PSA: OnePlus 5T won’t work on Verizon and Sprint

The OnePlus 5T is launching in the US and other
markets tomorrow, November 21, less than a week after being officially
announced. 

If you’re planning to buy the smartphone and use it in the US, you have to know that it won’t work on two
of the largest carriers: Verizon and Sprint. More exactly, the phone is compatible with some
of Verizon’s and Sprint’s LTE bands, but that’s not enough. As OnePlus puts it:
“Even if a device supports some or all of the required frequencies for a
carrier, it will not be able to connect unless the device is approved for the
network.”

 

Of course, just like its predecessor – OnePlus 5 – the OnePlus 5T is certified
to work on AT&T (including Cricket Wireless) and T-Mobile (including
MetroPCS), being fully compatible. In addition, the new handset works on US Cellular’s LTE
network.  

 

The table below comes from OnePlus, and shows what US
carriers are, or aren’t compatible with the 5T (only LTE bands are listed).

 

As a reminder, the OnePlus 5T will be sold unlocked, only
online, starting at $499 (6 GB of RAM + 64 GB of storage space). OnePlus says this is the fastest phone out there,
but we’ll have to thoroughly review it to see about that.
