does CN ONEPUS9PRO WORK WITH.US.TMOBILE 5G
While there is crossover on some 5G bands, US carriers use various different bands, so it may or may not work depending on the carrier. You will need to research the TMobile bands. But chances are it may not work as TMobile may only allow their own phones sold onto their 5G network.
US bands Blue arrow, Chinese bands Red arrow.
I read there is a problem or wrong/missing anchor which makes 5G not working even with the same supported NR bands.
It's possible. Until someone tries a Chinese model in the US it will be hard to know. And US carriers don't like unlocked phones on their networks so that's another factor.
I wanted the OnePlus 6 avenger edition so bad that I ended up buying a Chinese version from eBay. I assume you want to use a Chinese OP in the US rather than just travelling with a CN version
My learnings :
You have to install all Google apps yourself.
I could not change to global ROM from Chinese ROM without flashing. Chinese ROM luckily supported English but that's about it. No other European or Latin American languages
Some third party apps couldn't be uninstalled.
Google Maps started acting up after couple of months. All photos taken would display a location in China for some reason
Most obvious is the need to buy a charging adapter
Certain 5G bands not supported due to carrier limitations. Flashing to global ROM doesn't work either
You can ALWAYS flash the global version on a Chinese OnePlus variant.
Except for my OnePlus One that I bought in France, me previous 5 and 6T came from China where I did a lot of business trips before, and I always flashed Oxygen OS Global version right out of the box. No problem.
My 9 Pro is also from China and I am currently running Oxygen OS India (DA) (installed by my reseller)
Know a Canadian that had working 5G while on Colour OS. Then he converted and lost it. Such an scenario is also a possibility.
Yes, but there is a tutorial on XDA to get 5G back in that case. This is also working for OnePlus phones that "should" receive the 5G but which don't.
Downside is you lose the workaround when you reboot your phone or install an update...
Yes, I agree checking on LTE. It's easier, but ones come to the 5 G, then. It is a different situation,
I actually really want to try out the color os. So so far I have not seen any link showing 。us version flash。color os。
anyone have luck for this ?
flash india version of oxygen? maybe like globe VERSION ?
then we can flash color OS ?
do I lost my US model 5g?
I misunderstood what you intended to do so I removed my comment. But not fast enough apparently 😉
If I find something put I'll let you know.
Is there a big price difference for Chinese version Vs US version factoring customs and import costs?
