    Once a youtube disassembly tutorial hits and some wireless charging info becomes available, i'm definitely voiding the warranty on my tmobile device.

    wireless charging just seems so convenient for the car, especially if you have bluetooth audio streaming.

    You can't disassemble 8X - it has unibody.

    I'm sure somebody will figure out a way to do it. Surely there *has* to be a way to take it apart and service it!

    I'm totally gonna do it with my o2 8X - unless the weight trade-off is too much.

    I'm confused. There have been numerous info about it being internal and functioning. Why would you need to open it up and install it?

    Lumia 900 is unibody and that never stopped anyone from creating numerous disassembly videos (for replacing the battery, screen, etc)

    The One X is a similar unibody style - but people found that basically a guitar pick and suction cup could pry the edges of the screen out of the plastic shell. I would only do it if it is really easy though as it isn't a hardship to plug it in.

    unless it was plastic welded or epoxied, it'll come apart cleanly. how do you think they get it open when it comes time to service them? :)

    fingers crossed for the tmobile version i guess. i'm not holding my breath, though.

    perhaps it was cheaper to just manufacture one kind of cover? who knows.

    i worded my post poorly.

    i was referring to taking the verizon wirless charging back plate and putting it on the 8x from other carriers (att, tmobile). or just retrofitting a custom wireless charging solution on your own.

    Right then. Massive bump time.

    Verizon users, who wants to sacrifice their phone so us poor non-Verizon folk can find out how to put in a wireless charging coil? ;)

    i'm just going to keep an eye on this site: http://www.parts4repair.com/nokia-lu...ly-with-bezel/

    whenever it's available, they'll likely have it in stock. we'll be able to pick up unbranded backs too. shouldn't be too expensive. the lumia 900 parts are under $40 for the housing

    Check out this in depth video of the 900. Anything can be disassembled.

    I'm hoping this is similar to other HTC devices and has an internal microSD card, so that could be bumped up to 32GB.

    if that's the trend with HTC, then it is likely the case.

    it was the same deal with my dell venue pro

    HTC second gen didnt have memory cards, this gen wont either, its much slower at reading so they scrapped it.

    How do we know that they don't all have it? Maybe it is just a feature that can be activated?

    What is that based on? I'm not sure what second generation means for HTC since they pump out so many phones. Until someone cracks this open, I wouldn't jump to that conclusion yet. In my eyes, it is much easier to make a phone with a microSD slot (UHS-1 speed is 104mb/s) and have a 8GB and 16GB model as they do. The phone is the exact same except for the bump in memory and they charge $100 more for a card that is $12.

    The titan and radar have built in memory. Was discovered with a teardown. The system design is similar to all htcs android internals which use internal memory. The memory cards were recycled win mobile and android handsets

    someone already disassembled their 8x, so that's not the problem.

    still waiting for 8x repair parts to be up for sale. maybe mid january we'll start seeing them

    I dropped mine and luckily no real damage however the unibidy unclipped itself around the USB port, recon it will come apart easy enough

    Is there any way to do this yet?

    Do all 8X's come with the hardware and are simply disabled on other carriers?

    It's only in the Verizon 8x. Hardware-wise.
