    -Apologies for my pocket post-

    Wanted to see if anyone could get me pointed in the right direction on getting my bootloader unlocked. After much research I'm still misunderstanding. I purchased a oneplus 8 5g from an individual on mercari. It was listed as not unlocked yet but capable and just not done yet. I might add that I'm currently on mint mobile which is a mvno of t-mobile and I am basically using there service all the time. I 1st tried the sim unlock with my card in and it failed. I then popped in my dad's tmobile sim and it wouldn't perm unlock but it did grant me 30 day temp unlock. What exactly do I need to do or steps to take to achieve my unlock of sim and then bootloader? Or can I do it now with the temp unlock? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    First you would have to establish which OP8 variant you have and if its carrier locked. If you see a T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon logo at start-up, then its carrier locked and standard procedures may not work.
