Where to buy a OnePlus 7 Pro that works on Verizon US

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I'm on Verizon, in the US (no sub carrier or anything), and I need to upgrade from my Moto Z Play 1. OnePlus 7 Pro looks like the best option, but I cannot find where to buy one. All the options I see on Amazon are GSM, international only, etc. I see conflicting information online about whether the phone will or will not work on Verizon, and came across several articles stating that there are significant calling issues when registering with Verizon.

 

Can anyone advise on where to buy this phone in a way that I won't have compatibility issues? Thank you in advance

 

EDIT:

 

Thank you all for the advice; couldn't find a reasonable option that I was sure of, so I went ahead and just ordered a Pixel 3A (my other choice). waiting wasn't really an option, and switching carriers wasn't an option either.

Maybe when OnePlus launches the 8 (no notch PLEEEEEAAASE) then I'll sell the Pixel and grab that.

Verizon has an unusual cdma system.  Many phones are built to work with it anyway though. I personally am sort of a fan of buying phones from the manufacturer site itself.  That way I know the phone is not merely unlocked but was never locked in the first place.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Same here; too bad it's discontinued from OnePlus's website :(

The thing to do then I guess is find out which chipset the thing was produced with.  Many of them are 4 band which means “everything” it’s possible it was the only way the phone was ever produced in which case any of them will work.  It’s also possible it was produced with several chipsets though in which case you may be SOL.

Have you checked the Sprint website?  I just ordered a new phone and wanna say I saw them for sale.  

 

Edit:

They have the 5G version and that 5G won't work with Verizon.  The other bands should though.  Also, it's blue.

It might be easier to wait until the OnePlus 8, which is reportedly going to be available through Verizon.
