    Anyone able to get Gboard to work on the z flip 3? When I go into settings, only the samsung keyboard is listed. Anyone have a workaround to get this to work?

    Could you please share a screenshot of your keyboard list and default? For example, I'm using Microsoft SwiftKey, but Gboard is one of my options. I just don't have it as my default keyboard app right now.

    That's the issue, Gboard is not even listed so you can choose it, only Samsung keyboard.

    Search for it in the Play Store and see which options you get (Install/Open/Enable ...)

    That's one thing I'll have to get used to, there's so many more options on a Samsung phone for things than a pixel. And I have no idea if Samsung's versions are better than Google's or not. This should be interesting lol.

    On a side note, can I set my unlocked Z Flip 3 up over wi-fi without a sim card in it? That's how I usually do it to keep my old phone working so I won't miss calls, and keep the new phone setup from being interrupted, but I know Samsung's have a Samsung account I guess I need to setup as well as my Google account? Plus I don't know if they'll update without a sim in them?

    Yeah you'll have teast what works better for you as you now have Google and Samsung options .

    Yes without sim you can do set-up and updates for software and apps will update without sim and just wifi.

    Definitely make a Samsung account that it can sync things not just Google doing basic syncing

    Yes, it's installed. I've done web searches and it seems it's a z flip issue.
