  • Issue#8672: Fairphone - Voice mail number cannot be saved

    @KleinerAdmin wrote: Hi, I use my FP2 with a Telekom-SIM (former T-Mobile) in Germany. Unfortunately the voice mail number (3311) cannot be saved under Phone - Settings - Call-Settings -SUBS Settings - Mailbox - Configuration - Voicemail number (translated from german).

  • Issue#8673: Fairphone - Imgur app does not work

    @Tom_B wrote: The Imgur app (a life necessity) doesn't work on the Fairphone 2. It loads, but then opening an image fails (does nothing). I've seen no such reports from other users of the app (millions). This makes me think it's the fairphone's doing. The 'enable privacy Impact' setting has no influence on this behaviour. I do not think it's related. Posts: 2 Participants: 2 Read full topic...

  • Issue#8676: Fairphone - Cologne: May I have a closer look?

    @RunM wrote: Hello proud owners of a Fairphone 2. Since there seems to be no local community in Cologne as of now, I'm trying a different approach. I'm tempted to order a FairPhone for myself but would like to see one up close first. Is there anybody out there (and by "there" I mean "close to the city of Cologne") who would let me have a look at or even [gasp] touch their Fairphone 2? Promise I won't drop it. Of course the benevolent owner will be rewarded with a coffee-related drink of her/h...

  • Issue#8678: Fairphone - Problem with SD-card after every reboot

    @aTrooper wrote: Hi,I just my 64GB micro sd card some month with my other phone. I inserted the card in the FP2, erased the card and copied some backups via wifi on it. After a while I rebooted the phone and there was no sd card. At the storage options I just found two buttons (mount and erase). Mount doesn't work, so the only option was erasing.

  • Issue#8680: Fairphone - A 100.000 community ringtones; Share yours!

    @douwe wrote: Hey all, Our support team member and mad sound magician @Sietse made a crazy composition. Because last week we got over 100.000 likes on Facebook, we we're fantasizing what 100.000 Fairphones would sound like. The same evening @Sietse sat down at his computer and created this: I think this is a perfect start to ask the community to share their home-made tunes for their Fairphone.
