Please note, when internet access and emails fail with Opera Max, the VPN is still running, and restarting it doesn't fix the problem.

RE: Opera Max not workingOpera Max
Thanks, so are you saying Samsung have made it so that Opera Max can't successfully autostart?
My phone is rooted - so what do you suggest?
I sent a bug report to opera via the option in the app - but have had no response - is there any other way?
I'm using Samsung S4 because it does everything I want it to (unlike iphone and I seriously comopared / considered that option) and it didn't cost too much to buy (about £100 with guarantee). The main reason however, is because I can easily and cheaply replace the battery, which is essential for me since I expect to keep it for 5 years - I don't believe in the consumer throw-away society. I also can't afford, and have no desire to replace technology every year or two especially given the impact of that on the environment. If I had money to spare I'd rather give it away to charities or others is need. I'm aware of no other phone that offers this mix - low price (for an older model), good hardware, replaceable battery, reasonable battery life and longevity. It's just a pity that Samsung lock so much down stopping some useful Android functionality from working correctly - so this is certainly not about brand loyalty - Samsung don't deserve that.
RE: Using Opera Max for Mobile Data only (not wi-fi)Opera Max
Thanks - I didn't have to touch the settings before I enabled VIP mode, so hadn't realised this setting was there!
Opera Max not workingOpera Max
On a Samsung Galaxy S4 (lollipop) I have Opera Max installed and set up in VIP mode. It was working fine until I converted to VIP mode, but twice now I've had a problem where emails and web pages are not loading correctly and an app to get my three mobile balance failing to login with the Opera Max VPN active. I also then find that google searches fail. As soon as I switch off the VPN everything works correctly (makes no difference if this is using wi-fi or mobile data).
Has anyone else observed problems with the VPN for opera max not serving web pages and e-mails correctly and failing on google searches? Any advice how to resolve this?
I sent a fault report to Opera via the app, but have had no reply at all.
How to autorestart Opera MaxOpera Max
I'm using Opera Max with the new VIP feature.
However, when my Samsung Galaxy S4 is restarted, the VPN is disabled. I have to manually click on the "start saving" button, which sort of defeats the purposes of the VIP mode.
Is there a setting somewhere so that the Opera Max VPN is automatically restarted?
