    Just curious as why people are selling invites rather than giving it to someone free of cost... I guess thats the overall funda about one plus one... Purchase when you get an invite... I however do like the concept of asking the question why u need it which actually makes sense. Hats off to guys who r giving it for free and shame on u guys who r selling it.

    Scarcity has a price, and blackmarters will make use of that! Why else would the same Oneplusone phone be available on ebay for 25-30k, and people end up buying it rather than waiting? I've been hunting for an invite, and if not for the ethics not to buy an invite, I'd have been tempted too. After al, 500 bucks or so isn't too costly in today's world :p

    That's the whole idea Adarsh! Any time that scarcity is created, there will be blackmarketing. We had a recent cyclone Hudhud in Vizag in October, and Milk price shot up to Rs 100 per liter, and water to 50 per liter for 2-3 days! It's all about scarcity, and it is that scarcity that creates a percieved hype about the product too.

    Its very easy to recognize a seller.

    1. A says.. Contact B (email so-so@gmail.com), he has an invite. Actually A and B are the same people

    2. Post just says if you need a invite, contact me via sos-so@gmail.com or call me

    One of the Seller who told me (just cut copy pasting)

    "No..will not share for free..either pay the price or let it go waste. No charity!"

    Most crazy thing is that he got it for free !!!

    For me, i dont really mind paying for an invite, my phones is 4 years old and i need a change as its starting to fail a lot (got broken... now is kinda fixed somehow, but has a lot of problems with mic and touch screen). 1+ is the best phone ever, that is clear, so ill try to get one. But even if i end up paying for the invite, i will give my invites for free, because its my believe that good and costless things should be shared for free :)

    Just don't buy invites from people who are selling. If anyone asks for money then just take a screen shot and upload in the same thread and tag the mods. Mods will take care of them.
