If it's available/provisioned to your SIM, I'd assume that setting your Preferred Network Type to the variant that includes 5G should allow it to be received.

I support some clients on Telus, but I'm not well versed in how they're rolling out 5G and/or what bands they're using, etc.

Thank you tho, I called telus, they said band N66 supported but their system band uncertified device, oneplus 9 pro won't be able to connect 5G shortly, hope they will unlock it months later.

for now bad answer is YES, they ban phone by brand, they told me only LG, HUAWE, Samsung, Apple etc on their wesite will be supported out of box, but other brand not guaranteed.
That's unfortunate. I swear I remember my OnePlus 8 Pro being 5G compatible though. I never saw it in the status bar but it was an option inside settings. Strange that the 9 is not seeing 5G anywhere.

Maybe someone will come out with some kind of mod or tool to force 5G.

Sad situation this is. Stranger still is that I had a Xiaomi Mi 10 last year and I was able to get 5G in certain locations. And at one point Telus was the least restrictive when it came to VoLTE and WiFi Calling enablement on non-Telus branded phones.

    What do you mean by banned? They aren't allowing 5G on OP devices?
