    I upgraded from the Oneplus 6t to the 8 just a couple weeks ago. I'm with Tmobile and suddenly my signal is spotty and often has no signal for calls and texts in certain areas of my house. NEVER had that issue on 6t.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try removing and re-seating the sim tray to ensure good contact with the sim card (with phone powered off).

    Unfortunately it is still the same. I ordered a signal booster from Tmobile. I've seen lots of complaints about the same thing so if that booster doesn't work I'll just have to sell the phone and go with something else because it would seem Oneplus installed a poor quality antenna in a lot of the series 8 phones.

    I remember we had to get a signal booster for the wife's iPhone 5S, but that was in the days before wifi calling.

    Yep I have wifi calling enabled but it still doesn't help with text messages. And I actually also think it still misses calls even with it on. Only when I'm in the man cave but nonetheless it never happened on the 6t

    T-Mobile wifi calling does work with text messaging, at least in south Florida.

    I am pretty sure they skimped on the antenna for this phone.
    I borrowed my mom's old Moto G and used my Sim card for a day. Got all messages and calls normal as they should be with no delay. I later put the Sim card back in the Oneplus 8 and once again had spotty signal coverage. This is all inside my house.
    I just decided to sell it on ebay.

    And I will replace it with a Moto Edge. Back to Motorola I go after having a Oneplus 5,6t and short lived Oneplus 8.
