    It does add a mm or two to the thickness of the phone but it is worth it. Also because of my corp discount, I paid a lower price for both the cover and plate.

    The cover is made of the same plastic as the regular cover but it doesn't feel slippery to me. YMMV

    I am very disappointed about how limited nokia has been with verizon. Other companies have colors, we can't even get a wireless charging case in 822 in grey. And plus i feel like the second i buy the 822 they will release the 920

    This is an older thread, but was wondering if anyone has found the wireless charging cover online for a realistic price, as per usual Verizon likes to bend their customers over for those extra dollars instead of actually including features.

    I have not, But I had this exchange with a verizon on line chat "Specialist" Yesterday.
    Akeiba: Yes it does have wireless charging capability.

    wireless: What is needed for that to be done?

    Akeiba: You would need to purchase the charger that does not have to be plugged into the wall it will be on the accessories page.

    wireless: Do you have a link for it?

    Akeiba: Were you ordering the phone today?

    Akeiba: ClickHereForNokiaLumia822WirelessCharger

    wireless: Perhaps. I wanted to understand it fully first.

    wireless: So with this charger, I would be all set to wirelessly charge?

    Akeiba: Correct.



    So I confirmed this with a phone call and ordered the phone, the rep told me that it will wirelessly charge with the base, It did not need a back. I have a distinct feeling that verizon will let me down. (Crazy I know) But one way or another, I am joining the 822 owners tomorrow.

    That "specialist" is probably an *****. Unless something changed recently, you will need to buy the wireless charging back separately. Akeiba might have been thinking of the HTC 8X which has built in wireless charging on the Verizon model.


    When you get the phone, look at the back cover and see how it compares to this image.

    I guess the benefit of a sealed phone/battery unit is Verizon can't remove the wireless charging back plate and make it optional. Typical move on their part.

    Got my cover for free. Only took 3 phone calls. But I got it. Now the question is, Should I be worried about Wireless charging baking the phone? Heat is not great for the battery, and it get's warm. Should I leave it on overnight?

    Just ordered the red 822 from Verizon for my wife this past weekend with the charging plate and it's to be delivered tomorrow. I also asked the online sales assistant if the plate was all I needed and I was told yes.

    Guess I'll be making some phone calls tomorrow. Suggestions to reduce the number of calls from 3?

    Has anyone confirmed if the red limited edition version has either included wireless charging, or possibly offer a red wireless back?

    I suspect the red will suffer the same problem as the grey version, the only choice will be to get a black or a white wireless back..

    I would imagine it might be the same as the grey...on the Grey Nokia+Verizon has said they have decided not to sell it due to demand for that color.

    If anyone is interested I was able to get a grey wireless charging back that was created by Nokia as a sample for Verizon...you could PM me for details.

    Thanks!

    I suggest you facebook them now and get ready. Then call back and talk to someone else and confirm that you only need the plate. Then ask them to text you that information. Document, Document.

    They do not make a grey for sale...they (Nokia) made a few (probably as samples), but I believe they decided at this point not to produce the grey backs for sale. Pic is attached. PM me if interested.Click image for larger version.
