OnePlus 5T- US Version UnlockedI know OnePlus phones are not on Mint's Wifi Calling list, but have you -- by some miracle -- had any luck getting it to work on your 5T?

Wifi calling works on my oneplus 5
Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 purchased from Samsung.com -- works wonderfully and even band 71 is supported.

Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 6 here, both work with WiFi Calling. Remember to enable it on your Mint preferences as well as on the phone settings.
iPhone 6 Plus previously with Verizon, works like a champ!
Been using for a month, LOVE IT! https://amzn.to/2Hx9wEH
OnePlus 5T- US Version Unlocked

OnePlus 3
Wifi calling is not supported for this phone by Mint.
I am bouncing back and forth (move the SIM over) testing 2 different phones right now... The Moto E4 ($99, works with both CDMA (Verizon) and GSM carriers) and ZTE Blade V8 Pro ($130, larger, lots of newer tech, and dual SIM capability). Both sell new unlocked from factory. I am testing which one I like better and will sell the other locally.
When the ZTE is in use, I keep my current company SIM in the Moto E4 (PagePlus, uses Verizon towers) for daily use. The only downside I've seen so far is TMobile/Mint does not have the coverage and signal strength for consistent data that the Verizon towers do, but they have been making large strides these past few years so it may be comparable in another few years.
ATT Samsung Galaxy s7 with an unbranded firmware.
4g LTE works full speed.
Nexus 6 with Nougat. Had no trouble setting it up. Find the 4G LTE speeds slow, but never had good speeds in my location even when I used T-Mobile. Wi-fi calling works well.

That's great advice!!!
To ensure that your device will work, it must meet the following specifications;

Compatible BYOP devices include:
  • Most unlocked, GSM-network phones
  • Unlocked AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless, Simple Mobile, Straight Talk and MetroPCS phones
  • Most phones with a SIM card
If you are still unsure if your phone will work with the Mint SIM service, visit www.willmyphonework.net. Once there, enter your phone’s brand and model, U.S. for country and, under “Carrier,” choose our partner company, Ultra Mobile.

Thanks,
Mint SIM Support

And to add to this, the phone must support BOTH network bands.. Which are LTE 4 and LTE 12. If it only shows 1 band being supported, you will get spotty service at best.
I have 3 different phones I've used while I've been here with Mint Sim.
I'm currently using a Pixel 2XL and it runs fantastic! Wifi calling and all
A Essential Phone PH-1 phone, I bought from Spirnt, had to wait for it to unlock, and once it did, it
worked great as well.. It also has Wifi calling.
And the last phone is a Nexus 6. Of course it has WiFi calling. Works fine, just a bit old, and slow.

Other phones.. Mate-8 Works as well, just no wifi calling.

I am using the Moto G5+ and it works great, including with wifi calling.
I was told that my current phone was unlocked but it didn’t work. What phones are compatible meaning truly unlocked. I’m looking for one and I want to make sure it will work. Thank you ????
