    Sounds cool, but I'd need some kind of app -- maybe a snippet of whatever code NFC can digest -- to do that. Is there guidance anywhere on how to do that?

    I havent had any issues yet. I drop it, it charges and the light turns off (stops charging) when it's full.

    I'd be curious about this too. Just set mine up and it charges fine, but when trying the NFC it tells me I need an app, but a search says no apps are available. I have plenty of apps that should work, so I don't really know what to do at this point.

    Do you notice that the back if the phone gets significantly hotter when wirelessly charging as compared to charging with a cable?

    I've noticed that and wonder if its just me.

    Also I saw in this post that the phone stops charging when full....is this true?

    Could you post a pic of the black on gray? I'd like to see what it looks like before ordering one.

    It gets warm, I'd guess warmer than wired charging but I haven't compared them. Just going off memory. On the wireless stand once it's fully charged it does feel cool to pick up, so it must stop charging or at least do trickle charging.

    Mine gets slightly warm right in the area where the contacts are embedded in the back, but it's barely noticeable.

    I would expect it to generate at least some extra warmth in addition to what you'd normally get. One of the losses through inductive transfer is through heat. Put your hand on the large part of your laptop adapter when it's been used for a while. That's heat generated by inductive transfer - the transformer in the box. It's a much larger coil than what's in the phone and the charging plate, but also the phone/charging plate has more insulation between the coils, so I'm thinking there's going to have to be more current flow to get the same charging rate. That would lead to the charging plate being warmer, and since the phone is in contact, it is going to end up warmer through conductive heat transfer. No surprise, and nothing I'd get concerned about, provided it doesn't get hot enough that you can't handle it (or something close to that).

    FYI, the black charging cover is WAY less slippery than the original white. Almost has a kind of rubbery feel to it. Big improvement.

    I was able to pick up the 822 black Charging Back at a 25% discount at the time of ordering my upgrade. Very minor (if noticeable at all) difference in thickness. Charging back does not impact any cover (skin, Defender, Triton).

    Charging plate and pillow are a nice idea, but liked the idea of the Nokia Charging Stand much more. Very difficult to find. Looks as if you can buy it off of the Nokia site, but the purchasing site directs you to one of the major US carriers. VZW didn't carry, AT&T was out. Amazon was out as well. Ended up finding one on the T-Mobile site and ordered yesterday.

    I emailed Nokia about the compatibility. The Nokia pad is the same as the Nokia stand and both work with the 822 - as long as you have the charging back attached.

    Has anyone used a fatboy pillow recharger for the 822? I went to my verizon wireless page and it said it was not compatible with my 822. I was assuming that it meant before the charging shell was purchased/installed because I can't see why it wouldn't work. Just trying to verify if anyone has used the fatboy with the 822. Thanks

    It's compatible. It's been posted elsewhere. Verizon isn't the brightest bulb on the tree.

    None here. Every once in a while I'll look over and see the charging light blinking so I just pick the phone up and place it back down and it continues on.
