I replied on the link you shared. Probably not, I only get a H symbol, not LTE, but it is sooo fast I have zero lag at all.

Hi!

I am Sebastian, I am born in Graz, the second biggest city in Austria. I live in Vienna.

I am very interested in sustainability, therefore the fairphone was the best choice for me.

I am optimistic that our society will find its way to sustainability.

The first stepstone ist for me finding sustainable happiness - for me possible with knowledge and consciousness about oxytocin, and other happiness hormones.

Another important part for me is perma culture - a way of sustainable grown food.

Last but not least, dignity is for me the most important value, that helps me find peace, freedom and community - Gerald Hüther’s concept about dignity expresses my feelings about it.

I am greatful to having you in this community,

have a nice time with your fairphone and enjoy your life!

Greetings,

Sebastian

When we meet up to fix your phone you should meet my mother. She can’t stop talking about Gerald Hüther. :wink:

Hi,
I’m Javi, from Spain, 31 years old and chemical engineer. I love technology, swimming and science in general (I recently started to study Physics).

I have been worried about enviroment since a was young and I am always trying to minimize the impact of my behavior in the enviroment. Is for that reason I know about Fairphone.

I do not own a FP, because I didn’t buy any phone since about 3 years ago, before I knew about this company. Sometimes I think about buy a FP2 only because I like to support brands worried about fair trade and enviroment (maybe a FP2 new life edition?).

I am also worried about society. In the last years I am worried about this two topics (sustainability and society) more than ever so I became a member different ONGs.

I work in an industry involved in the circular economy too. We use the waste of the winemaking industry to abtain high valued products for the food industry, pharmaceuticals and energy.

My only treasure are my friends and family. I notice then people around us is the most important resource we have in life.

So, this is a brief abstract about me.

(Sorry if sometimes I make mistakes, English is not my mother tongue)

I hope I can talk with other people with a few interests in common. So, nice to meet you all!

Welcome here, there is plenty to read. Feel free to use the search function.

Hallo there!

My first handheld computer was a nokia lumia 620. It worked fairly well, with only fewer and fewer apps as a major down side, until it suddenly stopped working.
Still hesitating about FP 2, I bought a second hand lumia 630. This one is still working okay, with same issue(s) as 620: fewer apps and browser crashing for more and more websites.

Thanx to a whim I have a FP 2, for 2 months now.
I have been looking up which OS I could install on the FP 2 and tried to decide which one to go for ( reading a lot of interesting posts on this forum , for instance posts of @paulakreuzer). In the long run I decided I’d go for Fairphone Open ( for starters, possibly ).
As a rough guide I’m trying to get @FP2GenericUser’s setup from https://forum.fairphone.com/t/my-fp2-open-hardened-google-free-setup/ installed.

Location: Utrecht, NL.

Amatoo,

Halò all!

New to this community. I’m waiting for the delivery of an FP3 and have been interested since hearing about the FP2 a wee while ago. Hoping to kick the habit of needing a new phone every year and enjoy the ability to repair my phone.

Current phone is an HTC10 with an ailing battery, so a changeable battery will be great.

Live in Scotland and am the keeper of many :chicken: and a couple of :duck:

  • I’m interested in Free Software. That’s the first major reason why I chose #discuss:fairphone-2 to be my first smartphone.
  • The second is to #livingwogoogle. It feels like this company is everywhere! But fortunately, it isn’t.
  • Last but not least, I care about the (amount of) recources, including labourship and (raw) materials.

And sometimes, I’m quite critic…
