    Hi Guys,
    I have the sandstone black 64GB in my cart, just have to make the payment but the thing is One Plus doesn't ship here (Sri Lanka) and also If i get it through a mail forwarding company it would cost me a huge amount because of Tax and also my other option is to get it from China (Chinese version) from the oneplus.cn site (My dad keep's on going there). I am planning to get the 64GB Bamboo version from there ( It looks amazing) Even though it's going to cost me $424. LTE Band 3 is the one I want and the I think it supports it. If i get it from the international site and no bamboo version it's going to cost me a $359 for sandstone then shipping, customs it's going to cost maybe $450 - $475 and add the extra $49 for the bamboo version even though it's not in production now and the one's that are there are being sold for $80 in 3rd party sites so I feel the chinese version is much worther. Oh and also it's unfair how the bamboo and the JBL version is being sold in China but not Globally and also If i get the sandstone from the China site it would cost me $375. So what would you guys do? I can get OTA updates if I flash to CM11s right?

    Also does the Chinese version support Band 3 also known as 1800?
    The phone would cost me $380 without any customs duty/tax only with shipping to Sri Lanka

    I got a Chinese Bamboo version, $369...

    Would I recommend it? Hell yeah, great looking, feels nice in the hand and just adds that little difference to the common Sandstone and white.......
    Had it for around a month now, and not a single issue, no yellow band, still running 33R, not planning on updating to 38R till sh** is sorted out....

    Check this out :
    GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz
    WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/8
    LTE: Bands: 1/3/4/7/17/38/40

    Now, I am going to start with USA compatibility. If anyone else would like me to add compatibility with their carrier, please reply to the thread, and I'll see what I can do. Hopefully, this will benefit all members of the community.

    USA

    AT&T
    2G/EDGE/GPRS : Supported on both 850 and 1900 MHz bands
    3G/UMTS/HSPA : Supported on both bands 2 and 5.
    LTE : Only supported on bands 4 and 17. Bands 2 and 30 are not supported; however, they are usually only deployed to create extra bandwidth in high capacity areas. Band 17 is AT&T's major LTE band.
    MVNOs of AT&T : Straight Talk, Net10, AIO

    T-Mobile
    2G/EDGE/GPRS : Supported on both 850 and 1900 MHz bands
    3G/UMTS/HSPA : Supported on both bands 2 and 4 ("4G" HSPA+)
    LTE: Supported on currently deployed Band 4. However, T-Mobile plans to deploy Bands 2 and 12 to extend coverage. So, if you have LTE signal now, you're okay. If you don't, then you most likely never will with the One.
    MVNOs of T-Mobile : MetroPCS, Ultra Mobile, Lycamobile, Straight Talk, Net10

    Sprint
    INCOMPATIBLE

    Verizon
    INCOMPATIBLE

    chinese version is configured to be used only within China and not outside China. So if you buy the chinese version, you will not be able to use at all. Think thrice.
