Which operator or telephone provider should I choose for my FP1? Can I use my current mobile voice/data?

All Fairphones work with any operator in Europe. This means that if you want you can keep using your current network provider. You will only need to remove your SIM card from your current phone and insert it in your Fairphone 1. Please note that the Fairphone 1 uses a mini-SIM format. If you have a micro or nano SIM card you can buy a SIM adaptor from any electronics store. The Fairphone 2 and Fairphone 3/3+ use other formats.

When considering to change your provider we recommend you to go for the main brand (e.g. Vodafone or T-Mobile). The so-called "daughter" providers may not perform as well as the main ones.

Disregarding of which provider you’ll be using, note that the Fairphone 1 will not work on 4G/LTE. It will work on:

  • GSM/EDGE (2G) under the following frequencies: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz;
  • and UMTS/HSPA+ (3G) under the following frequencies: 2100/900 MHz.
