    Now that the OnePlus 5 is here we can dive into the carrier bands which OnePlus says supports up to 34 world wide carrier bands. There are 34 LTE bands supported along with some CDMA support. This means the phone will kind of work on carriers like Verizon and Sprint.

    All three of Sprint's LTE bands (25, 26, and 41) are supported. Two out of three Verizon LTE bands are supported. On Sprint the phone will theoretically work, but you will only have LTE coverage. If you go into any areas with no LTE support your phone won't drop down 3G instead you will hit GPRS if you are able to get any signal. For Verizon the same is true, but without band 13 you will have no signal indoors. For all intents of purposes we are still looking at a GSM phone unfortunately, but if you are adventurous you can give it a try. You have 15 days to return the phone once it is received.

    If you are on Verizon don't do it! I've had phones before without low frequency lte band and it's a nightmare inside buildings.

    i will give it a try and report back. Mine should be here on Friday. I already know it is going to suck indoors though which is very unfortunate.

    If the phone worked on Verizon it would sell even better. At the Value it's a great phone you van pay out of pocket and not lose a kidney in the process.

    My OP5 is waiting for me at home on the doorstep. I got it just in case band 13 is made "accessible" by the community. I'll keep it in the box for a few days until I get the bad news then it's off to Swappa! I grabbed a 128GB version since it'll probably be easy to unload if I get some bad news regarding VZW compatibility.
