Oneplus AT&T

    I was just wondering, what are the chances that the Oneplus 7 or another Oneplus phone launching on AT&T like they have on T-Mobile this year?

    No one here would be able to say, and I think OnePlus would hold that pretty tightly secret.

    There's no such thing as "leak", there's only information the company (Oneplus or another) want to spread informally, without commitment.

    Knowing AT&T, either the phone would be a better seller or exclusive phone to be launched by them. Not likely going to happen. And I gave up AT&T long ago anyways. Too expensive.

    I honestly hope not. I think OnePlus should keep it an exclusive with T-Mobile as it fits not only OP's exclusivity but also goes hand in hand with T-Mobile's message and UnCarrir vibe. I'd really hate to see OP spread outside of TMO in the US.

    Yup, that's what I do (OnePlus One via Cricket Wireless) In the US, we have so many MVNO choices, there really should be no carrier branded phones, just unlocked phones everywhere.

    I would rather see OP stay separate from all US Providers. Don't like the bloat ware that they place on it

    Well if it were to come out to other carriers, that would be a good move for OnePlus to grow the company user base. Not everyone is impatiently waiting for updates to kick out each month (like myself) nor concerned about bloatware carriers place. Some customers just want a premium phone at a not so premium price and be able to find it at a local store. And with in house support like visiting a carrier store would be a lot easier for a lot of customers vs the ones who search forums for help.

    I agree with what you say, I just don't want OP to become like the other guys. I love this phone, ans it's price point. don't want to see that disappear.

    I feel you. Price increase is inevitable tho. Add more features, price goes up. I just hope we never hit the $800+ range. Hell, anything over $650 is breaking my bank lol

    why have them carry a carrier-locked device? if you need financing, get a personal loan. you'll get you're updates much faster. can more easily root, if you find cheaper (or better!) service else where you can port your number easily.

    Damn this thread just got revived after 3 months, don't bump old posts please...

    Also in US at least, people prefer financing via carrier over buying unlocked.

    Having owned a couple of AT&T branded phones, I prefer non-branded for good reasons: NO bloat ware! My last Samsung was so loaded with the carrier and manufacturer apps, it left little space for anything else and slowed the phone down dramatically. I use my 5T with AT&T prepaid and LOVE its performance WITHOUT the stupid bloat :)

    T-Mobile used to do that towards the beginning of the smart phone era.. but as time's passed they've gotten dramatically better. On my 7 Pro it was just the usual google apps and 3 Tmobile apps, one of which is 344kb and the biggest one of 59mb. When you include this community app and OP switch, couldn't scroll the app drawer cause it was barely half of one page. I'd say that's not bad at all

    I always hated AT&T bloatware, so for the last several years I have purchased unlocked phones and use mvno (net 10 since they use AT&T towers).

    Another reason I finally decided to make a move to non carrier branded phones is to rid myself of all that useless bloatware I never used ever on at&t. Honestly, I would love to move to t-mobile or verizon but the rest of my family wants to stay on at&t sadly.

    Not going to lie, using T-Mo I always get good signal, but if I venture down some rabbit hole and end up dumb far off in the boonies, then it sucks (only complaint). Cities and rurual areas are fine though. Plus I get Netflix 100% free. What I was paying before adding Netflix is what I still pay now which is cool considering I pay for Hulu and Prime Video so I'll take the savings. Best part is it's not a 6 months or 1or2 free yrs (like other carriers), it's an as long as I have the same plan I have now kinda deal which I confirmed in store, phone, and online. You can always try using free Netflix as bait to get your fams to switch lol
