Hopefully this will help some people, as I keep seeing the same questions in different threads over and over. Let's get a thread of accessories all in one thread, and get it stickified. This one in particular is just of links to Verizon's site, but let's get them together from other places as well. Ok, I've added some links to other sites. Mods, can we get a sticky?

http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...-possible.html (accroding to poster in that thread he has a speck candy grip case on his 920 and it still works!) Which is great as I just ordered my wireless charging plate and back :) I have a jelly case so I hope it works!

I upgrade on Monday. Will definitely be getting the shell and holster combo - and they stock that in-store locally. Looking forward to shelving my Trophy. Have family that purchased the 822, a cousin that got the 920 from AT&T, and some friends that picked up the 8X. I'd think twice if the 920 were $100 on VZW, but I'm very impressed with the 822. $50 right now and a ton of value.

I wonder if aftermarket cases like Incipio will fit either properly...

I'm an old Zune Music Pass subscriber, so I would like to retire my Zune HD and have a single device, but that thing has 32GB dedicated to music and I use most of it. I have no interest in having to use my data package to stream music. That's the strange thing about the 8X. For a device that was designed with music in mind, it has so little storage for the music. 32GB may have made me reconsider, but the pull of the Nokia apps, the lure of expandable storage, and the practicality of battery replacement make the 822 the obvious choice for me. I was talking to one of the VZW people not too long after the phones came out and he was puzzled why I wanted the 822. After I explained the advantages, even he wanted the 822 (he had the 8X as his work phone).

@MacPhisto: Yeah... And with how the different colored backs are becoming available, now, I'm liking how only the edge of the phone is really the color of the phone, so you can change the back, and most of the phone is the color of the new back, so my wife, who wanted the white, will be happy now, for only $20 ($15, since I get a discount).
Also, re your Zune pass music, I'm sure you've been following and are aware of the nightmare that is music syncing on WP8, right? I'm sure they'll fix it, (at least I hope they do), but for now.... For me the nightmare is podcasts, but I do a little bit of music, so probably not as much a nightmare, but still a royal pain. Had to switch from the pleasure of Zune to iTunes through WP Desktop, which doesn't work right, and if you have a podcast paused, it will cause the program to throw an exception when it gets to that podcast, or if XBox Music app is open on the phone, it will throw the desktop app for an exception as soon as you hit sync. Nice. Also, it apparently writes EVERY file to the phone each time you sync, not just the new files. So be prepared for long syncs.
@BigBoy29: Yes, I'd expect that the more rigid cases would not like the charging back, but I was rather surprised when I saw a post where someone was able to use the OtterBox with it. I can't recall if I've seen the same success with the Incipio case or not. If someone has had that success, I'd be interested in knowing it.
<Edit> Hmm.... A search of the site reveals that maybe I didn't see what I thought I saw... So I've submitted the question to the OtterBox site to ask them if it will fit.

It's areal shame this has gone backwards because syncing to the phone or the Zune HD with the Zune software worked quite well.
The one other thing I've never been satisfied with in the MS world of music is the lack of gapless music playback. The ZuneHD will sometimes do it, but only with non-DRM music. It will never do gapless with music pass content. It's annoying when listening to a concert or something like Abbey Road. I believe Android does gapless. I know iPhone does. WP not doing it is an embarrassment, especially considering MS' wealth of software engineers.

Podcasts will work downloading OTA either over WiFi or cell (if the file size is small enough), or even streaming. My problem is that I don't want to have to manage it. I was doing them in my Zune HD, because of Trophy's limited storage, but now with a 64GB card I wanted to eliminate the extra device.
Problem is the casts I listen to are best sequential, so I want the setting to be oldest first. Fine, but you have to mark the old ones played, and in order to do that, you have to download them and mark them each played one at a time, and a couple of them have hundreds of episodes. I had to download them all into iTunes as well, but at least I could mark them all played at once. I may end up going back to the Zune, but I'm going to try to stuck this out in the hopes of a fix soon. In fact, there was a story yesterday I think about an update and I forgot to check for it when I got home. I don't know if it was for the metro app or the desktop beta app - the story wasn't clear iirc.
But yeah, it is rather disgusting how they went backward, by YEARS, with the media management.
The hapless playback never really bothered me, but I guess I can see how it could.

I can't believe they're finally selling the fatboy and it's only $60. I got swindled into buying the blue one from some mobile accessory site, it took forever to arrive and then I discovered it was a european charging plate (plug wasn't US). Fortunately, I've got a converter so I can use it.
the pillow is silly but being able to toss the phone onto the pillow is nicer than gently placing it on a bare plate.

1. The wireless charging back does indeed fit with the Otterbox case.
2. The fatboy works like a charm even with the Otterbox case!
Color me impressed! And all the iPhone and Android fanboys in our office are impressed too! lol

Incipio now also offers a Feather case for the Lumia 822:
Nokia Lumia 822 feather Ultra Thin Snap-On Case
I do not know that it will work with the wireless charging back though; I asked them and got a confusing answer that said "we do not support non Incipio products" :| Anyway, YMMV. This is exactly the kind of a case that I'd want but I want my wireless charging more...
