    I like the sound of the invite system, but I wish there was a little more info on how it was going to be implemented.

    Exciting time no mater what, so bring the love!

    @Carl if you have no friends but you want to buy one how will you go about it. Especially if you are willing to part with your money straight away?

    This does seem a bit of an unusual way of going about things as someone who really wants to buy one may not be able to actually buy one, who is to say that that person would be guaranteed an invitation and when, they may have contributed to all the decisions on the forum but have no way of buying the phone, this may put some people off

    Ok this is not cool. Oneplus has 5k people here who are the fans of the company. They will pick a few who they like (I know it won't be me, I was too critical with oneplus to be picked) and this few will then choose who? Their friends on the forum? Their family / RL friends? What happens when there are 100 chosen and only 10 decide to invite another forumites? In the end it runs towards "if you have been a great fanboy of oneplus from the very beginning on and was always nice, never posting anything bad, you will get the phone, if not then it does not matter you live in the available country or can get it via family, you have to suck it up and wait even longer..."
    I don't see the point here. Imho this is a bad idea, that results in further increasing an artificial hype, but also making your future / likely customers angry. What about all the new members who don't have friends here yet? Sigh, time will tell... I am not happy with this "better than preorder"

    Hello 1+ fans,
    my s3 has broken since the begining of March. Since then i ve been waiting for opo. Now i am stuck with an old nokia til 23 April. It ´s kinda dissapointing to have to wait until u get an invitation.
    But if it´s the only way to get an opo, please don´t hesitate and send me one.
    best regards

    I hope this doesn't lead in some black market style scenario where people are selling these invites to those who are willing to pay more.

    I like it. Gives me extra time to put money aside for it. Just means I won't be selling my nexus 5 right away because I don't want to end up with no phone.

    I must say that is frustrating.

    I have sold my current phone an LG G2 - ready to buy my OnePlus and I'm using a really old phone for now.

    I've commited to OnePlus, as I expected to be able to buy one when I wanted.

    what about randomly selecting current forum users? or make a sign up page for the invites that get randomly selected. seems fairest to me. any objections?

    There's a difference between being negative and being realistic.
