@annalowenstein Welcome to the forum.
If you want to keep using your FP2 and don’t find a replacement bottom module you could try and get it fixed.

Hi! I also live in the UK. Are you interested in buying a used (6 months) FP3?
I got mine just last March? because my old phone stopped working then after a few months it started working again. I’m currently on holiday but once I go back home in a week’s time I can send you photos of the box, case and phone?
