I have another invitation for a OnePlus One. Just the one. Please leave a comment when you claim it so people aren't disappointed.

Also, if anyone knows Binod Bista's friend Hang Rai, tell him to get in touch please, as B.B. has one for him.

I have three invitations to the OnePlus One -- a tremendous phone, though I suggest you read reviews first.

Let me know here if you want one. First three only, though, I'm afraid.

Welcome new members. I just approved a number of new members whose requests suddenly became visible. I just checked yesterday, but it looks like a lot have been pending so I don't know why v

Three invitations to buy a a OnePlus One

I've been using lots of open source stuff, and it should be no surprise my phone uses an open source OS.

I installed Cyanogenmod OS (a modded Android ROM) on my Nexus One in 2010, and have been rooting my phones and using it ever since then.

Meanwhile, I've been using the OnePlus One since July. It's a high-quality GSM (AT&T/T-mobile) phone using Cyanogenmod for its native OS. It's sold by invitation only for now, although they should be taking pre-orders sometime in October. And frankly if you didn't follow the above (or are an iOS user) you won't want it. Also, if you find the review or reviewer below intimidating you won't want it.

However, if you want a higher-end, customizable, phone with an approachable and responsive ROM maker, it's very good. You can get to a lot of settings without rooting, and they half expect you to root. Here's the best review I found:

I have three sharable invitations for the 64 gigabyte version, which sells for $350 plus shipping, although if you're a very heavy user you may want an external battery pack too, as its battery isn't removable. I sold my Note 3 for this better phone and made a profit.

OnePlus is a Chinese company, by the way -- not just manufactured there but actual Chinese ownership.

Obviously these are first come first serve, and there aren't any more. Let me know if you are able to use them, please.

This has been a long time coming, and it's dire. Speeding up those who can pay slows down others, relatively speaking.

Wow, this is one issue bringing left and right to the same page.
