OnePlus 3 4G LTE bands support: here is which carriers it will work on in the United States

The OnePlus 3 will come in three models: one aimed at the North American market in general, another one for Europe, and a third one for the Chinese market. But will the One Plus 3 work on the major U.S. carriers?

OnePlus has kindly listed all the supported 4G LTE bands for the U.S. version of the phone and we're glad to see that there is support for bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, and 17. 

What does this mean? 

Well, you can take a look at our 4G LTE cheat sheet, where we break down the LTE bands required for each carrier, and you'd see that the OnePlus 3 will work on AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as on their related MVNOs in the United States, but does not support 4G LTE band 13, the main band for Verizon Wireless, so you won't be able to use the LTE network with it. Sprint 4G LTE bands are also not supported.

The European version of the phone supports all major carriers in the Old Continent, and it also supports the crucial band 20, which is good news. There is also a dedicated model for China with support for its specific TDD-LTE bands 38-41.

So how do you select the right model? Easy, you will get it automatically when you log in for your country at, and you can buy the phone right away if you like it.

I was ready to order the new OP3, but if it will not work on Verizon the deal is off. Sucks.

Stupid CDMA carriers. Why don't they upgrade to latest tech.

Isn't Band 4 the XLTE band? So would it still work on CDMA and then only on the XLTE Band? I guess that wouldn't help those who live in areas without XLTE but Verizon has expanded that coverage pretty well so far.

There is a good reason it doesn't support verizon or sprint and why most international phones won't support those carriers. Companies know you won't buy a phone just for LTE so even if they supported verizon/sprint LTE bands you wouldn't buy it because you wouldn't have a fallback network and would only be able to use LTE data. For it to work correctly it would have to have a CDMA radio with an ESN that Verizon and Sprint would have to create a process to put on their network. Then the company would have to sell out to the carriers like samsung does and let them fill their product with worthless bloat. CDMA has it's advantages but universality (plug and play sims) isn't one of them, however it does have better range through buildings. I think Oneplus did the right thing though, instead of selling out to the carriers (verizon and sprint) and probably having to charge a lot more due to stagnate inventory.
