    I tottaly agree. All you hear is we got over 2 million in under a week. Only apple has has so many people waiting like this. OK if you had people put their money down like a pre order you could say that. But type in an email anyone could of bumped themselves which we know happened and there's even eBay listings for get to under 2000 on the list. The whole reservation list is a joke I bet you less than half of that number is actually people who are going to buy the op2. I don't hate op I'm just one of those who actually wants one and was at 4000 spot and because there system craahed the first time it dropped me down to 300,000 which even with bumps make no sense as my cousin signed up after me in the 6000s and is only in the 20-30,000s now. So stop playing marketing games and make sure your fans and supporters get phones and not scalpers and cheaters. Rant finished lol

    Yup, in Sweden many would have already decided to choose another brand. Unethical marketing strategy according to our values. I'm sure there are others who would think the same.

    I always questioned why people pay for free invites, but looks like you guys found a "loophole" to transfer that money to a great cause!

    You should have sold a few phones for Unicef then.

    In reality you haven't done anything for the charity. Your just giving fans a chance to give to charity.
    Kind of cheap guys.


    Congrats on invites coming out though.

    I like and applaud the UNICEF auction idea, but I'm damned if I can see how auctioning invites helps discourage scalping :confused:. @rach290992's idea, while interesting, if the donation was optional, may not be worth the bookkeeping effort and the potential headaches of conspiracy theories. It's already too easy for people to question OnePlus's motives. Now, to get the begging ball rolling, when do I get an invite? Pleeeeeze, pretty pleeeeze!? emoticon-0140-rofl.gif
