believe in oneplus as a brand. All the best Guys. @Joel Jacob @Carl @Pete @Akis E @Fleming F.
    Also if anyone with good amount of followers on Twitter or youtube please include all the screenshots and promises from the beginning and let everyone know what was happening. And please write yours views on this tagging the oneplus people to make them know how people feel with their stupid Marketing tactics. All these shows how the oneplus customer service is going to be after purchasing any of their products. And YES PRE-ORDER IS A SCAM.

    Neelesh, I’ll be honest with you, you haven’t asked them the Right Question, correctly. You should just have asked them to prove/explain how the preorder gift box is worth 5000 inr. And just let them answer. That’s what they have been doing on this forum as well, ignoring it. Apna sawaal ekdum sahi tareeke se poochna bhi zaroori hai.

    I’ve finally uploaded one video (In Hindi for now, English one coming up to). So kindly share the link everywhere you can.

    This is their true north... To lie to the Indian customer base.. Cheat them and earn money from it.. Ask us to Preorder and then change the meaning of preorder..

    Everyone has reached out to Oneplus team but this team doesn’t give a f*uck... really...

    Been waiting for this phone for soo long and considered myself soo lucky that I could preorder it but sadly the level of hypocrisy that has been shown by asking us to preorder and then completely ignoring the preorderers is something which will be your downfall..

    “There’s a oneplus with your name on it” they said..

    But seems you have really messed up but the worst thing is not rectifying and resolving the issues while you still had the chance...

    Maybe you guys should consider rebranding to ONEPLUS FRAUD instead because that’s your nord (direction).

    You can have your preorder kit back. FYI, we were in it for the phone and not the goodies.

    True feels like we Indian community members who trusted OnePlus and went ahead for PreOrder on 15th July are cheated by OnePlus. UK consumers got their pre order amount back + they got OnePlus Buds worth 4990 which is in true sense benefit of worth 5000 and we are given benefits of only worth 2790. OnePlus only values their UK consumers and not INDIAN CONSUMERS. Our actual cost of Nord comes to 30500.
    Oneplus should refund back the pre order amount of 499 in the form of Amazon Pay Balance and give the OnePlus Buds in the second gift box option.

    At least you are not paying 450 euros as it is in some coutries which when converted is about 40 000 INR. When searching for the phone in youtube before the 21st perhaps 90% of the videos were in indian creating unnecesary hype about price, specs, AR invites, gifts and whatever. Looking at the forum the majority of the complaints come from India. Maybe it is because of all of those videos that were pushed every day pumping the expectations to a perhaps unreasonable level? Don't get me wrong, I am not taking sides since I am not indian, just trying to make sense of the situation and what led to this mess.
