Hey. I’m looking for a fairphone 2 bottom module much like a lot of people it seems. I’m not really fussed about the microphone (mine broke pretty quickly). My main problem is the USB port now won’t connect so I struggle charging my phone. If anyone has a spare module with a working USB, but a busted microphone I’d happily settle for that.
Thanks in advance!

Where would it/they need to be shipped (country or city)?

Be aware, that cross-border shipment of batteries outside a phone is virtually impossible for individuals.
@Jack_Morelli Welcome to the forum.
There are posts about people who have repaired the module,
@JohnHughes (thanks again) send me two broken bottom Modules some days ago. This one has a defekt µUSB port.
After disassembling I took a picture with a microscope camera and found some solder cracks. Barely to see without magnification. Two cracks at the shield contacts that I am not too worry about, but also one at contact 5. I am sure that was a slack joint. Some serious force must be acted to the Port.
I will try to resolder the joints and hope the bottom module will be able to do its work…
Offering a bottom module, repaired and tested by myself yesterday.
@Volker for sending it to me for free.
Related to this nice gesture and to make this community very special, I give it to a community member for free.
There was a broken solder joint at the mirco usb port. Charging works fine again. Also testet the mircophone. Works like a new one.
Just send me a message.
Live long and with a Fairphone _\//

@anon9989719 but after reading those threads I don’t think I have the proficiency or equipment for repairing it myself. I really just need a replacement module if anyone has one.
If you don’t find one, you could try a mobile phone repair shop.
All the best.
I have allowed myself to edit the title to include your willingness to compromise when it comes to the microphone
This could increase your chances significantly.
