There is a list of vendors, note caveat under the UK list. I called clove and they were not optimistic so I suggest you email them if you want an update.

While buying from a reseller would get you the device, just be aware that you will not get any warranty-related help from Fairphone either.

I imagine the reseller will provide the 2 year warranty and act as an intermediary but you won’t get the extra (up to three years) from Fairphone which only happens to registered phones. So unless the reseller registers if for you then two years maybe.

UPDATE: I have just spoken to [clove] they say they will provide the 5 year warranty not the 2 years. Further they said there was no reason this would not extend to Canada and the USA.

So it make sense to visit their site and email them etc.
sales@clove.co.uk

All the best

Just spoke to clove again and they say they will not ship batteries alone. So if a battery dies you have to send the whole phone or make other arrangements.

Were you able to finally place an order?
Clove.co.uk will ship to US, but there may be import/customs duties that get added in the US.
I went with Kickmobiles through Ebay (though you can order from their website) because Ebay has a return policy if anything goes wrong, and they promised it would be delivered within 3 days. They shipped it from London this past Monday and it arrived the next day. It cost more through Kickmobiles, but I knew what the total price would be.
Good luck!

The batteries are usually the issue. When buying moto mod battery packs I had things get as far as the ebay global shipping centre only to have the order refused an export and refunded.

Amazon on the other hand were fine to ship batteries.

Good to know will keep that in mind if it falls through
