Update went smoothly.

The same for me here in Bavaria Germany with Deutsche Telekom.

I’m still waiting, too. :frowning: Deutsche Telekom i really hope it will arrive today.
Edit: I now installed the Update with a Vodafone SIM. Telekom seems to be blocked at the moment.

We’ll always be behind the Pixel. They are at the source of the software and likely have a bigger team too.


Installed, works fine.

Network: Tre (Sweden)
Carrier: WiFog

Sorry, last OTA Update was in November. I’m not able to download wether the December nor the January update. Don’t think it will be regulated by my provider, they don’t sell phones, just SIM. It’s HoT in Austria.

Hey all,
the update should be available without restriction, so I reset the configuration because I understand there might have been a glitch (as some of you reported they could not download the update).

Let me know if you still cannot find the update from now on, and thank you for the feedback!


Hello @FrancescoSalvatore , thanks for following it up. I had no issues with any updates so far (Plus, Poland), but writing to let you know that the fairphone page listing all the updates is currently unavailable


Sorry, I have to tell you, that the update is not available without restrictions. Only if I put out the SIM card, the phone is able to get the update. Putting in the SIM card again, update is not available. This is a workaround if you not using eSIM.
Therefore I´m disappointed about these update policy.

I got it now, awesome! :tada:


It might take some time for the updater app to refresh the cache.
I would suggest you to reboot the device and try again, it should be already available without restrictions from at least this morning.

Update installed. No problems. 5G in stable condition. In addition, after shutdown the phone I loaded up my accu to 100% just to have a full basis for the power drain value check. New feature with the pocket mode is obviously perfect for avoiding uncontrolled display actions.
Thank you, that all who were concerned did finally a good job.

I see a slight glitch with pocket mode. I use a soft key definition with Nova launcher to switch off my screen (so as to not have to press the physical power button). In pocket mode, screen goes dark for a short moment, and then lits up again, though locked. Pocket mode off, screen does dark and stays dark (as intended)

Thank you, just got this update without SIM card inside. Let’s see what will happen by the next update. :wink:

Got the update last night. Everything seems ok so far. Typing this from the desktop mode on my fairphone. It works with one of my usb-c docks but not my older other one. I’ll double check the old one works with my laptop still otherwise I’m loving it!
