Unable to choose 5G in preferred network type

Hey.

I just got my OnePlus Nord yesterday and was looking forward to test 5g connectivity. I am, however, not able to choose 5g as preferred network type. The only options I have are as shown in the attached picture.

I tried to follow some solutions for the OnePlus 8 found here: https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/no-5g-option.1236228/#post-21689243

When enabling NR/LTE/TDSCDMA/GSM/WCDMA (after *#*#4636#*#* -> Phone) I am able to make the settings show I have enabled 5g(see attached image), however, the option is not selectable after pressing to change preferred network type. This is lost when rebooting the Phone, and the setting is set as 2g/3g/4g

I have confirmed with my carrier that 5g is activated and should be working on a Phone that is supporting 5g. I have also tried upgrading my software to 10.5.3. I can confirm that I am in a 5g supported area, as shown in the attached image.


Any ideas? Thanks :)

I figured out my problem! Even through my carrier is supporting 5g, they are not, for some reason, supporting 5g/VoWIFI/VoLTE for OnePlus Nord.

In an email today they also wrote they would never support it, however, one of our newspapers have been in touch with OnePlus, who confirmed support for my carrier is on the way.

For any one else living in Norway, the carrier is Telenor/Talkmore.

Yep, same thing for Happybytes. Telenor claims it is OnePlus not having an agreement with them as well.

I have however managed to get VoLTE and VoWIFI working with the logkit hack. However I have not gotten 5G working with a hack yet.
