    Hi All.

    This is my very first post.

    When will the one plus 8 pro start dual sim support in the USA?

    I was so excited to get this phone, but as soon as i open the package, it said that it only supports sim1.

    Any time line from one plus?

    Thanks,
    M.

    Good luck! We are on our third update and nothing. All we hear is “SOON”. This is the worst excuse for a technical support department I have ever seen.

    I thought the latest update fix this issue and apparently it is not the case.

    I just can't wait for a lawsuit
    the small little fish who wanted to swim with the big guys, this is OP
    great vision, no execution
    prices to same level as other without delivering on the promises
    And the so called technical support team... I think it is better not having answers, the one they give are BS... they obviously take the US customers for idiots

    I personally think it would be better to fallback to 4g mode if using dual sim than to somehow force single sim 5G.
    If you are a 2 sim user your priority surely is 2 sim. I use 2 sim. But I don't have 5G access yet.

    Poor choise or not... Maybe certain markets forces them to do that choise.
    Have you ever seen a phone that uses 5G and dual sim at the same time? I'm having trouble finding info about that of some reason...

    From the beginning I supported them, I buy the OP8pro I use two sims and to my surprise one does not work, they say that soon when I update the cell phone there are three and nothing !! Don't catch the ******* customers!!!!

    I was told we would get Dual SIM support "in the next OTA," pre 10.5.11, by a CS rep. 10.5.11 is here, and still no Dual SIM in NA. XDA has several speculative threads about it with guesses for end of July, but IIRC they said that for April, May, and June as well. I made use of Dual SIM and eSIM heavily in my OnePlus 6T and iPhone 11 Pro Max, but now I have to carry two phones around. Even if it doesn't come until August, I'd still appreciate some sort of timeline and official statement from a community mod.

    Hey, shipped my one plus 8 pro all the way to Jamaica.... Duties double the price of the phone... I've paid 2 grand for the phone and I specifically chose this phone because of the dual SIM capabilities. Jamaica does not have 5G yet I still can't use the dual SIM capabilities.
    Is there a timeline? If not I need to return it, I cannot carry two phones around everyday.

    2 Grand for limited usage can't work. I love the phone but come on. Atleast provide us with some feedback or an estimated timeline please. I would hate to have to switch brands.

    Same with me. have been waiting for 6 months now !! and everytime CS arrogantly says "ITS COMING IN NEXT OTA" !!!!! such an ignorant company !!!! having priced at higher range and making users to pay a whopping 900$ and asking users to wait for an indefinite time !!!!!

    Feels like made a big mistake of buying One Plus 8 !!!!

    for the same amount I would have bought a better working phone...which works as specified in the feature list !!!

    Despite so many users reporting on dual SIM, One Plus is busy in launching new products !!!! ignoring issues with existing products!!! NOT A WAY TO GROW BUSINESS BY IGNORING EXISTING USERS!!!!

    Stable 11 with dual sim is rumored to relese close to 8T relese. 14 Okt. So you might be some days short unless you start using beta.

    I try es to install the beta but unsure how to extract the .jar file to the root directory

    You don't extract it. It is a zip file. Many browsers adds jar of some reason. Rename so it becomes zip.
    Just remember if you use beta you will need to wipe if going back to stable.

    I guess I just don't understand how to do it. Will the next update definitely fix the dual SIM issue? I love my OPO but can live without dual SIM

    Well... They announce a device with 11 pre-installed the 14th. That usually means that they launch stable OS near that date. That they failed to deliver on 10 does not make this untrue. People already use dual sim on betas.

    I wasn't asking anyone to comment on my priorities, I was asking if anyone knows if fix for the dual SIM will definitely be in the next software release
