    I've been looking all over the net for the interchangeable back plates for the 820/822 (you know - the different colors, the ruggedized, the wireless charging one.

    Are they not for sale yet? Just been looking out of curiosity, but I can't find them for sale anywhere.

    Sure, I guess? I don't know what they are officially called. But, it was marketed as a pretty nice perk.

    So am I right in thinking that it will cost about $75-$100 to upgrade the 822 to wireless charging? The compatible back plate/battery cover should cost somewhere between $25-$50 and the Wireless charger is going for $50 on Verizon's site.

    That's a bit heavy handed on the pricing in my opinion.

    I'm not sure coughing up and another hundy for wireless charging is really worth it.

    What does everyone else think?

    As for the 822 variant: I'm still waiting for more info from my Nokia contact. They were looking into this issue on Tuesday and I haven't heard from them since.

    Nokia has this product page on their website, though: Wireless Charging Shell for Lumia 820 - Nokia - USA. I swear that just the other day there was more info on locations being sold, but it was linked to the Nokia Denmark website.

    I agree, not worth it. It's not hard to plug a phone in. The wireless charging was just kind of a cool thing to show off but I really don't care if I have it.

    Shells most likely next month..

    Still would buy one even if I did not have a wireless charger.

    But Wireless chargers are expensive. But way cool tech to have. Perhaps after the new year the price's will drop on the plate or pillow.

    Madisonjar, you are correct. I just went to my local Verizon store on my break and checked out the 822 (BTW looks way better in person than the pics we've all seen online and more slim too). I talked to the rep about the wireless charging feature and he didn't know either. So, we took the battery door/back plate off of the floor model and behold, there were contact pins attached to the back plate coming from where a large, slightly raised black square area of it. So actually all you need to make the wireless charging work is the wireless charging plate!

    I haven't seen this mentioned in discussions about the cases so I will mention it here. Today I was in a Nokia corporate store today just nosing around, I had no intention of buying ANYTHING! Yeah right! They had the Nokia charging plates, Nokia charging backs, and this Fat Pillow thing(think charging plate inside a pillow). I bought a yellow back for my 820 and noticed two things: it was matte finish AND(more importantly) the area where the camera is(bezel/lens) was raised and not flush like the non-charging back. This, to me, was a seller as it reducing scratch damage and impact damage to both the bezel and lens. I would say this area is raised 1mm or so.

    They simply are not available yet. I complained to the relevant people to Nokia in USA. They are shipping to AT&T distribution centers as we speak, and will be in in AT&T stores end of this week and definitely by late next week.
