After many months of waiting I recently received my Fairphone 2. Now the ownership message that is displayed on the lock-screen shows that the device is apparently in use for more than 5 months. How is this possible? Did I receive a second hand phone when I payed for a new one?
I am so glad I can finally join the Fairphone community !
For the record, I tried a research but couldn’t find any answer so here is my story. And forgive me if the answer is out there. <3
I bought a second hand Fairphone 2 yesterday. I am very (very very) happy about it and didn’t face any issue (despite 1 or 2 random reboot ). The previous owner told me she received the phone in january (she was an early buyer with an august invoice) and in fact the phone does not even show any of the blue marks on the inside (it’s just written “one of the first” and a number). So I do believe her.
But, the screen showing the ownership shows “5 months 2 weeks 6 days”. First of all I thought it was weird, since we’re not in june, but hey, who really cares.
And then I wandered if there is any way to reset this info ? Does anyone know if we can reset it ?
Of course, I already made a hard reset of the phone. But since it is supposed to come from the motherboard, it didn’t change anything.
Again it does not really bother me, I can live with that. But if there is a way, I’ll be a little bit more pleased .
