I just recently bought a FP5, a charger, a case and a screen protector.
The screen protector did not work well, but I am sure I cannot return it (I am a very humble being).
But the case I want to return, but the support is ignoring my request.
If this goes on, I will have to sue fairphone. What should I do?
Relax, it’ll work out in the end, you are absolutely within the normal response time. Please read contactsupport, they will come back to you, but unfortunately most of the times not within a few hours but rather within a few days.
In the end it’s even likely you won’t have to send the case back as others have reported here already:
But they’ll tell you how to proceed - in a few days.
Yeah, I’ll wait. I mean - I would not really ever sue fairphone. I was just wondering because there was not even ashort quick reply and so I went a little bit nervous. The worst that might happen in the end is that I would have to sell it for half the price privately or keep it as a spare part. So yeah, a little inconvenience, but I wouldn’t have thought that fairphone support proceeding was so slow. After all, if fairphone is messing up so that I cannot meet return deadlines it is their duty to increase the return timeframe I guess?
Support answered my request. They said I do not need to return the case because it would be a bad carbon footprint and can keep it while still getting a refund. Man, I feel a bit ashamed now. :-o Fairphone FTW! <3
