Any way to get the Vivo account? Also Telegram notifications don't work. It doesn't show notifications on the icon as badge nor on the notifications shade. Any help please?

You have 2 steps i see on video :

• Battery Optmisation parameter
• When u switch between, you need to lock app not be in part of Vivo Freedom My Memory for no reason...

Still don't have mine, then it's theoritical, i still have Vivo Nex and same extra optimisation...

I purchased this device also, so far the build quality and specs are amazing! As for the UI it could be better, or I am just not used to it as this is my first Vivo device.
One big issue I am having is I can not send MMS messages, APN is all correct by default even reset the APN and I have allowed every possible permission and single permission possible. Even removed battery optimization which is key.
As for launcher I do get an option to choose Nova but it does not stick, always goes back to main launcher when hitting the home key

I read you need to force multiple time to validate "alternative" launcher....

Check apn settings, Make sure that the mmsc is filled in with proper information, I have an X Fold, im using on Tmobile in the US and it works, I can send mms in the stock app, not Google Messages (sad face), anyone needs help... im your guy
Ah so it is the issue regarding third party messaging apps. I noticed it does work with the default messaging app but not with Google messaging. Man that sucks!
This being my first Vivo device, curious if these can be bootloader unlocked and rooted?
I do see the oem unlock option in developer options.
Be sweet if this device gets some good support on xda

Vivo and unlocked bootloader.... hum...
Maybe because we have Chinese version, and someone need to go on specific dedicated thread on Chinese native language !
 
So, I have figured something out, and maybe we can brainstorm to fix this. So I can use Pulse SMS to send MMS messages, however when I receive them, the phone gives me a error that says : Modify the Default Information. and then resets to the stock messages app and then get the message. How can I prevent that. So I need to ADB and change some permissions or remove the stock app entirely...???

Help guys I'm on Verizon and can't send or recieve any mms on stock app or textra. Regular sms does work fine. I'm frustrated may have to sell this phone as it won't connect to 5g in Arizona either. Can we download a voice mail app?

    Well, it seems that I have skipped the last update and got a more recent one. Now all apps can be added to the sidebar and can be put into floating windows, which is just great.
    i went to their forum, nagged about their OS and lacked of multiwindows features and finally they listened.

    I read that the Vivo X fold has an ir blaster but I can't find the remote control app anywhere on the phone. Anyone?
    There's no native app installed. I use Mi Remote from the playstore.

    Finally successfully root my X Fold.
    System Version is 15.7, here's my original boot.img without patch, hope this is useful to you guys.

    And this is the 15.7 OTA package link which I intercept by wireshark.

    And is there anyone know how to connect Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to Vivo X fold?
    Tried for a few hours, but didn't get any solution.

    Hey guys, two days ago I got my X fold delivered. Big thanks to Wonda Mobile for a 3 days delivery from Asia to UK!
    Interestingly enough I am getting notifications on I think everything with dark mode enabled! Have not deleted any of Vivo's apps and I have not disabled anything. The only place I don't see notifications, other than calls and smses is the always on display.
    I'm in London on Smarty (runs on the 3UK network) and have 5G everywhere I had it with my S21 Ultra (it is even better I think) getting more than 700mbs
    I have checked and all UK operators are running their 5G networs on bands supportd by the phone.
    The only major problem I have is the connection to my Tickwatch 3 pro ultra gps. The Wear OS app (from play store) will connect to the watch but not go through the setup proces after selecting my google account. Just spins and nothing... Tried with the Chinese Ware OS app but during setup it tells me that for decices otside of China I should use the one from the play store. Any help on this would be helpful.
    Regarding notifications I just went and enabled everything in app info notifications and permissions sections for the apps I need and also in the single permissions section.
    Ask me for specific things and I might be able to test them for you guys.
