    Hi, I've updated to Os11, still 5g option is not there in the phone though I've disabled sim 2 and my carrier supports 5g. Carrier name is Etisalat, country UAE. What should I do please help.

    So far, on my Oneplus 8 Pro (IN2023) EU, OxygenOS 11.IN11BA has only 1 problem: It doesn't have 5G enabled.

    I'm on Digi.Mobil Romania, on a 5G contract, that worked flawlessly on my Huawei P40 Pro (which has VoLTE, VoWiFi and 5G support out of the box)...

    On my Oneplus 8 Pro, I can only use my contract on 4G. It is the only SIM in my phone...

    The band used by Romania for 5G is n78 (3500).

    Official statement from oneplus.com :
    LTE-TDD:B34, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 46
    5G:n1, n3, n7, n28, n78
    MIMO:LTE: B1, 3, 7, 38, 40, 41 NR: n1, n3, n7, n78...

    The phone was launched 6 months ago...

    Is there an ETA for solving the lack of 5G on a 5G phone?

    It's software restriction, I tried fixing this issue using qpst tool, no luck.

    I know it is software restricted. I also tried today with QPST without luck. The only issue is that Oneplus should have enabled all supported 5G NR bands and VoLTE + VoWiFi out of the box... The phone launched 6 months ago and a lot of countries still have not 5G support, VoLTE and VoWiFi even after after major Android version update...

    My Huawei P40 Pro had everything enabled out of the box. It's only problem is the lack of GMS...

    Actually there's a way to enable VoLTE, but do it at your own risk.



    I tried it, it works

    I also have enabled it from *#800#. It was available for Romania, but inactive...

    But I'd like to see these promised features enabled out of the box like on Huawei, Samsung, etc...
