My FP1: three years and counting!

@Stefan Do we get the 3 years batch ;-)?
And your FP1, did you got an other one after yours got lost in the train?

Mine turned three in July, too. Still squeezing 9 days out of the first and the second battery every now and then :smiley: Would like the badge, too. Thanks! :slight_smile:

I think we should make a “4 years of Fairphone 1” profile title available by now. I think there are many of us who already qualify (I will 23 July) :slight_smile:

I’ve been qualifying for almost half a year (if we don’t count the two months where I didn’t have a FP1). :wink:

@mods: When you"re at it anyway, you might also want to prepare the “3 years of FP2” badge or profile title. Won’t be too long till it’ll be needed.

Unfortunately us mods cannot configure this. We need to ask @Monica.Ciovica with her admin-superpowers. :female_detective:

I notice that some Fairphoners tend to overestimate how long they have got their Fairphone (I always memorize it like this: FP1 from christmas 2013/14, FP2 from christmas 2015/16). So I’d hold back the FP2 title until 3 years have actually elapsed (for the earliest owners).

I remember:

  • FP1: Beginning of 2014 (my FP1 arrived in the first week of January 2014)
  • FP2: Beginning of 2016

First FP2s were delivered in November (maybe even October) 2015 iirc, so yes, there’s still some time.
I got mine early January 2016.

Well, before we keep speculating based on our aging memories, here’s a forum reply by Douwe from 21 December 2015 on FP2 delivery:

Bas’ 30 December 2013 blog (scroll way down to Original post of 30 December) suggests a very limited number of FP1s might have reached their owners (probably all Dutch) by New Years Eve 2013 (I still think a Dutch Fairphoner reported having received his on 25 December):

Just saw - my FP1 has been delivered Septembe 2014. Still in use, still on first battery. But usage gets scarce now that my employer granted me an iPhone SE and I tend to not switch on my phones anyway. So the most sustainable decision has been not to upgrade to a FP2.
Looking forward to a 4-year-badge!

Really? There are already more than 60 badges!
Even the 3-years one is only applied to 18 users (which I guess is really not realistic).
I kind of understand all those badges, that are applied automatically for contributing to the forum or FP etc. But those badges where you have to say “Hey, I want one!” are a bit beyond to me.
But that’s just my approach of course.

Now I can apply! I have a FP1U, which I got from a friend in July 2015. Looking forward to use it at least one more year!

OK, nevermind my premature response :angel: Thanks! It’s both a badge and a title option now. :+1:
