    Message to Canadian (preferably Albertan) OnePlus One owners

    The cost of the one plus one (64 GB)shoots to $416 if u live in Canada, though if u convert it's US price to $CDN it shud only be $380, further more shipping shoots to $65 vs. $16 for its US cost, making it $480 in the end,$100 more than what you get in the US

    Now that seems to be true of all people who live in Ontario ( which is all I could find on this forum) who bought or were thinking to buy the phone, I don't know what the deal is in other regions of the country. Could anyone outside of Ontario who have recieved an invite or have purchased the phone fill me in, preferably someone from Alberta.

    It's a potential deal breaker for me for two reasons, it means OP has been somewhat dishonest about its warehouses in its launch countries ( which includes Canada) which were put up there to reduce costs, and the more important reason is that if the OnePlus One goes to $480 I might be willing to spend a little more of my money for a more established phone.

    They were never dishonest about warehouse locations.

    We knew Canadians will be ordering via US warehouse from the moment Canada was announced as a launch country.

    My bad, I heard from others on this site that they had warehouses in the launch countries.

    But I wanted to put it out there to see if it applied universally for everywhere in Canada or just Ontario ( which is all I could find), Ontario for example I've seen people say the cost goes to $450 and some $480, and Quebec apparently $440, I'm interested what the cost is for where I live in Canada which is Alberta, if you know please tell me.

    Welp, if you searched the forum there are people from BC to NFL who have purchased the phone or seen the total costs and posted threads.

    Alberta I would have expected to be a bit cheaper since it has a no PST. Also, it's a 1-2 day drive from MT depending on where you are in the province. You could just have it held there.

    Then you need to cough up the money or move on from the phone. Only other thing you can do is create a complaint and see if that fixes anything but probably not.
