    Hi,
    Is the T-Mobile edition of the 8T supported on AT&T and other carriers? Is the bootloader locked down or can it be unlocked?

    If you have an 8T purchased direct from T-Mobile you may need to contact them to get the bootloader unlocked.

    It should work on AT&T, however like all US carriers where you bring your own phone and is not supplied by the carrier themselves, it can have issues

    Right I understand that if it's purchased under contract from T-mobile I may have issues getting the bootloader unlocked, but what about purchased directly from OP store?

    Edit:

    Excuse my bad manners, Thank you so much for helping me!

    It can still be locked to T-Mobile as OnePlus were selling the phone as part of a T-Mobile deal check with T-Mobile to be sure.

    T-Mobile variant being sold on the website is still T-Mobile locked. Once you purchase the device, you can ask T-Mobile to unlock it. However, they may have a requirement of having the phone on their network for at least 40 days (I had that issue). I would suggest contacting T-Mobile before making the purchase.
