    For those using the Nokia charging pad is there a beep or audible sound when its done charging. The Lg pad beeps and its annoying at night.

    Just open the LG pad, and rip the speaker off the circuit board. Lol I left instructions and a picture on amazon.com.

    Component one is the destroyed buzzer. It was covered in that plastic adhesive mentioned above, I carefully used a non-sharp stylus to break the adhesive as best I could, then just grabbed the box with pliers and pulled it right off. It obviously left stuff behind, but at least now the speaker doesn't work.

    Component two is another box that is covered in that white adhesive. Somehow during my testing, I thought that component was generating the sound, so I pulled it off, and that's what broke it (see post 1 in this discussion). I had to just solder in a connection, and it's working OK. Don't touch this part... learn from my mistake!

    A note... you should be fine to pull off the black box. That's what I did, and it's fine. According to regulatory filings I found (that I don't want to go digging for again), the buzzer is the end of that circuit segment. Removing the buzzer just moves the end of the circuit up a little bit, it doesn't actually affect anything. If you feel more comfortable, you can stick in a small screwdriver and destroy the disks, but removing the buzzers "black box" is not electronically unsafe to the circuit board.

    Idiots at Verizon told me that the 8x doesnt work on the nokia pad.

    All they had to do was set it down for a second to be proven wrong...

    I bought my 8x at Verizon, they ordered me the Nokia wireless charger DT-900. Received and installed it today. Its been working great. no issues at all even with a phone case.

    only thing dumb about it is the size and shape of the power supply, it takes up more than one outlet.

    I guess it comes down to how smart or dumb the local Verizon employees are...

    No, it's silent. There is a tiny white LED however.

    actually, when I put my 8x on the pad, it chirps to tell me its connected and charging, but it makes no sound after that.

    Agreed about the power supply. It BIG, white, and UGLY! Sure wish it was more the size of the stock provided HTC USB adapter plug.

    How did you get the charger apart? Are there screws or just glued together

    There are four screws underneath the four rubber feet on the bottom. Use tweezers or your fingernail to pull them out, then you'll see the screws underneath. Four more screws to detach the circuit board from the base.

    The Nokia charger should make no noise. The LG does beep.

    The Nokia charger works great. Like others have said, it makes no sounds at all - which is TONS better than the other charging pillows and pads that chirp when you drop a phone on them, and chirp again when the phone tops off, then chirp again a few hours later when the power drains and charging kicks in again. The Nokia charging plate has none of this garbage and is completely silent.

    My Verizon HTC 8x makes a 3 tone sound when you place it on the charging plate - and doesn't make any other sound ever again (not when it's topped off and not when you remove it). Perfect!

    There's a teeny LED on the front of the Nokia charger that's illuminated only when charging. But it's so small and is nowhere near as annoying as pretty much every other LED on our alarms, clock radios or other bedside devices. Again - perfect!

    The Black charger comes with a black plate, black cable but - strangely - a white plug/wall wart. Odd but true. That's how they're built and shipped. The White charger is completely white - white plate, white cable, white wall wart (very iPad'ish).

    Even though the Verizon and non-Verizon 8X are the same size/dimensions, only Verizon's HTC 8x support wireless charging. Not sure why. I'd like someone to explain it to me. Nevertheless, all HTC 8X phones have the exact same dimensions. So even though it's not clear whether there's different hardware 'under the hood' to support wireless charging, all HTC 8X's are exactly the same size.

    I hope that helps...

    A note: When my phone is set to Vibrate (volume off), it vibrates for a small moment when placed on a charging plate.

    Where does the charging pad sit in relation to the phone? If the phone is on top of the charging pad, can you see the LED on the charger?

    Yes, there is additional hardware to support wireless charging. I guess it is just very cleverly squeezed into the phone.

    The little white LED is on the front of the charger (opposite of the plug in back). The 8x is a long device and can be placed on the charger with varying levels of overhang. If it is by your bed like mine, if you let the bottom of the 8x overhang the charger by about an inch, the LED is barely visible at night.

    What's the power requirements of the charging pad? Typical USB plug is .5 amps. palm touchstone was like.9-1.0 amps IIRC. Typical car chargers didn't provide enough amps for the touchstone. A DC to DC converter was the best solution.
    Depends on the charger you use, Palm and other chargers do provide the proper amperage.

    I would assume the same would go for these new wireless charging options, still looking for amperage requirements.

    Do you have a special 8x version?
    My 8x does not have wireless charging, that I know of.
    Only Verizon 8x has wireless charging

    Exactly what I wanted to know, I have a 8X and read that only Verizon 8X use wireless charging, can anyone confirm that it is only Verizon models and not any other.
    Only Verizon 8x has wireless charging


    wait, what?! HTC 8X can be charged wirelessly?! didnt know that.... sorry for my spelling

    Is the Verizon model thicker and heavier than the standard 8x?
    No....exactly the same as all the others.


    Been doing this for years with my Palm Pre. Part of my reason to moving to the WinPhone8 are the wireless charging options! :)
    Same here...plus I love the OS. Though I miss webOS, but have a Verizon Pre3 to play with, and my Touchpad.




    Been using my 8x with the Nokia charging stand...totally kix azz! (you ca see my Pr3 on its Touchstone, in front of my Touchpad on it's Touchstone, to the right...can u tell I love wireless charging...lol)

    Verizon likes to have things exclusive to them, that's why they got the Lumia 822 as opposed to the 820. Just something to separate themselves.

    How does a charging speaker work with an 8X? I use my phone mainly for music, so it would be awesome to have that accessory at my disposal.

    @darkgift - I saw the nokia charging stand at the at&t store and tried to put my 8x on it but it wouldn't sit upright because the bottom bezel of the phone didn't like the base. Did you do anything to modify the stand or was I just incompetent?
