The OnePlus 6 isn’t compatible with major U.S. carriers Verizon or Sprint. Like its predecessors, you’ll have to use OnePlus’ latest flagship with a SIM card from GSM carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T.

The information arrives via the official OnePlus 6 website, where the company notes that only one other carrier, U.S. Cellular, supports the new device.

Both VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling are available through T-Mobile, though, if it’s any conciliation.
