I was the one who contacted fcc they contacted OnePlus on my behalf haven't heard anything yet. I don't know why it's such an issue for them I've heard people say they have metro n200 unlocked from the page

I have unlocked the bootloader of metropcs Nord N200 successfully. The metropcs N200 has the same model number as T-Mobile version while the metropcs nord N10 has a different model number from t-mobile N10.

if its a metro phone you wont be able to get a unlock token via oneplus they dont have the imei in there data base and are clueless how to do it
Just wait until you can unlock your phone via the unlocker app.
I literally just unlocked everything a few minutes ago without messing with my phone.

You have no idea about what bootloader unlock actually is.

Your bootloader is still locked unless you get the unlock token from oneplus and flash it in fastboot.

My guy, I've been doing this since 2008.

My phone actually booted the dynamic system image and hit a DMverity wall. Previously, my phone wouldn't even attempt to install the DSU because because of the bootloader being locked.

    The simplest way to check is to boot into fastboot mode and check if it shows "device state-locked" or not.

    Enabling OEM unlocking is like showing ID to verify you are an adult but you still need to buy a movie ticket to watch a NC-17 movie.

    We are missing the "ticket" (unlock token bin file from oneplus) here.

    Good news:
    Oneplus finally escalated my request to higer level manager and my metropcs n10 is now eligible for bootloader unlock token.
    I just submitted mine and will wait 7 days to get the unlock token.
