  • Issue#48787: Fairphone - Can't create groups in Whatsapp

    @Werner wrote: As the topic says, I can't create groups in Whatsapp. I can type in a groupname but whenever I add contacts, they don't appear in the list of groupmembers. Same problem with the grouppicture.Privacy Impact was turned off. Turning it on and off again didn't change the behaviour. So did clearing the cache or rebooting the FP2.Any ideas? Many thanks!

  • Issue#101447: Fairphone - Dismissing incoming calls when phone inactive

    @readingfoodcat wrote: I can't work out how to reject an incoming call when the phone was idle.

  • Issue#150204: Fairphone - Wanna exchange your casing? Offer opaque black, looking for transparent blue/black

    @Nixbligger wrote: Hello there, community! Somehow I failed to grasp at which step in the ordering process I could have chosen one of the semi transparent cases instead of the default black one. And as I am reluctant to throw in some 40 more bucks (30€ the case+11€ shipping) to order an additional one, I'd rather keep up the hope that one of you guys might be unhappy with his, and would prefer to switch your transparent blue (or black) for the default black one. If you are, by any rare ...

    @ArjenU wrote: This morning I experienced a new bug: when starting my FP2, it did not get past the first black screen with "Fairphone" and "android" on it. It should turn blue after a while, but after 5 minutes nothing had changed. It did not respond to the power button, so after a couple more minutes, I removed the battery. When starting again, all went alright. I am getting used to random reboots during the day . Is this another thing I have to prepare for and live with? Or can something b...

  • Issue#229521: Fairphone - Design improvements, ideas FP2

    @Vinni wrote: Working with the FP2 I have some ideas that could further improve the phone. Maybe some day, there will be a design change and I'd like to collect a few things that I have recognized: The FP2 comes with a cheap screen protection probably to prevent damage during shipping and handling. This screen protection however is quite sensitive to anything that rubs against it and it scratches easily. Maybe it is possible to ship the FP with a real screen protection. I don't think that w...
