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?

    Hey guys, so I just purchased the Vivo X fold, and I'm wondering which network in the US is the best for this phone. I'm looking to either go T-mobile or AT&T (unless there is a better one) but can't seem to find which one would have better 5G/4G coverage. I'm in a big city (Houston) so coverage itself is not a problem, but trying to figure out which one has the most used bands between the two.

    Frequencies by Provider in USA :
