Will there ever be a time that no invites will be required?

    Does any think that there will be a time that just clicking and purchasing will be an option? No invites required? Is the invite process in place due to grow interest or for the company to ramp up production or something else?

    Not unless they get a lot bigger and or a lot more mainstream, I kinda like the system as long as there are enough invites floating around that nobody has to wait too long, at the same time it has its drawbacka

    It's a good start-up marketing strategy, but eventually they system should support itself with enough orders pouring in...

    When the demand for the phone goes down, and/or everyone who wants a phone badly has the phone. But other than that, not sure.

    Hard to imagine. But, one day they will be viewed as obsolete, and we'll all be drooling over the one plus TEN

    When they for starters can guarantee a production capacity of the demand coming in. Also since they haven't nailed down all the bugs I don't see that happening for now. Most people that buy here using the invite system are aware of the small imperfections in the hardware and software when buying but if you'd let anyone in they'd get a lot more heat on themselves.

    /guess

    Will certainly give that a try.. however I have heard that even that time is limited. I have a feeling I will need to take the day off so I can click away at the buy icon as I have heard even this period of time is somewhat limited. Of course.. I will be there.. just like the zillion of my other fellow invite seekers. :eek:

    To be safe, you better to expect it will take about 10-14 days according to last pre-order's experience.

    If your lucky enough to be one of those selected to get the invite on preorder day.. I bet it will be sooner than waiting for an invite.. :)

    Last time they only have 1 hour window originally but extended to 3 hours due to their problems. As I understand this time is 3 hours so you should be OK (as long as you don't start at the last second).:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
