You might have been right. Right now the display is shown as Sold Out again.
That was to be expected. Let’s hope it was people in need of a display who bought them up, not resellers who will sell them on ebay for twice the price.
They were online because of a mistake on our end - we are figuring out how this happened. But it wasn’t a conscious decision. Apologies for the mishap!
Any of you here on this thread who are looking for a FP1 display or motherboard - please get in touch with support so we can see what we can do to help you!
Will those, who ordered something, will be informed? Will their whole order be canceled so that they have to place a new order or will they just receive the money back for the parts that can’t be shipped? (In case of orders with mixed availability.)
We will make sure to check all orders which have either a FP1 display or motherboard/PCB in them, in order to make sure all goes as planned.
Luckily it is not a big amount. We will simply ship the orders, unless we find a reason not to.
When the Fairphone concept appeared, I was really happy to subscribe to it by buying a the Fairphone 1 to my niece.
But now that her screen glass is broken, I’m really sad to discover the Fairphone Roadmap includes the possibility of not being able to have it repaired !!!
Display assembly replacement
Touch and LCD panel, glass & front screen - Out of Stock
How can we call “Fair” that marketing choice ?!
Help me regain trust in the Fairphone spirit, by telling us when this “Out of Stock” strategy for the Fairphone 1, will only be a sad memory.
@dieudo, I’ve moved your post here, as there’s been a discussion about the issues you mentioned in this topic.
Fairphone themselves explained some of the issues that they’ve faced in sourcing spare parts here:
Another recent comment from Fairphone support suggests getting in touch to see whether a solution can be found on an individual basis, you may want to follow up on that:
A post was split to a new topic: FP1 Display with minor scratches
Are the FP1 batteries out of stock? I can order a camera with my browser, but no battery. The price is shown, but not the buy button.
I have the same problem with the battery. I need it!!
also I cannot buy a new battery for my FP1. I was only able to make a “Subscription added successfully” with my e-mail for this piece.
Hi, is it possible to be put on a waiting list and/or be informed when FP1 displays would be available again? I looked on the website but didn’t find how to subscribe. Thanks
Unfortunately there will not be any more new FP1 displays Your only chance is to find a used one in the forum’s marketplace section.
I urgently need a new battery for a FP1. The website seems to say that they are out of stock. Can this be true?
Now it says sold out. I hope there will be new batteries available at a point?
I also urgently need a new FP1 battery ! I should have bought 2 when I bought my current one a year and a half ago. I really hope they are going to be in stock soon ! It would be great if we could have a date or pre-order them…
I also really need a new fp1 battery - any idea when they will be back in stock?
According to Fairphone support, no FP1 spare parts will be produced again - not even batteries.
I will therefore close this thread. A list of FP1 spare parts that are still in stock can be found here.
