Smartphone mail-in: we’d love to hear from you
For a few of you out there, flashing a smartphone to install an OS can be done in a matter of minutes; for many, it is uncharted territory and an impossible learning curve… WE HEAR YOU!
To solve this issue, we’d like to offer flashing your smartphone as a mail-in service. How does that work? Simple as 1/2/3:
We send you a foam postal box and prepaid shipping sticker to send us your beloved phone.
An expert technician flashes your smartphone with love and care and installs /e/.
A few days later, you receive your smartphone with /e/, ready to be used and abused 😉
We’d be curious to know how much you’d be comfortable to pay for such a service. To make it simple it would include smartphone flashing, packaging and not to forget pick-up and shipment!
