    Hello!

    My mom, who lives outside the US wants the OnePlus 8. However, the OnePlus 8 sim free version is out of stock on the OP website. I was wondering if the OP8 T mobile version would work internationally right away as I am buying it with full price from OP store, not from T mobile.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Err... no, it'll come with T-Mobile's proprietary firmware and will have to be converted to the international ROM (which is a lengthy process, mind you), you're better off looking at resellers/eBay.

    I have a support ticket open with OnePlus to see about getting a T-mobile 7T purchased directly from OnePlus carrier/network/SIM unlocked as T-mobile support said they could not do it and the place where I purchased it would have to unlock it.

    I am still waiting for a response from OnePlus support.

    Why wouldn't you just buy a network-unlocked 7T from a reseller?

    I am a T-Mobile customer already and the price was right so it's working fine for me right now.

    Just looking to network unlock in case I upgrade to a new phone and either want to sell this one off or load custom ROMs on it.

    If you buy it out right you can network unlock it the day you get it I know this to be true because I bought my OP8 from OP website but it was T-Mobile version soon as I received it I network unlocked it
