    I read that if you bring unlocked version to TMobile it won't work, is this correct? My girl wants the 8T but is on tmobile. And I'd rather not have to get the tmobile version .


    I'm on Metropcs by T-Mobile and my unlocked 8T works fine on it. So shouldn't it work on Tmobile if they're the same company now?

    Well from what I read the unlocked version doesnt have the right bands that is needed to run on Tmobile network.

    I'm using an unlocked one from OnePlus.com on T-Mobile right now. Bands are totally compatible/work 100%

    Check your imei on Tmobiles checker on website. Says you'll be missing features. You're using low band 5g. Not their fastest like you should.

    Yes. It works. But you will only be getting low band 5g. Not the mid range that you'd want.

    "Apart from that, you’ll mainly get wider 5G support. The OnePlus 8T Plus unsurprisingly supports both T-Mobile’s longstanding 600MHz 5G network as well as the 2.5GHz service the company switched on after completing its merger with Sprint. It won’t be the fastest 5G you can get, but it should be relatively easy to access."

    So here's proof. Bringing the unlocked 8T to T-Mobile , you'll miss out on the 2.5ghz 5g.


    The OnePlus 8T works with 5G radio bands N2 (1.9 GHz), N5 (850 MHz), N25 (2.5 GHz), N41 (1.9 GHz), N66 (1.7 GHz), N71 (600 Mhz). T-Mobile USA has access to N71, N41, N260, and N261. said:

    The T-Mobile bands n260 (39 GHz) and n261 (28 GHz) would not work on the OnePlus 8T purchased from OnePlus, nor would they work on the OnePlus 8T+ 5G purchased from T-Mobile. T-Mobile claims that the OnePlus 8T+ 5G will work with “T-Mobile’s 600 MHz 5G and 2.5 GHz 5G spectrum.”

    Honestly you don't know what you're talking about because T-Mobile doesn't operate on those 5G bands that you listed. Please do some real research before spreading lies. Thanks

    It's just knowledge. ALOT of research. New update is arriving AGAIN. One Plus is gonna keep pushing them until this phone is dialed in. Too many people like the "in between" that this phone offers. It benefits them to keep working on it.

    It does. Just not in a huge capacity. By the time tmobile builds out mmWave we'll be passed the 8t

    what I was saying to him is that no OnePlus phone utilizes the bands that he is talking about, so I'm not sure why he is still going on and on about it 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

    I am looking to buy an 8T now. As I am also on Tmobile, I realize that buying it unlocked is preferred but concerned
    that VOLTE and Tmobile voicemail app will not work on this model. Any advice and suggestions are appreciated.
