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. Meanwhile, for a closer look at the handset, you should check out our OnePlus 5T hands-on.
