OnePlus One hands-on wm_34

It looks like OnePlus was so fast to ship Smash the Past winners their phones that they didn’t have time to get the rest of the package together. An anonymous tipster shared with us an email explaining that his OnePlus One won’t come with the SIM ejection tool, as well as a USB cable or charging adapter.

They’re not being stingy for the sake of it, thankfully. Here’s their official explanation to one of the winners:

Those boxes were not ready when we had to ship the devices and as we didn’t want to make you wait, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

The caveat here is that the device uses standard microUSB, so you should be able to charge it with any available USB cable and/or power adapter that you have. And the SIM ejection tool is typically just a very thin piece of metal that is used to pop the SIM tray out, so you can find a bobby pin to take care of that if you need to.

It’s annoying that these folks have to deal with this, but it shouldn’t be long until it’s all cleared up. OnePlus says the materials should be ready for shipping by the end of the month, so you can either put together your own home remedy for getting up and running with your device or wait to receive said package from OnePlus themselves. We imagine this won’t be an issue whenever the full launch begins later this month / early next month.

[Thanks anon!]
