    beutrocks , May 4, 2014 :
    The reason I am making this thread is not to ask about which carriers you can use for the one but to hopefully eliminate the reoccurring threads asking about which carrier they can use. On the specs page here it provides the cell frequencies that the one can use. One last thing I should clear up is how I am getting the UMTS frequency values and that is the WCDMA bands because UMTS uses WCDMA bands as its communication technology.
    Frequencies
    • GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz
    • UMTS/HSDPA: 2100, 1900, 1700, 850, 900MHz
    • LTE: 1,3,4,7,17,38,40 BANDS

    CARRIERS
    USA CARRIERS
    • T-Mobile
    • AT&T
    • MetroPCS
    • StraightTalk
    • Maybe more check the frequencies
    • PROBABLY NOT SPRINT/VERIZON/US CELL
    WORLDWIDE CARRIERS
    CANADA

    • Rogers
    • Telus
    • Bell
    • Sasktel
    • Eastlink
    • Partial working ones
    • Almost all be sure to check frequencies.
    France
    • Free
    • Partial Orange/SFR/Bouygues LTE
    Germany
    • Telekom
    • O2
    • Vodafone
    • E-PLUS
    Netherlands
    • T-Mobile
    • Vodafone
    Italy
    • Tim
    • 3
    • Vodafone
    UK
    • EE
    • O2 and Vodafone no LTE
    • Partial 4g on 3
    Belgium
    • Base
    • Mobile Vikings
    • Proximus
    • Mobistar

    China

    • China Mobile
    Hong Kong
    • CSL
    • China Mobile
    • Smartone
    • 3
    Macau
    • CTM
    • 3
    • Smartone
    Greece
    • Cosmote
    • Wind
    • Vodafone
    Ireland
    • Meteor
    • 3
    • Vodafone and O2 but LTE probably won't work.
    Spain
    • Movistar
    • Vodafone
    • Orange
    • YOIGO
    Australia
    • Telstra
    • Optus
    • Vodafone
    Philippines
    • Globe
    • Smart
    • Sun no LTE
    Post any you know will work I will keep the list updated. Also I cannot guarantee full compatibility as the list is partially user generated. MVNO's usually will work.

    Nice thank you. According to wiki, AT&T LTE bands are 2,4,17.
    Since oneplus will support 4 & 17, I guess i'm good!

    It should work perfectly well on Bell, Telus, Rogers, and SaskTel in Canada, too. I'm not sure if they allow BYOD (I am not Canadian) but the frequencies are at least supported.

    Not really. As you said, this information is available in the FAQ thread and the OnePlus website. Career compatibility is something that can be clarified with 2 minutes of searching on Google.

    Straight Talk will work, because it uses AT&T and T-Mobile towers

    Sprint should work cause they will allow you to get a SIM card to use if needed and they use some of those frequencies listed. I have a buddy of mine who will test for sure.

    As far as I know, Verizon and Sprint uses SIM card because LTE requires the use of SIM card. For their phone service such as running on 3G, it still requires CDMA radio. The only reason why Nexus 5 works on Sprint because it has CDMA radio.

    Just saying it probably won't work unless your phone have CDMA ;) Sprint only use CDMA/WiMax and LTE (which is why phones have SIM Card)

    For Canadians, I only know of 2 carriers that uses GSM which is Roger Wireless and Telus. The rest of them I think or CDMA which would not work with this phone as it does not support CDMA.

    Well having a SIM card canot be why it works/doesn't work. I have had AT&T and T-Mobile and used a SIM card in both of them.
