    Hi all

    My wife has a yellow 1020 with a CC-3036 wireless charging shell case. It broke earlier in the year after a taking a fall and one of the two charging contacts came loose. She bought another and guess what, the same thing has happened today. We looked on-line for a replacement (the usual places in the UK - i.e. amazon, mobilefun.co.uk, expansys.co.uk) but it's showing as discontinued by the manufacturer!!! We looked on ebay and some clever person is selling them for almost 100!!!

    Has anyone else tried to get one in the UK and what success have you had? Does anyone know of any company that repairs these as I can't believe that she'll have to resort to a non-wireless charging phone until the next upgrade in 18months time!!!

    Help please folks :-)

    Cheers

    Hi thanks for the quick reply. I tired mobilefun already (in the UK) and they are out of stock. The other link is to a US store which doesn't look like it ships internationally:-(

    Do you want me to get it for you in the USA and ship it to UK? I can do that provide you cover all costs, I don't want to make a cent, just help someone out. It might not be a bad idea to put a WTB ad in the Marketplace to see if someone has an extra shell. If that doesn't pan out I am more than happy to send you one from the USA. Cheers!

    Wow - that's really helpful of you! Are you able to see a yellow one for sale anywhere in the US and if so can you let me know the cost. If it's reasonable, then I'll send you a PvtMsg and we can go from there.

    You are my new best friend. I've been looking for this for a while. I searched MS store by model number and it didn't come up, but combing through 1020 cases manually turned it up. Thanks again!

    I think that this product is out of production everywhere, in Italy is impossible to find ( unless you find a stock in a shop ) and the online store is useless...very bad...

    Anyone in the US able to help out with a yellow wireless case, would cover all costs for sending to uk. Would really appreciate it now that the house is full of wireless chargers.

    I bought mine from amazon.fr back in September, but they're out of stock now. However, I also adapted an Android USB wireless charging receiver to use with my leather protection case/wallet. I can't post links, but it was product/B00MGLO6HO from UK Amazon site, not available from that page any more but available from other suppliers e.g. ebay. HOWEVER, I had to unpeel the plastic, turn the charging coil at right angles, cut off the excess plastic at the bottom, and shorten the connector flex by folding it (inside the adhesive plastic neck) for it to fit snugly between my phone and the shell. It works very well, and will work with any protective shell. It works even through the leather and internal plastic case of my protection wallet. But if you're not happy modding things, it's not for you. (The USB connector has an elegant gold-colour plating and is flat/discreet.)

    Sounds ideal, I had thought of butchering one earlier and don't mind modding one to suit, I take it's the xsource one? I might have a go at making a shell if possible as I prefer it to be out of a case rather than add bulk to it but can always expirement.

    Hello. Can you sell me broken charging shell cases, if you didn't throw out it yet?
    Sorry for my English...
    I ready to pay it forward.

    If anyone can get one for reasonable price. I would pay for the case and shipping + some amount for the work done. I just don't understand how can they just discontinue products after a year and a half. What's with the contracts and all. They didn't even offer alternative phone in that range, they just given up from 1020. :/

    I went to amazon and bought one of the micro usb qi charging recievers and taped it in my soft gel case... Works like a charm, no hacking or modding other than tapping it down and folding the cord to fit...Tried to post a link but I am new here so I wasnt allowed... I got it for like $7 or 8 plus the soft case was like $5... Just make sure to get the right plug orientation for your phone which for the 1020 is narrow side up
