Welcome! Introduce yourself here!

Hi Paula, indeed this is meeting version 2.0. :slight_smile:

I had a talk with Douwe today, and we decided to publicly announce the change. As for the role description, that is something to be edited, but it’s still a bit of a ‘work in progress’. The Community will definitely not be a sub-task, but an equal responsibility together with Social media.


I am Georg from Sweden.
Concerned about environment, justice and how they interact. As such, the Fairphone idea rings well to me, feels like something all production should strive towards.
Also interested in open source; use Linux at home and for work.

I received my Fairphone2 a couple of days ago, and is happy with it.


Hi @Lisa_Stewart,
I just got mine and it took a bit more than a month. I think it could depend on the stock at Fairphone. I got a confirmation email where it said when the phone were expected to ship, and it shipped a bit earlier.

Hi @ScientiaFelis and welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

Ah, yes, Monica who runs the official accounts. I didn’t make that connection.

I was asking for any private account to follow, too. But managing the official ones could take too much time for that, no? :smiley:

Hi @nw_16th,
Have you looked into Fairphones’ own Fairphone OPEN OS. I do not know the differences between Lineage, Copperhead and Fairphone Open in terms of security and privacy. If it’s similar it could be an easy way of having an open source system on your phone.

A bit more info here: https://code.fairphone.com/projects/fp-osos/index.html

Also it would be interesting to know what you or someone else finds out about that.

For reference: Other Open Source OSes. This time: CopperheadOS

Welcome to the forum, @nw_16th :slight_smile:

I’d like to go with lineage OS, copperhead has high specs and I don’t think it will be supported in the near future.

Hi Jonas, welcome here!

You could still additionally introduce you here. :slight_smile:
We always like Fairphone interested people, and to read about their intentions for Fairphone products, and maybe you find in some topic in this forum other reasons that become important for you later on.

Sure, sorry ^___^ I’m an illustrator and graphic designer from Germany, I’ve been following Fairphone from FP1 but always got second hand phones from my brother and also never really had the money to invest in a Fairphone 2. Right now I’m caught between getting a FP2 second hand and waiting for a possible FP3 since the phone I’m using atm is developing quite a few quirks but is still usable so I’m hesitant to just abandon it.

I’m a big fan of the Fairphone philosphy and I’ve been reading posts on topics about trying to get conflict-free materials and the workplace situation in China (of the FP1, I think) etc with interest in the past.

So keep up the good work! :slight_smile:


Many people are in this situation. You might be interested in this topic:

Hi, FairPhoners _o/

I’m Epy, freshly subscribed here, not already a FP owner but it is seriously considered for a few reasons I’ll explain
I’m a FOSS enthousiast (not sure of this term, english is not my native language) I would say FOSSH thought to include hardware too ^_^.

I’m also careful where I put my data and prefer to own it fully, even if it has some drawbacks or comfort disavantages.

I know FairPhone goal is not about open source software nor hardware but the fair trade hardware is also important to me :slight_smile: And there is a Opensource version of the OS, yay !

I’m really not happy with my current phone I had for free from family (Nokia 650) but I was forced to change because my N9 loses text messages when it contains one of these dumb new emojis… (text smileys were standards ! :cry: )

Not losing friends and family was “a little” more important than an old phone … I’m still using it for some apps, fully offline :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m mistrusftful from Android and iOS (not to mention WinPhone OS …) but the choice is thin those days … :frowning:
I hoped to use SailfishOS (almost FOSS and out of big data companies) on a recent phone but it doesn’t seems ready to use daily on FP2 from what I read, maybe I’m wrong ? And there is not many other hardware options
Won’t talk about other SFOS options here but I’m studying them too

I was considering buying an FP2 and flashing LineageOS with microG, I’m confident I won’t need much Play store Apps, so that’s not a real problem. I will find what I need on Fdroid

And then, here I am :slight_smile: Already with a daily-usage question I’ll ask in another topic I think (so much to read here !)

Thanks for this community :slight_smile:

Hallo Fairphoner,

ich freue mich, dass ich von meinem Geschäftskollegen auf das Fairphone aufmerksam gemacht worden bin. Gestern habe ich eines zugeschickt bekommen.

Natürlich will ich es fair betreiben, d. h. frei von den Datensaugern und mit dem Fairphone Open OS.

Viele Grüße an euch alle,
