Although AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have promised to stop that practice, customers are still taking them to court for it.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G won’t be coming to all US carriers

Whenever a new flagship smartphone from an internationally famous brand gets announced, carriers in the US usually race to announce their support for it. With the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, however, almost the opposite has happened. It was already expected to land on Sprint first since LG and the operator have been working closely on this handset.

On concerns that the brand Huawei is a sort of spy for the Chinese state, the US Government effectively carpet-bombed Huawei out of North America - getting all major carriers to drop all Huawei brand products in the process. Now it would seem that the US government wants not only T-Mobile and Sprint to continue to avoid Huawei, it wants their parent companies to drop Huawei hardware as well.
