    OK, so this feature will not work with the wireless charger, only the charging stand (whatever that is - I don't have one)? Thanks.
    You could buy an writable NFC sticker and use the NFC Interactor app to write the above mentioned charge stand tag to it. Stick that next to your charger and you're good to go. It's just a lot less useful to have a clock on a flat surface rather than held up for visibility. Also, not sure if you could put the sticker directly on the top of the charge pad. That might cause some interference but I really don't know. You could stick it to the bottom of the plate though so at least it doesn't get lost.

    Would love a QR code as of course Windows Phone is terrible at notifying people about updates..

    Would've been better to make this available to everyone, even those without nfc stand.

    This seems like a really cool feature. Hopefully it gets pushed out to everyone soon.

    To each his/her own I guess. I can see the use of this feature when docked, almost like a clock with more info (looks like it can have deeper functionality as they improve it). However, I don't want my phone always on displaying this information when not docked. Maybe if they had this info as a live tile when undocked, then ok.

    When the screen is black Nokia had this feature on their Symbian and MeeGo devices were it displayed clock, messages and such all the time on the AMOLED screen. Naturally this will only work on AMOLED screens as it's the only way the battery takes almost no hit.

    I would not mind if Nokia brought that feature back someday.

    I think its possible on other types of screens. My Samsung d500 had that feature, and it didn't have amoled screen.

    Was wondering what that Accessories update was. This is pretty dang awesome! Finally a useful function for the NFC on the charging stand... it took forever to open any other apps. Having this weather+calender load just makes so much sense.

    Also for anyone who is worried about killing battery, overheating or auto-restart/auto-turn off... you can still lock your screen normally!

    Not working on my Nokia wireless charging stand. And nobody seems to have an explanation. I have the latest Accessories update and NFC is on.

    Supposedly with NFC on and the phone on the charging stand, you're just supposed to navigate to Settings > Accessories and see the charging stand listed. It's not recognizing it for me.. :(

    Did no one read the instructions with the stand? The NFC spot isn't on the charging pad itself but on the stand that holds it up. There's an NFC logo there.

    You have to touch the BASE of the stand with the phone not the charging plate back. That's how It works.

    I programmed one NFC Tag with NFC interactor using "Nokia Accessories" as a tag and attached it to the back side of my Philips wireless charger. Works nicely.

    My opinion of this stand so far..nothing particularly positive to note:
    - Phone gets hot. not sure if it's the wireless charging or the screen remaining on
    - Capacative buttons stay backlit for some reason making it utterly useless as a night clock
    - Need to accept every single time you tap the NFC tag
    - Screen saver is pretty bare. Would like to see notifications just like the lock screen for new emails, messages, missed calls and calendar appointments

    I'm actually relaying all of this in the feedback part, available in the settings for the stand.
