    I'm in the midst of buying a Lumia 810 because of my desire to upgrade from my badly outdated HTC radar 4g, but I cannot find a wireless charging shell. Anyone know where I could buy one?

    I have a feeling eBay is your best bet. T-Mobile apparently no longer carries them.

    Do you have a Microsoft Store near you? They might still carry the 810 wireless charging shells, if you're lucky.

    Anyone else noticed how the price of the charging shells suddenly jumped after the update came out? Was lucky I won an auction just a few days before... hmmm, anyone else here contributing to the price inflation? LOL

    Been monitoring it since I lost in the auction for a RED charging shell ... I'm quite doubtful about how original is that item since no such color was officially launched as well as a GRAY shell, but then again maybe it was in the pipeline. Though hey, it's a RARE red charging shell! Lost by just $2 .... I settled for the gray shell

    Both Grey and Red are there [original available]. I have my brother using Grey one with my old Lumia 810, while I sold Red to a friend just few days back.

    I see... yay! I suppose I'm getting an original item! So T-mobile and Nokia just didn't publish it?

    Yeah it seems it was only publicized through a facebook post: More Nokia Lumia 810 Colors | Pocketnow
    I'm drooling over the red shell, it's a nice matte red color. Oh dear, I think I'm having buyer's remorse now getting the gray. LOL. Hope I get to love it eventually when I see it.

    Beware. Bought what was supposed to be a CC 3063 black wireless charging shell on Ebay last week, and got a normal shell in the mail. The seller refunded my money immediately, but the frustration lingers.

    After going to a number of T-Mobile and Microsoft stores with no luck I finally had to get one off of eBay. Someone was selling the cyan back with the black charging plate.

    Slightly off topic, but do they make cases that go around the extra bulk of the charging shell? I have a cyan one, and it got slightly beat up since its a harder plastic than the rubber of the original shell; I purchased a grey one and I don't want it to go the same route.

    Had the same thought when I tried the (same color) shell. The rubber case has saved my phone from cracking the screen countless times... So it's a bit hard for me to part ways with it because it cannot fit

    I just ordered my 810 with charging shell, and I'm a phone dropper so I'm definitely making a thread about this
