👼 The Fairphone Angels Program (Local support by community members) - Offers and questions

Hi @Stefan,

Be careful, August is the hottest period in Italy, temperature can go as high as 40 °C.

I don’t know if I’ll be in Florence because the two weeks around Ferragosto we (the Italians) use to go on holiday.

Anyway, let me know when you come. If we can’t meet I can support you in finding good places to eat, I’m black belt at food :grin:

Ciao,
Max

Hi All,
I have been a Fairphone 3 user for two years, and recently dropped my beloved Fairphone 3 in water (again) last week. I couldn’t find a #fairphoneangel in my area of Geneva / Ferney Voltaire to help me fix it, and so have ended up getting a Fairphone 4 today.

If the Fairphone Angel programme is still going, I would like to register as a Fairphone Angel to in my area, and if anyone can help fix my Fairphone 3 as my emergency backup I would be very grateful. I am also frequently in London. Et oui, je parle aussi courrament français. Ich spreche auch deutsch.

Thanks. Merci. Danke.

Hi DBovey,
Did you manage to register as a Fairphone Angel? And do you have a Fairphone 3 you could help me with. I live in Geneva/Ferney Voltaire.
Thanks
Thammy

Hi Thammy and welcome to the forum and no doubt a premature welcome to being an FPA in Geneva.

All the best.

Regarding the FP3 water damage ~ have you read and posted a request for help ‘there’.

Maybe create a new topic and provide details of the type of water length of submersion and what you did.

Hi Amoun,
Thanks for the quick response. Not sure where ‘there’ is - on the #waterdamage wiki?

Apologies ~ poor directions. Just start a new topic giving details.

There is a guide

Thanks for offering to join the FP Angels program!
Would you prefer to have Ferney Voltaire or Geneva as your angels spot in the map (and the angels group will also be named after the “home town”)?
BR,
Volker

I just checked the distance between both places and – given it is just 7-8 kilometres – would strongly suggest to label the heaven GENEVA.

Hello. I would like to become a Fairphone Angel for the Prague area (Czechia). I hope this could inspire more people from my country to try Fairphone out.

Thank you very much for volunteering as a new Angel in Prague!
I’ve added you to the Angels group, created a new Angels “Heaven” for Prague and sent you pm regarding the first steps into the Angels area. As soon as the Prague/Praha Angels e-mails are configured I’ll inform you.
So stay tuned and keep asking in case of any questions!

Hello,
When I just had issues with my Fairphone 3 and the forum hadn’t any results yet, I was thinking it’d be really great if there had been an Angel (and big place like Brussels should have one).

I’m not super active in the forum but I guess that’s not a major deal per se? Fairphone has been my first-ever smartphone and I’ve been showing the concept & principle to many people I met and asked about the phone. I figured, why not also support folks that already have one when they’re in need of help. So hereby I’d like to volunteer as Angel in Brussels - happy to hear about any follow-up steps if you think it’s a good fit.

Dear @Archangels,

I’m both happy and sorry to announce you that due to my move to Paris in the end of August, you’ll have to close the Montpellier heaven, unless there would be someone else applying for it…

But I will happily continue to be an Angel in the French capital, from September onwards!

Sorry that Montpelier will have to be closed down, but great that you’ll stay as angel in Paris! :+1:
I’m planning to do the organizational change end of August.

Hi Juhani, I am a Finnish FairPhone owner based in the UK. I visit Helsinki regularly. Let me know if you need any help.

You may want to start a topic in #participate:local to regroup the Finnish Fairphoners, that we could add to the #addressbook, rather than discussing here :wink:
