    Is this to program the pad with an instruction, or is it how the phone charges?

    I was hoping to buy a QI pad for my desk at work and was going to stick an NFC sticker to it to set the phone to silent. Will this not work?

    I'd love to hear from someone who has that setup what works with it myself, so I'll be following this thread.

    When I upgrade my phone (after Windows 10 mobile is out), then I'll be wanting to get QI/NFC.

    It would be nice to have a QI charger on my nightstand with NFC sticker that would put my phone on Quiet Hours AND start my Night Stand Clock. When lifting the phone off the charger, I'd like the Quiet Hours to be turned off and Night Stand Clock to close. That would be ideal.

    When I put it on a QI pad for my office, I'd like it to connect to my Bluetooth Keyboard. There are so many uses for that. Yes, I'm retired and still have a home office. ;)

    The current series Nokia/Microsoft charging pads have NFC because they also have Bluetooth, the NFC is just a more convenient means for pairing the bluetooth connection. Once the phone is paired to your pad, the charging light will blink or flicker when your phone is running out of juice and needs a charge.

    Due to the security limitations of WP8.1, NFC has limited ability to change settings on your phone. So, unfortunately, I don't think you can silence your phone with an NFC tag. This is an area I hope they improve with Wp10. Even if you have to check a box in the phone to allow an "Advanced" mode, I'd love the option to modify more phone settings with NFC.

    The older DT-910 stand had NFC, (no Bluetooth) so it could launch an app. However, it (WP) required confirmation EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

    So, rather than add the feature, they'll scrap the whole interface and start over again.
