No one has helped us here in India. We are not sure which version will work with 3G networks here, D910a or D910i ?
plz clarify that and I will place an order !
The 512MB is not an issue with this phone. It's super fast to open all aplications, even heavy games, and doesn't freeze like some Sansung that I had.
I forgot to write in my last post, don't expect BLU products to give VIVO ROM software to any one, no company does. But we have sucessufully got acess to VIVO ROM using CWM and will be sharing next week on XDA.
To all of you who wants to root their Vivo please google it. There is a lot of information and how to in XDA-developers forum. Me and others can help you there.
AnonD-76522, 20 Oct 2012All My conversation e-mails with BLU company:
I sent BLU this email:
1- Is there any suit ... moreI think u are not really understanding the 'bang for the buck' u are getting here. The wrong claim of 1 GB RAM and the other one about 4GB ROM is more likely to be the work of an overexcited young employee of the company given charge of the website. I know it's uncalled for, but it's bad checks and not bad intention. Remember it's a small and very young company, and don't expect superhuman things, We all make errors. I know a company shouldn't, especially on its website, but I am willing to forgive them.
For me even 1 GB ROM is more than enough. RAM issue worried me more, but I have checked a lot, many many 512 MB android phones with only a single core processors clocked at 1 GHz have been runaway succsses. So I am not overly worried, Would be great if it were 1GB but I can live with 512 at this price
I am far more worried about build quality, coz that is the thing where small companies save on money. We all know where processors and critical hardware is made, and no phone company manufactures then inhouse. Same goes for touchscreens. Those things I am not worried about.
I still think it's an awsome phone to buy at 250 bucks. The combo of dual core and dual sim with SUPERAMOLED 4.3 did me in !
I also wish they launch a Windows Phone 8 version of Blu vivo 4.3 soon ! That would be just mind blowing at 300 bucks !
Richard P., 13 Oct 2012Alex, The volume on mine works prefect. If this is still a problem on your mobile try to re... moreHi, I have tried everything. All tools / app did not working. Also I have no root rights to schange some android settings directly. My location is Germany, retourning the phone to US shop + other costs are same as a total damage. I got a service request answer direct from blu "It is not possible to change mic volume". So I must live eith it until I found out to root the system.
blu fanatic, 20 Oct 2012I wish BLU would upgrade vivo to jelly bean.....All My conversation e-mails with BLU company:
I sent BLU this email:
1- Is there any suit for this cell phone?
2- where can I upgrade cell phone ROM?
3- is there ROM to upgrade over windows 7?
and Blu answered me:
This to inform you that we don’t have any suit or software update for this phone
then I replied them:
Send me the original ROM which installed on it, because if any installed app or any virus cause damage in the ROM software, I will throw the cell phone in the garbage!!!
and they answered:
We are not allow to give out this type of information directly to the customer, in this case please contact your distributor for any software or warranty purpose
then I replied:
I'm highly disappointed
the RAM is 512MB not 1GB
and the ROM is 1GB not 4GB (your website indicate 4GB for internal memory)
How is that!!! is it misleading specifications!!!
in addition you don't have any suit or software update for this phone!!!!
and they answered:
We Apologizes for the inconvenience , apparently this is an error on the web site , we will fixed it shortly
Can we call this fake company and fraud!!!!??

How is your phone is rooted!!! my Blu vivo 4.3 in not rooted!!!
Is it rooted originally by BLU or you used special apps?
I was seriously considering to order this phone but I'm already highly disappointed.
The RAM is 512MB not 1GB,
The ROM is 1GB not 4GB (seems like manufacturer fraud to me, cos on BLU website it says 4GB of internal memory).
I wouldn't have minded the other issues like microphone volume etc. but BLU gave this device misleading specs from the beginning.
DarthAzius, 18 Oct 2012Hey guys...does this phone have only two home screens? Or can more home screens be added?Yes, you can have as many as you like.
