    Man this guy speaks for the majority here. Again I was between the HTC M8 and the XPERIA Z2. My bday is coming up on the 12th. With this system looks like it will be hard to get one. Plus I'm not even in one of the countries that will release it. Come on guys .....

    Do you have any ideas behind this invite system which is related to the way gmail was initially announced?
    I remember at the beginning you cant create a gmail account by yourself. You needed to have a friend to invite you. I guess google were trying to test the response while developing the system to make it better. At later stage they allowed everyone to create their account by themselves. Are you Oneplus doing the same thing?

    After all the hype I did feel let down...I just assume I won't be getting one until a month later....but if someone wants to become friends I'm down

    They've already said on reddit http://www.reddit.com/user/devildv that "@runout, it's not about the 'Gmail effect', it's about controlling stock and finding less frustrating solutions."

    Excellent question. LOL, this makes no sense to me. Hope the build quality and up to snuff.

    Got it. Smth 'official'. But up to now it seems like creating more frustrating among most of us than having a good solution.

    See @Carl 's post # 608 in this very thread which suggests that invites are the only way for the near future

    I would suggest manufacturing at least 5000 phones, should sell most of them?

    oh wow, i didn't know that....that shines a different light on the situation. I guess we just have to wait until the unveiling to find out how the system will work in detail....

    In post 814 he says
    so it appears they are expecting invites to be the sole means for at least a few months after availability and maybe hardish to come by. Of course we won't know when it will be available or other details until the 23rd but if it isn't available for a few weeks it may be awhile until availability opens up.

    I don't have many friends who are interested in the OnePlus. I would like to state that if I do get a invite, I would turn to the forums to send out my invites. Hopefully, several people will do this so the forum members aren't left waiting

    hmmm.....got to be honest that's kind of not what i wanted to hear but i guess it's understandable because of the initial stock that they will have. Although me personally i would of been fine with just a regular pre-order system oneplus is doing great so far involving the community they don't have to re-invent the wheel. Just have to wait for the unveiling to find out the parameters of the roll outs, things like finding out who qualifies for an invite other than what the phone looks like is at the top of my list for things i want to know about this phone

    I really need to get the invite. Been waiting for this phone so I can dump VZW and jump onto tmobile. I plan to order 5 of these. One for each member of the family.

    This sounds like a very fair system to me, letting your most enthusiastic and loyal customers buy the phone first.
