Hi @hiwelo, hi @AndrewDavies

It’s nice to see Faiphone keeps expanding, I just hope there are some new support members too. :wink:


Hi all of you

Im from Switzerland near Basel, and got my FP2 1 Year ago. I was very happy with it and really love to support this change for sustainable electronics.
I joined the community today because my fairphone doesn’t run since 3 Months now… Today i have been installing a new display, battery and bottom module - it still doesn’t work… The Phone seems to be working (because of the LED and the vibrations when i start it), but the screen stays dark. I tried different things, for example to install a newer version manually, but it didn’d help… So i really hope to find some help here, while slowly losing patience…

So best wishes and good luck to you guys :slight_smile:


Welcome to the forum Tabea!
Could you split the part of your post about your issues into a separate topic in the #fairphone2help category? Thanks.


Hey Paula

Thanks, yes i’ll do that.


hi there
I’m using a FP1 of the first batch. Also, this is my first ‘smartphone’ – so far I’m very happy with it. And it’s not only the phone. I also like the kind and fast support one gets here :slight_smile:


Welcome to the forum, @Sum! :slight_smile: I have granted you the FP First Edition Owner badge. :slight_smile:


hello there and thank you!


I think, at least one person is missing this badge. hinthint
See entry on Sep 16 above :wink:


Done. :slight_smile:


Thanks :slight_smile:


Hi there!

Recently got a second hand FP1 First Edition from a fellow Fairphone Community member. Use it as my secondary phone right now. Really liking it although the software is a bit old. Kinda thinking about using it as my primary phone (because of the Dual SIM functionallity.) Using also an iPhone SE right now.
Bought a Fairphone because I followed this company for a long time and want to be part of the movement!


Welcome the the forum, @gewoonrick! :slight_smile: I also granted you the FP1 First Editon Owner badge.

You should update your profile information, it still says “I do not own a Fairphone (yet)”. :wink:


Hi all! Just arrived to this community, finally I am ready to change my phone to a Fairphone, hoping it’d be a FP 3.

My name is Aurelio and I’m a Spaniard living in China (Spanish Teacher), while my SO is Chinese and lives in Spain with our 3 kids (I plan to be back ASAP!). This makes me think about the urgent need of leaving differences apart and aim for the common good. Speaking of which, I’m a big supporter of the so called movement (Economy for the Common Good), and one of your colleagues gave a talk on your business model at the NESI Forum (New Economy and Social Innovation), in the city I lived for almost 16 years, nice! Here the link :wink:
So, I’ve had one or two ideas and I’d like to get in touch here with people more remarkable than me, to learn from them and share.
Best wishes for all, and Common Good!



Welcome to the forum, @Aurelio_Lopez! :slight_smile:

I’ve had an iphone 4 for almost 8 years and I’m now ready for a Fairphone. Looking to buy a new one when they are available in the website again (or when the phone coop decide to sell them without a contract again!)


Welcome to the Forum Carlos.

If you’re in a hurry you can look at the list of #resellers.


Thanks Paula! If it is not available in the website by the end of the year I will do that, possibly through Ecosto


Good morning Fair Phoners (?)

I don’t have a fairphone yet, heck I don’t even have an Android.

No worries. I still can use a phone – although this is not my favorite communication device. Actually I like writing a lot, and on Discourse in particular. I run Petites Singularités, a non-profit in Brussels that uses Discourse in our daily work. We explore organizational practices to understand how free technologies can amplify the organization’s actions. We work with free software exclusively.

I want to engage Fairphone further into the free software and free hardware worlds…
