I’m coming to Canada in september this year and I heard that the Fairphone doesn’t match well with the providers available in Canada. Can someone tell me what provider is compatible with a Fairphone 3, so I can use internet and make phonecalls?
Thanks a lot!
Hi Everyone. I am moving from Europe to Québec at the end of the month. I have a FP3+ (which I love) and I am bringing it with me. Do you have any tips for me? Can I keep my Android OS or do I absolutely have to change it? I’d like to change as few things as I can on the phone if possible. Any pointer you can share would be most appreciated.
I am not going to second guess FairPhone’s business policy.
My FP3 functions and does way more than I need from a phone. I’ll probablly keep it until it dies, e/OS or FP stops providing software upgrades for it or the 4G network shuts down. what ever is fatal. Then I’ll decide which Google free route i’ll take.
Hi everyone, I’m considering selling my FP4 if I can find any takers in Vancouver (don’t worry, I’m not leaving the FP community). I bought it from Clove Technology 14 months ago. It’s the 256GB + 8GB RAM model in Grey. Comes with a grey case and two privacy screen protectors (one already installed and one spare). Please let me know if you’re interested!
I’m retiring my Fairphone 3+ due to the battery running out of life. It has served me well for the past 4 years.
I’m not entirely sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I’m hoping to sell it to the community so that others will find the parts useful. It has all the parts of the original Fairphone 3 plus the top/back camera+ modules, minus the battery (which I’m disposing of responsibly). I’m based in Vancouver, Canada. Please message me privately if you’re interested
You might want to duplicate your ad to this category: Offer - Fairphone Community Forum (I’d definitely recommend to mention Canada in the ad title then). Ideally, you could then just leave a link to that new ad from here, too.
And sooner or later others might bring this up as well, so I’ll mention right away that dealers like vireo.de ship Fairphones overseas (from Europe), they might ship a battery, too – anyone interested might want to ask them (as batteries are harder to ship) at email@example.com.
(To others: I did check clove.co.uk as well, but apparently they do not stock FP3 batterries right now.)
Thank you for the reply @urs_lesse. I’ll copy the post over to that category.
Re: battery, I did look into that (vireo.de was the reseller I used in the first place) but they don’t ship batteries alone as far as I can tell (I think there’s something in EU regulations that prevent shipment of Lithium-Ion batteries).
The regulations for shipping batteries are a bit silly sometimes. It’s often easier to ship a whole phone (including battery). It might be easiest to ship batteries through a reshipper that supports batteries, though that’ll be expensive.
