    You also have to fill a unlock bootloader form and wait 2 weeks for a code. Yup this is going back tomorrow. I will just order the OP version on the 1st.

    I don't care about the bootloader or whether it's locked to T-Mobile or not, the main thing is bloatware and software updates. Can you report on bloatware please?

    so from what I understand, I can trade in my old OnePlus phone to get half off the new one but it will have the T-Mobile boot logo and bloat ware and I'll lose the dual SIM functionality. But I can get it unlocked and the bootloader unlocked after paying off the phone and submitting the form to TMobile? or OnePlus?

    Also after I pay it off and get it unlocked, how do I remove the T-Mobile boot screen and have it run like a international version?

    bloat ware is the T-Mobile stuff so it will probably be like the T-Mobile app and TMobile Tuesdays and stuff.

    You would have to wait for ROMs to be developed with those things being overwritten.

    Unlock the bootloader. Than you can. The process is just unnecessary.

    If you want control of your device buy from Oneplus directly. I had to call T-Mobile to sim unlock and you have to fill out a form to unlock the bootloader. If you don’t mind that than buy from T-Mobile.

    if you're on a T-Mobile plan it's worth it to just get the phone through them.

    I have TMobile but I don't want to see a boot screen from them or their bloat apps. but I want the half off [e]1f602[/e] and I'm also impatient [e]1f602[/e] I'll prob end up buying it online cuz I don't want to lose any sort of functionalities and I don't want anything not stock on the phone. gonna kill me to wait those few shipping days.

    Ok so sim unlock also unlocks bootloader setting. I’m about to run the command and see if it works fully.

    I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't have the same radios in both versions of the phone. I have t-mobile as my carrier, but I'm buying mine unlocked directly from OnePlus. I'll just sell my Pixel 2 XL in Swappa for more than the measly $300 trade-in T-Mobile is offering.
