How's your experience with the phone so far? I feel like the battery life isn't as great as expected, sometimes it drains very fast. Also, the fingerprint sensor seems a bit buggy to me.
Fingerprint sensor works great for me. No issues there. But yeah, there is something wrong with the battery drain. Hopefully an updated fixes the issue. Greenify does seem to help though
So why no instructions on how to convert to international ? And if this is worth trying. I downloaded the MSM which is posted in another thread so can always fall back. I was curious if by now anyone has tested this (*getting more regular updates from oneplus versus waiting 2 months for tmobile updates*)

I downloaded it. So what are the directions for converting and testing ?
100% DO NOT quote me on this, I'm just assuming. It should still work since 5G is a hardware thing and not a software thing. BUT I could see it not working after messing around with the software to convert to international. This is a really good question, because I have had a 6T and now a 7 Pro with T-Mobile and have converted both over to international. I just messaged T-Mobile to see about getting the 7T Pro McLaren, but if I can't convert it to international and still have 5G then it's a no go for that phone.
Function switch hack? What's that?I was on the 6T converted to international and got 150Mbps with the "function switch hack". But to see this on the 5G in any given area is nice where I live. Plus it's still a very young technology. I give it a :good: and T-Mobile one as well for not making customers give there left arm to have it.
Nope. You have to get the bootloader unlock token from OnePlus before you can do anything. It's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. LOL. I learned my lesson to never buy carrier phones. Miss the good ol days. Ok, venting done. So yeah, you have to submit for a token after getting your SIM unlocked here...https://www.oneplus.com/unlock_token. Oh, and it will take at least 7 days! LMAO.
