    One month is too long I only have a micro sim in my hand because I sold my one plus one because of that freaking virtual reality video and now I have to pay my cellular carrier minimum charges.....I don't think I can last that long!

    I agree. The invite may have been needed for the first phone. But 3,000,000 plus people want it (granted a lot may be fake emails) but still there is a demand for it. They know there is a demand for it cause they promised more invites than the last phone. But with this phone they should have scrapped the invite system. They should have learned from the previous phone. What i am also trying to point out is this invite system will keep them a small company. I can't tell my parents "hey upgrade your phones to the one plus two, but you have to register your email, wait to be invited, then buy it quick cause you only have 24 hours." My colleagues also told me that its too much work to try to get this phone. We are lazy and we don't want to do all of this to get a phone. If you want an invite you have to be active on this forum, you have to promote through twitter and facebook, you have to have others use your link to register to move you up, you have to suck up to the admins saying "i understand you failed testing and you found a problem the day after release but i still love you and i will wait." That is a lot of work for an invite. Why? Other phones are easier to buy. I don't have to suck up to anyone to buy them, i just buy them.

    its not a small player its VERY VERY SLOW player....and its worth dumping this phone by informing others don't worry when I requested or asking for invitation OP team suggest to bump I am definitely spread word of mouth to dump this phone as these people worth a waste nothing just they are thinking there is huge marketing in reality this phone sucks with all issues...they deserve the publicity and they should accept the reality people are simply UNHAPPY....its worth spreading bad about this phone.

    Yes. Completely agree with all the points you have mentioned except that you do all these things that you mentioned to get an invite because it helps OnePlus keep the cost of the phone low as they don't spend money on marketing like other phone manufacturers do. I think its a small price you pay for getting the phone for half the price of flagships from other manufacturers.
    The price is the most enticing part of OnePlus products. Those who have too much money to spend can very well get other phones.

    For a startup, you guys have close to 4 million users waiting to get their hands on this phone.

    It certainly is appreciated.

    Ignore the negative comments but do learn lessons from them.

    Use the positive comments and build a strong base.

    I shall wait u til I get an invite.

    BTW - thanks for the heads up on the issues. I'm sure you guys will do a good job to resolve it asap.

    OMG....this means it is going to be a much slower rollout of invites...but this is ridiculous...quite a few will opt out for another phone
