Has anyone been able to use wireless charging on the G3 without buying a special back cover? It's supposed to be Qi compliant but the Nokia DT-900 charging pad I used with my HTC DNA does not work. I've also tried a Samsung one and the LG model. Store employees are clueless..
The strange this is, the factory back plate appears to have some circuitry built in and there art 2 contacts in theback plate that match up to contacts in the phone.
The only OFFICIALLY available accessory that enables QI wireless charging is the Quick Circle case sold by Verizon.
I ordered that and it worked with my TYLT QI charger. However, the back of the case is bulkier than the original, non-wireless back and that prevented it from working with my belt holster case combo. After tedious online searching, I found a company (e Trade Supply) that ships the original, wireless-enabled back from Hong Kong. Here's the URL:
When searching for the battery door that enables wireless charging, you must pay close attention to the contacts inside the door. There should be 4 contacts, not 2, but important that the two pairs of contacts are separated by a larger space, not evenly spaced. Good Luck
ps... Yes, store employees ARE clueless...even at the official corporate stores, I have found that they can't answer the simplest questions, including one I had about searching through apps. I found out through the folks who support the Touchdown Outlook synch app about the long-press on the recent-apps key to access search and other hidden menu items. Store help was helpless.
