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

Thanks @Atlantian for offering to participate as Fairphone Angel and welcome as a new Fairphone Angel!
I’ve added you to the according groups and started the “onboarding process”.
I’ve sent you a pm with more details.

Does anybody know how many angels are watching over Fairphone users? :slight_smile:

The list at 👼 The Fairphone Angels Program and Map (Local support by community members) shows all heavens and how many angels they have.

Sorry for the delayed response. Both Canadian sites are now visible on the angels map:

Site Montreal is now up and running.

If I recall it correctly, this has – at least in the map – increased the visibility of :canada: Canadian Fairphone Angels a great deal. I seem to remember it took really a lot of zooming in before spotting the Ottawa blue circle while now the two are shown literally at first sight :slight_smile:

If you need more Angels in Berlin, Germany, I offer my help as well.

I am an active maintainer of a number of Open Source projects (including projects for Android as well) and recently got a Fairphone 4. Eventhough the Fairphone as a “daily driver” is quite new to me I already know Fairphone and Android in general for many years.

I’m a native German speaker but also fluent in English.

Berlin (a.k.a. the Fairphone world capital in terms of number of users :wink: ) is probably the one Angel heaven that would benefit most from more Angels :slight_smile: Great Angel @schmulschubiak will surely welcome you :+1:

I wanted to ask of there are any fairphone angels that will be travelling through Hawaii any time soon? haha
My FP3 completely died a few days ago after sustaining rain water damage a month prior, and I want to try and repair it. I’m trying to figure out what to do about my phone right now.

Hiya,

I would like to offer my services as a Fairphone Angel for Newcastle, UK.

I currently run my own IT Consulting company focusing on environmentally low impact IT solutions.

I am a member of the local Green Party and an advocate for Right to Repair.

I’d like to use my knowledge in order to help push towards more sustainability via this program.

I haven’t been hugely forum active recently, however I’d like that to change and to promote change in the local North East of England area.

Any questions regarding my IT background I am happy to answer =)

Hello!
I live in Madrid and I´d like to become a fairphone angel.
There are no angels in the area, so maybe good to start somewhere.
My phone is an FP3+ and have a little experience with SW and HW in general, but not much specifically for phones or the FP.
I speak English, Spanish and German, and live very close to a metro station not too far from the center. I also own a Torx T5 screwdriver :slight_smile:
Best regards, Stefan
