    @Carl i agree with you with most of things you said.

    I always told you that you have to do better in communication...

    I think that you will grow up as a company and will do even better!

    I hope to be satisfied with the 1+1 because in the future i'd like to buy even a 1+2!

    Never settle!


    ...hope to get soon an invite for the 64GB SB :)

    Chapter 3: On Being Misunderstood
    together with Chapters 1 and 2 ( which i hadn´t read before ) gives me a good explanation of how and why you are doing things the way you did and do it today.
    Thanks for these clear messages @Carl .
    a must read for all forum members.

    Thanks a lot for this post! It really helps people understand why the invite system is here and why it's so hard to get the phone.

    The way you guys over at One+ communicate back to the community is outstanding! I really do hope that once getting closer to the big guys (Apple, Samsung...) this great service will still be here.

    I apologize for being "rude" but I just can't wait for this phone, I will try though!

    Thanks @Carl and I wish you guys the best with this great company!

    With this, you have not only let people know that you are aware of the problems and the critics but also that you want to fix them... In such a competitive market you seem to know exactly what to do. I honestly hope you succeed! Great job!

    Yeah you're all just a bunch of philanthropists slavishly working for the greater good of mankind. How can we criticize that? But really what is going on is revealed in this other statement of yours.

    You didn't quite believe in yourselves as much as you're asking us to believe in you. Now you are believers in what you have, and it remains to be seen if you are able to attract and hold enough converts to your product/cause.

    Now that was a great update from someone who knows. My only gripe is someone at OP had to know that if you were going to offer a great top of the line phone at a great price you had to figure there would have been great interest in the device. Well either way I am not one who is rushed to get a device. However if/when I get an invite I will purchase the OPO!!!

    Very solid post. I like how directly you answered many of the crazy but repeated questions around here.

    Also, glad you're aware of the forum problems!

    Not sure why the OP chose Mainland China to pre-sell, even taking great demand there.
