    Not too soon I expect as OP currently are having some backlog on existing orders. Once this is worked out, they can start giving out new invites.

    [Qwould like an invite as is my bday next week
    UOTE="David S., post: 3235811, member: 178"]Aside from the typhoon that’s raging outside of our office as I type this, Week 32 was quite exciting for all of us at OnePlus. We kicked things off with the Bamboo StyleSwap Cover announcement and rolled out the initial wave of shareable invites. The new Cover generated a lot of interest, and we are pumped for you guys to get them in the coming months.

    As we rolled out more shareable invites, we began seeing the spirit of sharing spread within the community. A big thanks to those who chose to give back the shareable invites to fans within the forums and not sell them on a third-party site.

    To celebrate the Bamboo StyleSwap Covers release, we hosted the Blizzard of Invites, which consisted of giving away 5,000 invites and 10 free Bamboo SwapStyle Covers when they become available. Keep an eye on your inboxes; the winners will be getting their invites today! Additionally, we gave away 100 “Never Settle” t-shirts in our giveaway yesterday. If you missed yesterday’s event, be sure to look out for more giveaways in the future!

    Production and Software

    Production continues to be on-track, and as a result, we’ve been able to give away a lot of invites.

    The next OTA is (almost) ready, solves most of the known bugs and it is currently under testing before we can release it.

    Logistics and Customer Support

    Last week we faced some shipping constrains due to the rapid growth of our logistic operations. Since then we have expanded our operations both in Europe and in North America, so now we are able to process and ship more orders than ever.

    Unfortunately we are still struggling to offer a timely response to all the questions and tickets we receive through our Customers Support page. The whole global team is trying to help out and clean the current backlog while at the same time we are hiring more and more staff for the CS team.

    Going forward, we’ll be adding more ROMs to an already growing list in the Development section of our forums. So far we have Paranoid Android, SlimRom, and PAC ROM in addition to AOSP and CyanogenMod. If there are other ROMs you guys are interested in, let us know in the poll.

    Lastly, tomorrow we'll be going to Hong Kong for our very first OnePlus Fan Gathering. We are extremely excited and we hope this is the first of many Fan Gatherings to come in the future.[/QUOTE]

    Still no number, still no dates, still no confirmation of anything as 'In the Know' said.

    This is one of the most difficult wait periods I have had in years. Been waiting on this phone's release forever and since that time I have had to wait another forever.......still no invite.

    Waiting impatiently.....................

    I appreciate the ROM support. I think that's one of the things that will set this phone apart from the others

    Really? To be honest - I find it really irritating to see people who signed up weeks after me randomly jumping the line AND seeing all the people begging for phones and people on power trips doing scam and real invite threads. I guess One Plus really did want it to be this chaotic - I had kind of assumed that this was unplanned. That actually kind of is the first thing that was announced that has downgraded OnePlus in my view. I understand wanting a marketing buzz but I guess this does explain why your company has not come out and said that expired invites go to the next in line - you actually do want begging in the forums and people at the end of the line who want phones to go crazy in the forums AND you obviously don't care about people who are patiently waiting their turn.
