Several issues coming up lately

Hi all,

I am a happy and satisfied user of the Fairphone 2. Well, I was until recently since several things came up:

  • With calling, people can frequently not hear me what looks like a microphone issue. It happens on more then 50% of the calls
  • I have a every bad connection most of the time including in my house and in cities where the reception should be fine. When I have connection its 3G at most
  • Purple sport are coming up in the middle of the screen, at places where you mostly touch. That shouldn’t be right?

In addition:

  • The Rubber backcover is breaking up: it seems that the rubber part of the back and the rubber part of the edge do not match geometrically:and they started to separate at a corner.

Background: The device is of July 2016 and I`m a Dutch living in Austria

My question: The mic issue seems like a clear warranty theme. Should I make a warranty claim for all of the above? or for one issue? Are there any tips or trics that can help me out with the above topics? I’me a little hesitant of sending it to Holland with the post…

You can try a couple of things on your own first:

If all the suggestions there fail, it will also direct you to a specifically worded message to Fairphone Support.

And then, there’s the very active Austrian Fairphoners group … :slight_smile:

I’ve tried to address the issues with the cover as mentioned on the forum, however I cannot submit the request since I do not have anything to fill in for the Module unique identifier (serial number) on the online form.

Well, I can’t remember that the IMEI was necessary. The support page for a broken regular cover reads as follows:

There is a hyperlink to the support request; and you don’t have to enter any IMEI or serial number as well.
