The invite system is frustrating, but ultimately a good thing!

    I too am slightly peeved and a little impatient with the invite system, but over all it is a GOOD thing. Remember how horribly fast the Nexus devices sold out and how they would then be sold at double value on ebay? The Invite system should fix this problem. We need to trust 1+1 to push out invites in a quick and orderly method. Don't worry everyone!

    Yes, but it is difficult to hold on to for longer periods of time:)

    Yes there's a method to the madness that the invite system has created. The key to survive it is patience.

    I'm just hoping that people won't be stupid enough to buy something when there is no way of verifying whether it is real or fake. You could be right though. I still maintain that the invite system is a notch above the insanity that first come first serve brings about.

    except of course until you realize they made it even easier as people will just sell their invites on eBay.

    I've been through a few invite sales before and they are just a pre-order. The phone looks to go on sale Openly on 5/28. the invites will be for people that will hype the phone even more (US, Tech reviewers, and the few that we send the invites to). This will also give OnePlus a test run of their shipping process. The invites are a good thing and most of US the forum members will be able to grab the phone first and help OnePlus with their process.

    I think while the invite system is basically a pre-order system for bloggers, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, definitely on their side of this, since the one plus one is one of the most hyped phones of the year.
    But don't think that if you hype it up in the forums, you're more likely to get an invite

    that's not a solution can't tell thousands of people to band together and not buy. Especially when these people have no clue when they'll be able to buy

    I know is not a solution. But someone dont buy something if someone don sell it.
    That is what oneplus is trying to did.
