You need to SIM unlock the phone before you can unlock its bootloader.

If you have the T-Mobile variant, check this thread to see if they can SIM unlock your phone:

Run the adb "debloater" script here if you have a T-Mobile device:

No need to reboot, once you finish that, going into Developer options should allow you to set OEM Unlocking to whatever you want. Easy peasy.

If it is from T-Mobile, you'll need to go into bootloader to get the serial, unlock code, and IMEI to submit a ticket to Oneplus for an Unlock Token and then wait a week to get it.

You can skip all of that if it's direct from OnePlus - just toggle OEM unlocking in developer options then go into bootloader mode and 'fastboot oem unlock'.
