OnePlus Nord 10 5GOEM unlock via OnePlus Nord N10 5G Metro

    Can someone help me? I started buying oneplus devices after modding Samsung flagship devices for years. Now I get a brand new phone and the OEM unlock is grey out. Metro said I have to call OnePlus one plus blames metro. Need to get this unlocked so I can do root and recovery on this


    I am really surprised to even have to post this about a OnePlus device when that's their whole selling point and purpose

    Thanks in advance I tried the metro app and it says I have to wait but I believe that just unlocks the network I plan to stay on MetroPCS

    Hi, carrier locked phone are much more difficult to mod, regardless of the brand. Technically, MetroPCS still owns your phone.

    Made complaint to fcc as I bought it out right so they can't do that.. I could see if it was on a discount or something but I paid retail for it
    I have had service with them sense they were CDMA and this is the first time I'm told a device cannot be unlocked

    Because I was unaware they did this. I bought my last OnePlus for this reason direct but I assumed OnePlus was automatically unlocked and able to have access to bootloader. I just got it yesterday and fordward the receipt to fcc. If they can't I'll return it and do exactly that

    The unlock process is mess from what people have reported.
    Getting the unlock code is a task in itself and the webpage for the same was reported to be broken multiple times.

    So...if you can ,just return it and get one from the OnePlus store directly.

    Oh....I'm just saying you got it done easy without much of a headache and that's good !

    With the webpage not working and general misinformation from both carriers and OnePlus support staff regarding unlocking....you had it easy :p
