Does this work for T-Mobile USA version NE2217?
No, and OnePlus seems to have no interest in updating its unlock token page since the 9 Pro. I have asked several times and no one in cust. service has any idea what's going on months after release of the NE2217.

I only bought the 10 Pro because I expected to be able to unlock the bootloader, as I did easily with the 8. At this point, I'm looking to sell the 10 Pro.
 
I upgraded from an unlocked 7 pro. I only got the T-Mobile version because they gave me too good of a deal to pass up. Honestly I'm pretty happy with it stock. There's not much you really need root for anymore unless you're developing. It was a big plus back in the day but not so much anymore.

it'll depend on when T-Mobile gives the ok. T-Mobile is subsidizing your phone so you need to play by their rules.

Honestly if a service provider is going to tamper with the device, just don't bother with them.

I'm in the UK but the crap I've seen people have with T-Mobile and Verizon is just insane, avoid them like the plague.

I think you'd be better off converting a Chinese phone and that's something I'd avoid more than sleeping on the opposite side of the bed to amber heard.

Go global, unless theres a fool proof way to make it to global.

EE in the UK did this on the Sony z1, I ended up bricking my device, so I sent it back via a third party retailer.

Original - EE.
Retailer - carphone warehouse.

They sent me an unlocked version, with a normal bootloader.

Not sure if that's an option for you. A little convaluted but certainly worked for me.
