my FP1 USB port broke down, so I cannot charge the phone anymore. Unfortunately, there are still pictures on the phone I would like to retrieve :,-(
So I was wondering if anyone has a spare part (a FP1 top module for instance…?) I could replace it with?
Or any other ideas of how to fix this problem? Thanks!
thanks for your reply, I’ll into whether there is an angel nearby!
I don’t want to continue using it, as it was in general getting old… but I would say that even for just retrieving the photo’s I would need the new USB port? Or would there be another way to just retrieve the data?
If nothing else works out, you don’t need to charge the phone, luckily, but only the battery, which is removable .
There are universal smartphone battery chargers .
You just need to find one fitting the dimensions and the contact placement of the Fairphone 1 battery (roughly, they are called “universal” for a reason).
