    I got blue one from Amazon the official OnePlus store. It was sold out the next day.

    I am buying the green one on eBay.

    I bought my insurance plan from OnePlus for the first phone it is much cheaper than T mobile insurance. I cancelled that. I will never buy another TMobile branded phone. Compared to the unlocked versions it's just not as good.

    🤞🏾

    It came today green 12/256

    came with US charging brick in the box. Battery shows no usage!!!!

    Verizon sim card works as well.

    I am a happy camper

    total price was $1,080 same as the blue one I got from OnePlus Amazon store weeks ago.

    sellers name is never-msrp on eBay.

    also it's is on the old update and no screen issues at all.

    fyi now I see two sellers one in Texas where I got mine and one in Miami seem to have plenty of stock of OnePlus 8 pro in all colors

    I to got one from the same seller however text messages would not come in. I could send text but nothing would come in. Internet worked, both in and out. Internet worked fine. Was on support for several hours, nothing. I got the in2020 international version. So I have started a refund process and gonna get the USA version

    Edit: Also on Verizon

    So in order to make it work on Verizon you need to contact their support to add a type of "plug-in" or "feature" to your service. To the best of my knowledge it's free I had it done to my service when I had first received the 7pro. (Ofc I had to send it back for personal reasons) But after they add the feature everything works seamlessly with a reboot of the phone. The feature is called "CDMA-LESS DEVICE" and have that added to your service and things will go smoothly from there.

    ==========
    I was on chat support with Verizon and I had mentioned that they need to do a enable the "CDMA-LESS DEVICE" and they kept asking for the IMEI number and ICCI number from my sim. All in all, nothing. I am sending back the phone in question and grabbing the in2025 version which is the USA version. Also upon further investigation, the in2020 version is the Chinese version of the phone. Either way, I'll get this sorted out once I get this device shipped back and I'll get the USA version.

    ok confused the ebay seller ad says it doesn't work on Verizon. How and who are you getting the USA version from? Are you sending Oneplus a Chinese version or is the seller on eBay swapping... I never understand why people post but assume we know all the details

    Okay for example. Say you buy directly off of OnePlus website and they sell US versions. Of course it’s a US version because they’re selling to a US market. Now once you received your OnePlus device and use a Verizon SIM card, automatically, it won’t work. You have to ask the frontlines of Verizon support to add a feature called CDMA-LESS feature to your service. What this does is (from what happened to my 7 pro when I had it) they enable 4G LTE for your phone basically unlocking that part of it. If you’re aim is for using a 5G network that, to the best of my knowledge, isn’t a working thing in Verizon for OnePlus 8 Pro. Their version of the OnePlus 8 does however work with 5G but in regards of the 8Pro and 7Pro, you’ll be stuck with 4G LTE which I haven’t ever had any issues with. Now the sellers on eBay in what they’re selling you, I’m afraid you’d just have to be sharp eyed to see all their tiny details and “terms and conditions”. If they do sell a edit US version then you can use it for Verizon through what I just said. If it also doesn’t help in the front lines then you can always ask to have your case elevated. For the person that helped me, they did it within minutes.

    Then you might’ve gotten another version. Sorry for that. Hopefully it works out this time around!

    Definitely had gotten another version but I assumed after reading that Verizon had to whitelist the unlocked version, I assumed all one plus phones that were "listed as unlocked" was that. Sending the phone back soon (all packed up and have shipping label, seller paid for that). Once I get the refund, I'll search around eBay and or a site selling the oneplus 8 Pro in2025 version (us unlocked version) and hopefully no more issues. This is my first experience with OnePlus and hopefully round 2 will be a better experience

    Verizon works fine. my wife uses dual SIM .

    the issue is Verizon not the phone we have the same issue on our 7 pro.

    the Verizon sim card (8 pro and 7 pro) can't get text but it can send and place called, data is fine etc.

    Our issue is that my wife doesn't want to use the work phone which is an older iphone.

    this only started about month and a half ago with the some card issues 7 pro was working fine.

    so 7 pro and 8 pro same issues

    Ohhh see I didn't know that. I have never owned a OnePlus product before but when I seen the OnePlus 8 Pro and all its features and it being stock like, it was interested. I mean sure I could go with Samsung but they don't support their phones that long and I still see all OnePlus phones as of late being updated. Done shipped the product, now I wait for my $$$
