This is what I am reading from their website "Get free delivery and returns", also I recall chatting with their customer support as I was complaining that they don't have a place to trial the product, the agent said that I can order it and trial it for 30 days and free return if I don't like it.

if Facebook finds out you used a fake account or even a fake name, they can ban you.

essentially, they can do whatever they want and bend rules, because we do not have any laws that protect us against this kind of practice (or they'll find ways to circumvent it).

this has been done in the past - ie locking you out of your Facebook account until you "prove" to them your identity like submitting your passport photo.

even if you buy your device, you do not own it - they do. they can even lock your device to your account and prevent it from being resold (i'm not saying it has happened, but I am saying it CAN).
only price errors are true deals - such is the philosophy of RFD.

Free return shipping to Oculus, I've done it before on some accessories.

Would also be easier to return
True, but just note they don't take opened returns.

Virtual Reality Headsets (Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, etc.)
Return Period: 30 days
Condition: Unopened

just a heads up for everyone - when you order your headset through the oculus website, Facebook will tie the name used in shipping *permanently* through the Oculus account that you created. So even if you wanted to change your real name after receiving the headset, you can't.

Mentioned in this article, 30 day bans for example, but not permanent.

If they find out or have suspicious (or hell, just for the HECK of it - they don't need a reason), they'll lock you out of your account and request you to submit passport photos as proof of identity (just like they do with Facebook)

I returned the original Quest and they had prepaid shipping labels.

Okay, reading a lot about what facebook can and cant do, I got a turn off on this. Will read more tonight prior to deciding.

256 GB for sure. I don't get why it isn't 128 GB and 256 GB.

I have an Oculus Go and 64 GB is just barely enough for me. With the Quest you are going to have larger games and media files and the OS always takes up a decent chunk of your space and updates just keep adding to that.

Same like iPads with 32GB / 128GB, they give you just barely enough to want to buy the upper model.

I have the 64GB Quest and is fine as long as you stream media, some light housekeeping for apps but that's it. Many people also buy it primarily as a PC headset so wouldn't matter.

Can this be validated? Does that mean if you want to sell it in future you can't because its locked to the original purchaser?

If bought through Bestbuy and you register it under your name is this still the case?

Looking for the same answer here. I think he was talking about the oculus account that will be linked to your oculus device. You can always unlink it.

There's a whole lot of fear mongering going on in this thread. You know people will buy this for people as a gift right? How would locking a device to the person who purchased it any make sense?

Do you have any proof that they are doing this before making these claims?
