Badge

Having both a oneplus 7t  pro 5g and a oneplus 8 5g when might they receive the stand alone update? As of today neither have any updates since June.

The OnePlus 8 5G already supports SA and NSA on N2, N5, N41, N66, and N71. 

The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren supports SA on N41 and N71.

Yes but until TM updates the phone to activate SA on the 600mhz band you are left with data on N71 and voice on another much higher band. You are limited to the coverage of the much higher band in short.

Both shipped with SA supported!  T-Mobile does not update devices.  OEM's do.  The very little feedback and bloat T-Mobile offers to the OEM's to include isn't even worth mentioning most of the time.

Then why did TM post they would be sending out a update to these phones stating it was a update to make the phones stand alone? As a point of interest neither of my phones have ever connected to voice on the 600mgz band even if parked next to the tower it is always data then voice is band 66 or 2.

Things also need to work on the network side.  Towers can easily be remotely updated and brought online.  In terms of device updates.  T-Mobile obviously has insight into when updates are being prepared and pushed. 

Have you considered signing up for the FUT program with OnePlus for your T-Mobile devices?  You will get beta updates and see how the testing and feedback actually works and get to interact with the development team behind the T-Mobile builds of Oxygen OS. You can find the threads and instructions on how to apply on the OnePlus official forums.

I agree their latest is pushing the update for the oneplus 8 G  and sometime the 7t pro. To date nothing on the 8 G.

No I have not looked into the FUT program.

 

OnePlus does not update the 7T Pro 5g McLaren edition model # HD1925. Updates to this phone are provided by T-Mobile and T-Mobile only. OnePlus sends T-Mobile the firmware and T-Mobile does the 5G Network part. You can ask OnePlus and they will tell you themselves. That's why the HD1925 isn't in the OnePlus Updater available in the Play Store. If OnePlus was providing updates those who chose to could be running the Android 11 Open beta 7 OnePlus has made available to other model #'s. In fact this model isn't even offered for sale in the US except through T-Mobile. The other model of the 7T Pro McLaren edition are on completely different firmware and do not offer 5G that's the HD1913 dual sim international edition which does get it's updates direct from OnePlus and can be used with the Updater App.

I have!  I am a OnePlus FUT member for multiple models, T-Mobile and OnePlus direct.  I know exactly how the process works and who contributes what.
