    I was in the same boat.... had a crappy old phone that I needed to replace. I really really wanted a One but it seemed futile, so I gave up and upgraded to something else.

    I think a part of the bumping up is coming from invites expiring as a lot of very early supporters left the building, tired of waiting. I'm not sure this kind of jump in #members will go on for very long.

    So that adds to slowness? I was already at 3K/week and you're saying that is unusually fast?

    Remind me, OPO was started to make money or make frustrations? :eek:

    Good luck to you. The smaller member number you are, the faster you will get an invite.

    It's simply a matter of perspective. I'm competing for title of the last to get an invite. So far I have quiet a lead.

    Have you contacted OP yet? If not, why? You are fully eligible to get an invite.

    i started coming on the these forums since the 23rd april. Gave up on the OPO three weeks ago when i received my s5, and no regrets so far. I had an iphone 4 so I was super desperate for a new phone. But it might be worth the wait if you want a great phone for cheap :D

    I mean jumps of #members being distributed invites can be attributed by old members having left a long time ago.

    Also, there is some discrepancy in the #members receiving invites being posted on the forum, it might be due to regional stocks not being distributed evenly across the world

    As for the slowness, man, for the time you've been here, you should know better :D! One Plus already stated they had a daily production capacity of 30 000 units a day and its pretty obvious that the Chinese market is their primary distribution market (that's why we got Chinese "scalpers" selling it online with a premium).

    Us international would-be customers are pretty much left to do the bulk of the marketing (form what i gather, almost nobody heard of OnePlus in China until international reviewers began talking about it) and get a fraction of the production capacity for a long time.

    I'd "like" to have the "One", but lately i've been more open about getting the upcoming Moto X+1 or HTC One E8. Whoever come up first will get my money at this point :).

    I was so stupid... I know about this phone since may. I thought this invitation system was a funny thing at the beginning but of course it was not going to last long...

    I didn't join the forum, just watched... now it seems the only way of buying this phone is by invitation....

    why they didn't tell on the front page to join the forum to get an invite! :-(

    at 24,961 it should be just under 3 weeks for you if they stay on the current schedule. They're at around 7k and handing out approximately 1k per day

    Seriously, you will survive... Even if you never see the one plus one. There is always the one plus two.

    I've sent an email every ten days for a month. Being ignored is an odd feeling.
