    Hi all,

    Does anyone here know when OnePlus are likely to have UK stock of op5 available again, particularly the 128GB version? I want to buy sim-free and O2-unencumbered, but urgently, to replace my wife's broken phone. Don't want to buy Samsung, but that's the only other option right now.

    Thanks in advance!

    No stock available and we probably won't see any showing up in the future. The phone was discontinued to make ways for the newm unannounced OnePlus 5T (or whatever name it'll have).

    Ah, nuts. I hope you're wrong, but history suggests otherwise. I wish OP would sort out their stock management, and ensure there's always product to buy. It's not good, having money walking off to competitors.

    Probably stock of the OP5T at the end of November at the earliest.

    It's been out of stock for more than two weeks now and rumor has it that the OP5T will only be launched after November 20.

    Some apparently in stock via Amazon Marketplace sellers. If O2 have them in stock (O2 stores can search other stores stock levels) I don't think they are locked or branded in any way (the 3T I got from them last year was vanilla), you should be able to get them to sell it to you not linked to a contract (or at worst with a SIM only SIM which might cost you a tenner).

    The only other option is likely to wait for the 5T.

    Thanks, all. Not an encouraging picture, as I need to get my wife a phone now. Unfortunately, the ones on Marketplace are at rip-off prices, from sellers that (to put it kindly) I can't be sure would be subject to UK consumer protection law. But I'll try O2.

    You also could buy a very cheap one like Cubot Harfury Mix and when the 5t arrives, you'll get that and sell the Cubot

    I did go to O2 in the end. Luckily, my local shop had stock of the 128GB model, so it was quick and easy, even if I had to buy a £15 SIM I didn't need.

    And...oh my, what a lovely phone!

    O2 still lists the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3T for sale on their website.
