"And then I saw they had a Fairphone..."

No, the second one was Northengland

Correction - the Fairphone user in Leamington is involved with Community Energy Warwickshire, not LETS. There is a Phone Co-op account holder in the LETS circle but, in her own words, “I haven’t ventured into Fairphone territory yet.”

…and then I saw…
…that Primus van Quack had a Fairfon in LTB 449, page 48… :laughing:

I’m in a packed tram right now and there is at least one other Fairphoner in here. I wonder where they are all going… :wink:

I just met a Fairphoner in my GP’s waiting room. His FP2 was equipped with a (cracked) transparent slim case, so I told him he can get an opaque slim case for free. We didn’t have a long time to chat (an older lady complained I was too loud :blush: ), but he got to tell me of two other Fairphoners amongst friends & family. Of course, I had to tell him of our quarterly Stammtisch meetups in Aachen and our upcoming movie showing.

He was called upon before me, so I’m glad I was shameless enough to push my Fairphone card (just a Fairphone sticker with my name & email address handwritten on its back) on him in time. :smiley:

Again, I spotted a FP in the train, but this time very far away from Amsterdam ;). This morning I sat in the train from Lyon to Marseille next to a Frenchman with a Fairphone! We had a very short conversation about it as he was clearly busy but it was a nice coincidence to see a Fairphone so far from home :).

Yesterday I was at the Klimakirtag in Vienna with Greta Thunberg and saw one Fairphone and one Shiftphone in the crowd.

I see Fairphones all the time because I only befriend people, who have a Fairphone… Just kidding, of course. :wink: Indeed, I took a discipleship course with two friends, who both own a Fairphone 2, but one of the other course participants also had a FP2. So from ~20 participants 4 in total had a Fairphone (20%). Nice average. :grin:

I started this topic over 4 years ago and it’s very nice to read through the stories. Hope there will be many more, now with all three FPs. (thanks @urs_lesse for opening it again)

A friend sent me a picture the other day and wrote: “Got a package from the Netherlands”. The picture showed the package of the FP3.
I replied to him and asked why he has chosen a Fairphone and he mentioned that he remembered me talking about it. He needed a new company phone and so he ordered the FP3. His boss by the way was happy that it was a cheap buy compared to others.

… and then all of a sudden you get a first-ever Telegram message from a neighbour across the yard who asks you if you could give any advice, he’s considering buying a Fairphone 3. He read not just the sign of the times, but also the sign(s) opposite to his window.

Two days later he reports he’s bought and already received an FP3 from Vireo. :slight_smile:
