    I can't seem to pair the DT-903 with 950 XL.
    Guessing it's because it only works with WP8.1 with Device Hub installed...

    Did anyone else get it working? This is going to be one very expensive wireless charger if MS decides not to release drivers/updates to support DT-903, and force users to get the upcoming DT-904!

    Before you give up, try turning your phone in landscape and see if it works. My 950xl would not pair in portrait stand but when turned to landscpe, it paired fine.

    Are you referring to using the NFC to pair?
    Because I'm able to hold the NFC over the right spot, and it brings up the prompt to pair the device. But it doesn't actually pair after that - keeps saying it failed to pair.

    I am having the same problem. The 950 XL recognizes the charger, but will not pair. It will slowly charge, but the reason I bought it was for the features such as letting you know when your battery was low or you missed a message. The specs on the DT-904 look the same as the DT-903. It will pair with my wife’s 640 that has an external Qi receiver. I only bought it because I knew I would be getting the 950 XL.

    Mine paired, just tap the area near the rear camera on the 950XL to the spot at the bottom of the DT-903 where its written 'nfc'. Device hub functions can be achieved through the Gadgets app in the 950XL...

    Hope this helps...

    My 950 XL paired with the DT-903 (new for me today) via NFC perfectly the first time. However my L920 running 586.11 simply refuses to pair, so I guess its hit or miss

    My 950XL was able to be paired via the Gadget app. My 950 cannot pair to it at all.

    Thanks. I have tried that but still no luck. Maybe I got an old one with older firmware

    My 950 XL paired with DT-903 using NFC without any problem. Same with the DT-910 stand. However, with the 910 the problem is that it doesn't charge because of the single coil charging area. I can get it to seemingly charge in a carefully placed landscape position, but it keeps switching on and off and charging speed is almost negligible. There are many other Qi cradles around, albeit not from major brands and none with pairing features, AFAICS. I'll try a couple of them.

    I have a dt-900 it charges my 950xl fine it's not quick charge but fine for charge over night? I've never seen pairing at all on it is this feature of new chargers?

    The DT-900 doesn't have NFC. The newer DT-903/904 have it.

    May I ask what is the point of having nfc on charger?

    You can pair it with the phone and then monitor the charging status from the Gadgets app and configure associated applications, for example if you want to have some action to happen automatically when you charge the phone. I have a charger in one room that I've configured to start Groove and play music when I put the phone on top of it. You can also see on a map where the charger was the last time you connected it, although I guess a charger doesn't move that much after all :-)

    I just found my solution to my pairing problem at forum "Lumia 950XL - Paired with DT-903.. Doesn't show notifications from the charger..? A post by JoaoCSM which stated the following "Just clean the pairing from Lumia 950 XL and from the charger (long press on the bottom button until it blinks a few times).

    Then open the Gadgets app on Lumia and pair the charger from there. It will ask permission to pair and so on. After the pairing is done you'll have all the options related to notifications, charging needed warning and led bright.

    Regards
    JoaoCSM"
    This fixed my problem Thanks to JoaoCSM

    Same here, it will pair via bluetooth but not through the gadgets app. Endless rebooting and resetting following the instructions above and still no joy. I have the 950 Xl too

    lol. I can't believe I never realized that there is a button on the bottom of the charging plate...

    Hold it for 8 seconds to clear previous pairings and the phone connects through NFC without issue...

    Feel so stupid.
