    Like I said just CAREFULLY pull out the little metal stubs on the charging cover and it will work perfectly. It should look like this picture Attachment 39613
    Everyone having issues, try what Rubin89 did. I did the same thing, glad to see great minds think a-like. I also went a bit old-skool and put some aluminum paper in the prong holes, for a better connection. Looks ghetto, but you only see it when you take it off. So I don't care.

    The aluminum serves for better connections and in case the prongs are forced back when on the phone, the small thickness of the aluminum paper keeps pushing them out. I'm guessing, if the pongs go back to their normal state, and you have to keep pulling them out, the metal will wear and the prongs will fall.

    By having the aluminum stuffed in the back, they always pop out. Nokia really needed to make this design a bit better. Perhaps instead of holes, they should have just had a black metal strip. That way it doesn't stand out too much and the prongs attach easier.

    I have just started having issues with mine, it connects and then disconnects twice I have woken up to a dead phone I wish they had it built in like the 920 this is so annoying!

    Update

    Pulled the two contacts up a little and I've not had any problems since it has now become reliable again.

    noticed last night that the glance screen had gone off so I looked this morning and one of the prongs had fallen off so no contact, anyone dismantled one of these or repaired them?

    I do wonder if you can take out the coils from the "official" covers tape them onto the phone with a bit of gaffer tape, and then use any case you wanted.
    Anyone actually tried this? Or maybe something a bit more professional than the gaffer idea anyway... ;)

    Thats a great idea unless like me you have the camera grip, I really can't understand why Nokia did not build it into the phone like the 920 its my only problem with the 1020

    This thread is exactly why I want it built into all phones. It is a wonderful feature.
    If they built it into the phone it would make the back flat so it wouldn't rock on flat surfaces AND we'd have wireless charging.....but then CNET reviewers would complain about the "thickness" of the phone :P....personally it's a good tradeoff

    This is not true at all. Adding the wireless strip would add very little thickness to the phone. I think the reason AT&T didn't want it built in is their support of PMA. The 1520 seems to make this especially clear.

    Maybe because the current lens thickness also? With the wireless cover, the back surface is flatter whereas if you don't have one, you have the camera bulge (which, with it, the charging receiver wouldn't be right up against the plate, soo wireless charging would take even more of a loss than it already does). Just my theory, that maybe it isn't just AT&T's fault.

    That and Nokia are trying to stay open for different wireless charging standards

    im so glad someone has mentioned this, i have a Nokia Lumia 925, its been in to Nokia repair twice, and both times they have said it was now working. when i got home last night after being without my phone for nearly two weeks, i nearly cried when i sat it on my JBL PowerUp and Desk Stand and neither charged my phone. both chargers acted as if they was providing charge to the phone but my phone didnt 'ping' or beep or flash. nothing.

    on the 925 cases, there are 3 pogo pins, of which i will be pulling down a tad and seeing if this creates a connection. i will be overwhelmed with joy if it does!

    also my NFC capabilities dont seem to be working, which is rather annoying :(

    anyone got the white version of this? cant find it anywhere.
    Same here..I've searched literally everywhere, but nothing..A nokia care employee said that they have the item code at their system but the status is "pending" since the release date of 1020...Just frustrating..

    hi mate..
    Had this problem also.. tried several NIB covers at Harvey Norman.. when to Telstra and tried several types of Chargers! even aftermarket chinese cheapo's.. NO LUCK.

    NFC tags worked fine but would not charge. My DT-910 light would come on but no charge to the phone.

    so I figured if NFC tags worked.. there was definitely a connection happening... a little experience with electricity tho had me thinking about 'load'.. so I wondered if the connection wasn't secure enough to carry an electrical 'load'

    Here's the simple fix!! on the back of the phone in the little recesses for the connection to the wireless cover. SCREW A LITTLE PIECE OF ALFOIL INTO A TINY LITTLE BALL AND FILL EACH OF THE HOLES SEPARATELY. then simply click on the back cover, ensuring not to remove the alfoil and BINGO.. It WILL WORK!!

    Anyone tried tearing apart the charging cover? I don't like the cover so I didn't buy one, but I have DT-910 (I had 820 before)
    I'd like to keep my current case on while charging wirelessly so I came up with an idea.

    Tear apart the charging cover and take out the wireless charging module or whatever that is, stick it on the phone and put a case on the phone to keep it in place.
    Is that possible?

    EDIT: Found the thread discussing the DIY QI charging.
