Hello Bro
Good to read your message

Is the wondamobile.com trust website to buy?

I was searching and googling but then came to their link of the CEO/managers, it seems to be a fake thing, that's why I'm asking your opinion, please:

1- it is supposed a phone shopping website in HK but the directors are ladies' fashion designers' job titles!!
2- The CEO is David miller and his photo is a photo of a girl!!
3- Directors' names are not HK names, it is a western names!!
4- Our mission, our story...etc, are all non-logic and no sense articles, I translated and it's all no sense!!

Anyone who can see the link below of wondamobiles CEO and board of directors will notice something weird.

Anyone can help? Thanks.

Not sure what this is about but I've used them for years with absolutely no issues. They are a trusted business. The only issues I have had have been FedEx!

Just a quick one, did you get your x fold 3 days after purchase from wonda? My fold 3 literally died yesterday and I need a new phone ASAP. The 2-3 working day processing time and 7-10 delivery time was what stopped me from checking out yesterday. I'm also in the uk.
I feel your issue, but the phone is worth waiting for, just think of a phone that the whole world doesn't have yet, it's a unique unit.

Nice!

What phone did you have before and have you ever used any of the galaxy fold phones?
I am currently having galaxy fold 2 and I am just wondering if I am going to miss important stuff I got used to use with this phone.

From 0 to 10 scale how much satisfied are you with Vivo X fold?
Me 2, trying to convince myself to upgrade my ZF2 to vivo fold, only afraid of the chinese rom software, afraid to have difficulty moving from Samsung to vivo.

Hello Guys. Any one having issues with synced contacts from Google? I recive a message or call its does not show name only number even if it is saved with name.
Check to make sure that contacts in phone is set to display your Google contacts if it still doesn't work try deleting your Google account and add again under settings > account sync.

I transferred to a Vivo X Fold from a Huawei phone doesn't have much issue except for WhatsApp because Huawei doesn't have the function of backup to Google. Apart from the fact that it has some Chinese apps that you may not use but after installing Playstore it works just like any other phone.

    Yes, I made the order on 27th and it was here on the 30th but have in mind that there is going to be some holiday there and things will take a while. There was a warning on Wonda's web site...

    Thanks for coming back to me so quickly, I really appreciate it. I took the plunge and bought the blue 512gb just now! Do they ship by DHL or Fedex? And there's no customs to pay right?

    Thanks again!
    Hi

    They use FedEx,

    Hi, they use FedEx, all duty tax are paid upon checkout, no extra payment on delivery.

    This is as they stated on their website clearly.

    I recommend everyone to use PayPal in case they are not comfortable buying from a new sellers, you will have 180days buyer protection.

    Also as soon you receive the phone, try to register it with vivo.com immediately by S/N or IMEI, so you know it's original and authentic vivo brand, not just a first class copy phone.

    You can check the S/N immediately front of FedEx guy, if it's not original, then don't accept the shipment, and ask them to return it to HK.

    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.

    What needs to happen in order to get an official forum? Is it time? Post interest? World domination?

    Folks, any solution to enable google location history without rooting? I saw a post here, about using a magisk module. But magisk requires root.

    Thanks all

    Would appreciate a redacted list of bloatware from above, which is safe to remove. I already tried to remove some, which I was sure about - some work, some don't:

    PD2178:/ $ pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.vivo.abe
