    Oh well... Carrying around my S2 for 2.5 years now...
    That invitation system is their own unique approach whereas other companies invest millions in marketing campaigns. A pre-order system with a nice down-payment (to scare users of dropping out of the purchase) might have been my personal favourite. Now that many are upset about the issues Oneplus hasn't taken into consideration (LTE, size, MicroSD, battery), they just might say: Screw it. If they don't want my money, I might just give it to someone else.
    The most horrid thing would be to give out the first invitations to the active members... In my opinion 90% of the comments in this forum are useless copies of comments made before by other users (including my own). Useless in terms of "helping the cause - improving 1+". The only thing you get in doing so is "Can I get an invitation now, please" in the thousands...

    If after the Smash contest info is announced tomorrow, and they don't release more info on the invite system, then I think its going to start to lose some of its momentum that the hype has generated.

    At the moment, there are just under 20k forum members. That number has gone up from about 5k from when I joined a week or so ago (although I'd been lurking reading the forum for months). You'd think that 20k phones isn't a lot to manufacture to be able to give an invite to each person? or at least to a big majority. They need to be open and honest with how many of these invites there are and what their production rates are like, so people know if they are in for a massive wait or if its going to be reasonable for them to hang on?

    No. No you have not.

    What you do have is a need for attention.

    That is a pretty smart move for the OPO, I think that you should this user friendly system, like this the clients will not be frustrated from the waiting of the pre-orders.

    all these useless posts and threads, all these new members who itching to buy, the lack of communication, the presece of many buyers that are not tech enthusiast (even if it is normal), the unwise smash contest, the lies, make me sad and perplexed.
    I'm starting to think that opo is just another advertising product.
    What i see is that opo team behaviour is as flasghip behaviour.

    I'm french, so sorry for my poor English.
    I didn't know about the Oneplus One a few weeks ago, but I'm very interested. But I didn't understand very well the system of invitation. How did we subscribe ? I know nobody that could send me a invitation so how can I get one ?

    Bye from Paris !
