    My OPO went swimming with me and is now dead (they can't swim). So I will do a preorder, if I haven't secured an invite by then.

    A few days up to a week before the 17th, OP will open a page where you can pre-configure your order, read the specs on accessories, and select one or two of each of the accessories you'd like to order along with your phones (last time you could order one or two phones along with one or two of any of the offered accessories). This pre-configured order will be saved and you can edit it up until the actual ordering starts. At the appointed time you'll be able to process that order, including linking your PayPal info.

    I think you're not supposed to wait until the 17th to set up your order.

    Last time was kind of chaotic so I don't remember how many steps it as but I think it was two or three including PayPal. If their servers crash again and you haven't been able to order within the appointed time, keep trying until they say the window is closed. Last time they planned to have a one-hour order window but because their servers crashed at the outset they opened it up to three hours.

    I don't know if people who weren't in on the October 27 order are aware, but OP is in the middle of a huge F*#^-up with PayPal on the that preorder that they're slowly trying to work out. Basically they've been unable to process payment for a significant number of the orders and their computers kicked out messages Friday and Saturday to affected customers suggesting that it was something the customer had done to mess up the PayPal security checks. Finally they confessed that the problem was on OP's end.

    Last time it was an hour of agony. First it won't sign in and then it won't let me proceed. Hope this time it will be sorted out. But I will give it a go again. And if someone has an invite to spare....he/ she can help me out by sharing it with me...would appreciate it.

    if you are gonna try the next preorder here is something you wanna keep in mind:
    • the server will probably not respond for the first few minuets (overflow)
    • keep the reddit of the opo so you can keep track of what's happening
    • edit your paypal address so it matches your delivery address (so you can avoid payment problems later **NOTE- this will probably be fixed next preorder but you don't want to risk it)
    • keep calm because if you fail, you will have more opportunity to get the phone trough invites! and if you try hard enough you will get one for sure!
    good luck for you guys!

    Oh ok, thanks!
    So if i get it, you chose what model, specs, accesories and what not. Then you wait until you get an invite to order it? Or is there a date where your order goes through, regardless if you have an invite or not?
