Thank you very much for your input, everyone. Still haven’t decided for a solution, but your thoughts are very welcome.
Well yes, the prices on eBay do seem rather OK, I guess. Are you sure, ‘inflict’ is the word you were looking for. That does sound rather harsh. Then again, I wasn’t very convinced by the FP2, too
Thanks for sharing. That’s a plus for passing the device on to my wife.
Well yes, that’s what I probably would recommend everyone nowadays. I am not a big fan of pouches, though, since to do add complexity to a supposedly really simple task I perform a dozen times a day. With other phones I did have good experiences with bumpers. Unfortunately, there are hardly any of those around for the FP2. Just stumbled on the bumper cases offered by shapeways (to be found via your favorite search engine). These do seem nice. Has anyone had any experience with those?
Yeah, well, In my spare time I like those, too. On the job it is not really an option for me. Plus, I don’t really see why I should adapt my appearance to my phone. My keys, wallet and competing devices do not really demand that much devotion.
Damn, what did I do there?
Thank you. I guess that is another plus for passing it on.
I did about everything I could. Tickets, e-mails, phone calls. Also, I really tried to be supportive and reduce their workload by searching online, trying different solutions in advance and telling them in my inquiries. Got ignored most of the time. Response time was forever and I hardly got any applicable solution. Answers usually were prefabricated text blocks, from time to time completely ignoring what I had sent before. I do not really want to start a discussion here. In my experience, Fairphone support is just a really sad joke. Now that I think of it, I get so frustrated that just getting rid of the device does regain a lot of appeal
OK, I can see the words “No joke” up there, but seriously: You have got to be kidding me
Pics or it didn’t happen! Now I want that, too. Besides becoming a cowboy, of course. Thanks for making my day
Yepp, most people seem to think about those lines. It is probably what I would recommend nowadays, too.
Thanks for the great answers so far!
