Understanding the Nothing phone (1)’s compatible carriers
Nothing Phone 1
The Nothing phone (1) is officially out now, but unfortunately, it is not coming to the U.S. region. This means that you won’t be able to buy the swanky new smartphone from any American carrier, whether it’s a locked or an unlocked variant. Of course, unofficial models might make their way to the U.S. market. If you do get your hands on one, you’ll have to do your homework about the best compatible telecommunication operator.
Nothing Phone 1 In a statement made to PCMag, Nothing confirmed that it is a lot of work to get a new smartphone supported by a nation’s cellular networks. There are many excellent cell phone plans in the U.S., but you can’t use them all on the Nothing phone (1).
Nothing Phone 1 You’ll still be able to use the phone (1) in the U.S., but the quality of coverage will be poor on T-Mobile. Meanwhile, AT&T users will only be able to access limited voice capabilities. For other networks, you’ll have to call and check compatibility with your individual provider.
Across the pond, customers in the UK and Europe can grab the Nothing phone (1) from many local carriers. For instance, the British telecom operator O2 is already offering the phone (1) with various cell phone plans to choose from. You won’t have to suffer bad network coverage as Nothing has launched its brand new Android phone officially in those areas.
Nothing Phone 1 There’s a lot of hype surrounding the Nothing Phone 1 launch, especially considering its midrange price. But there are valid reasons for the fanfare. The Phone 1 is Carl Pei’s first phone launch since his departure from OnePlus, which he led from a startup beloved by serious Android fans to a global purveyor of world-class phones.
Nothing says it’s sold more than half a million pairs of its Ear 1 earbuds, its first consumer tech product, since its launch last August. And Nothing counts a glittering group of backers — including iPod co-inventor Tony Fadell, Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin and GV, formerly Google Ventures — all betting Pei can create a big something out of his curiously named company.

The Phone 1, which is available in both black and white, went up for sale today, July 12. It’s slated for a global release, hitting distributors across the world including the UK, Germany, India and Hong Kong. There’s currently no plan for a US release, a spokesperson for the company said.
While pricing varies across markets, the Phone 1, starts at approximately $475 for the base 8GB RAM, 128GB storage variant and maxes out at about $590 for the 12GB RAM, 256GB storage variant after converting from international prices. With this price range, the Phone 1 is up against the iPhone SE 2022, the Google Pixel 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, among others.

Nothing Phone 1 So, you recently got the Nothing phone (1) and are done admiring the brilliant design of the phone. You’re ready to make the most off the smartphone and enable all of its best features. However, if you’re coming from an older iOS device or a heavy skin like Xiaomi’s MIUI, you may find the stock-like interface of NothingOS a bit confusing to get around.
Nothing Phone 1 Worry not, here are the top 15 settings and features on the Nothing phone (1) that you need to check out before you start using it.
Nothing Phone 1 Enlarge folders on the home screen
Nothing phone (1) has a unique implementation for the organisation of folders on your home screen. When you group multiple apps into a folder, you can long-press on the folder to enlarge it. The folder will now not only appear bigger, but also allow you to access the first three apps in the folder directly, while the rest of the folder can be accessed by pressing the bottom-right group of icons in the folder.
Nothing Phone 1
Whether Nothing’s freshman Phone (1) has you excited or not, there might be another reason to be interested in it. Nothing has just released its first set of kernel sources for the Nothing Phone (1). Paired with the fact that security researcher Linuxct revealed that the device should be bootloader unlockable, it sounds like the phone might have some custm ROMs to look forward to.
ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY
The timing here is notable, given recent events. The Nothing Phone (1) was only technically released on Tuesday, July 12th, and kernel sources are being released a mere three days later. For a little perspective, although it claims to be a pro-ROM and pro-developer brand, OnePlus has been notably late to release its kernel sources recently.
Although it was a little more prompt, even the OnePlus 10 Pro’s kernel sources took two weeks to land, and that’s actually pretty fast for some Android brands. It’s not rare for a source release to take even longer than that.
With kernel sources and an unlockable bootloader, custom ROMs probably aren’t too far behind.
I’ve reached out to Nothing directly to see what the company’s stance on ROMs is and if it plans to embrace the practice in the same way that Carl Pei’s last company did, but representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In the meantime, interested developers can dive into the source over on Github.
