    Hey,

    Is there anyway to wireless charge with this phone besides using the circle case?

    Thanks

    You can get a battery cover that has it on it. They go from 30.00 to 60 dollars on eBay.

    On At&t the circle case is the only wireless charging option and it's PMA (At&t only) not Qi

    Hey that looks easy to install. Thanks for the link. Does it work just as well as the official LG charging case?

    If your talking about the LG Slim Guard case no one knows since it doesn't appear to be available for US models yet. The charging back link in my post above is working fine on my Verizon VS985. I originally bought the quick circle charging case from Verizon and it works fine too, but the flap proved too cumbersome for my usage style. Standard protective cases fit just fine over this replacement back and the phone still charges at least for the two I've tried.

    I can speak for the quick circle case... For me it's made a great phone even better. Feels a lot better than the original back, and the QI charging works great!

    Do you actually have the housing on the phone and it is charging Qi?

    Because last I read, AT&T deactivated Qi charging on the phone even though it has the port visible.

    Do you have a link to the thread that says they got Qi charging working on the AT&T G3?

    This is the one I ordered.

    I also ordered the LG WCD-100 Charger.

    I have this sticker and can confirm it is extremely easy to install. Will work on Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. Does NOT work on AT&T. There is someone on XDA who is buying these in bulk and selling them. That's how I got mine. Again, extremely easy to install. Also easy to remove the stock NFC only sticker that come standard on back cover. I would highly recommend.

    Thanks for the clarity... I forgot that I may have read somewhere it worked on the other carriers BUT the AT&T models and for some reason thought bembol had an AT&T variant. Man, I wish it did work on my carrier.

    Yeah, not sure why AT&T went this route for G3. They didn't do this for SG5. This is main reason I did not purchase the G3 from AT&T. PMA stinks due to no availability beyond AT&T case. Also bootloader was locked. Thus picked up T-Mobile unit and running it on AT&T network without issue

    What? No, I have received either.

    IDK about what AT&T did but I have the Bell D852 G3.

    I'm sure they didn't. Just used a non-carrier specific wireless cover and it worked fine.

    I received the LG wireless back cover last night but can't use it because I ended up selling my Nillkin charging orb with the S5.

    Another week or two for the WCD.

    I had too, I'm already paying for two plans. My 64GB iPad Air LTE.

    I do love the G3 more, the 5.5" display in this body is just amazing!

    More info on AT&T and PMA:
    http://www.droid-life.com/2014/07/18...arging-att-qi/

    Boy do I feel like a sucker with AT&T. I bought a Quick Circle case and Powermat with my first G3. The case provided inadequate protection and the screen cracked. The Circle case was clumsy to use for me anyway. Sold both the G3 and Circle case on Craig's list but still being unaware AT&T did not support Qi I bought a second phone from them and sent away for a Qi wireless charging back cover. I'm definitely considering leaving AT&T when my contract runs out in October if there is no wireless charging PMA back cover to be found by then.

    Amazon just got a similar new product. Its Amazon prime and you get the charging sticker in 2 days instead of 30 days from alibaba. My Friend ordered one and said it works perfect with the official LG charging base. Just look up LG G3 wireless charging attachment on amazon and you will find it.

    I got a PM on another forum telling my Bell D852 isn't supported. User ask me if my G3 was the D855 model.
