    This c&p tutorial is posted on Reddit two days ago by subtletiger. Now there is no excuse for not sharing the invite if you are not going to use it. Thanks

    [TUTORIAL] How to share your OPT invite (even if it's not shareable)
    Submitted 2 days ago by subtletiger
    Tested and this works - just follow these steps.
    Have a OnePlus account? Go to step 1.
    Don't have a OnePlus account? Go to step 2 and skip step 6.
    1) If you already have an account, go ahead and login before claiming your invite and change your email address to some other address. Hint: if you use gmail you can use + aliases. E.g. if you have one@gmail.com, you can use one+two@gmail.com.
    2) Create a new account using the email address attached to your OPT invite.
    3) Claim the OPT invite.
    4) Change the email address on the new account with the invite to the recipient's email address.
    5) Tell the recipient to claim their account (and invite) by using the 'Forgot your password' feature.
    6) [ONLY IF YOU DID STEP 1] Go and log back into your original account and change the email address back to your normal address.
    All done!

    Isn't this kinda cheatsy since those invites aren't made for sharing?

    seems a bit of a waste to let them expire :\ with so many people wanting the device and limited to wait. I had the luck of someone do something similar with my invite :D

    Isn't it when someone doesn't use the invite they give the invite to another random person?

    yes, but if you can give it to someone you know and not let the invite go to waste is better than just waiting 48h for it to expire. If the invite gets claimed and used, another is rolling out too

    Seems like a smart move, I kinda like hacky stuff like this. I only wouldn't perform it myself since OP probably doesn't like this at all.

    What is the use of all this Invite thing when most of people are cheating on this system and rest of opting for Mobiles from others companies.

    Not anymore than what I'm doing. I'm just putting the OPT on eBay at cost. On the plus side, it'll save someone in the States a lot of time.

    Let's hope there are people who do go through all this to share their invite :)
