OnePlus 5?

Question

The OnePlus 5 lists itself as compatible with USC but I've heard reports of USC blocking or limiting phones they don't sell.  It seems a lot of people with Pixel phones had to lie and say it was another model when they activated.

 

If I get myself a OnePlus 5 is USC going to refuse to switch my line to it from my Galaxy S6?

They won't allow it. It doesn't support CDMA,. So no voice...

But @Coolasice, it does support CDMA.  This is the OnePlus 5 not one of the older ones.

 

https://oneplus.net/5/specs

 

Bands

FDD LTE: Band 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/29/30/66

TDD LTE: Band 38/39/40/41

TD-SCDMA: Band 34/39

UMTS(WCDMA): Band 1/2/4/5/8

CDMA EVDO: BC0

GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

 

They even state on the OnePlus site that it is compatible with US Cellular.

 

But, I know USC can be picky.  If they're not going to allow it, I'll just move my number to another carrier that will.

If you get the phone, even with the intention of leaving USCC, you can always call and say it's a Nexus and see if it starts working?

I mean... If it has the ability and hardware, there's absolutely no reason it wouldn't - other than the CS rep saying it won't (because they don't know or care) - so try it.

If I had one or knew someone with one id gladly do it.

It may work,. You probably would have to lie and say it's a Nexus device and do it over the phone, not in store of course...
