    Hello everyone,

    I have OnePlus 7 pro 5G the sprint variant and it only connects to 3G even though in my area I have 4G coverage (no 5G), anyways my software version OS 10.0.6 GM25CC, also I wanted to update to oxygen OS 11 beta version but I can't find anything that could help me, if anyone of you have any help for this it would be much appreciated. Thank you

    Ask Sprint: Oneplus don't handle the software when you choose to buy a variant: you paid cheaper for it so accept the consequences.

    How good is the signal quality where you are ?

    The fact that OnePlus mentions this
    on their product page isn't confidence inspiring at all.

    I bought it from a retail and I don't know the condition ( weather they have paid it off or not) I am currently residing in Ethiopia, there is a very good 4G coverage in my area, it also sometimes work but then after I have turned the data off and turn it back on it connects to 3G only

    You should have thought about that before buying: now you're tied with Sprint and the update will come when they decide it has to.

    what if I install the EU version of OnePlus 7pro , is there anyway I can get the oxygen OS 11 from there?

    There is a way I have unlocked the bootloader, and installed the EU version with the MSMtool but the problem is from there I couldn't find anything to update to the oxygen OS 11 beta version.

    The problem is that the local update function may not be activated and if it isn't then you're stuck.

    If you manage to get it back go to https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/...us-7-and-oneplus-7-pro.1379872/#post-22655881 and download the required ROM.

    yes that seems to be the problem, I am once again back on the official sprint OTA and waiting for an update, I don't think even sprint knows they have a device called 7 pro 5G, after the merge with T-Mobile they left everything on hold or they just don't care... imagine getting one update in over a year, while your phone is practically the same as 7 pro, it's mind blowing!

    Nope, it's working: use another browser or a computer.
