WPCentral Question

Does anyone know if there is going to be a TRUE wireless charger available soon for the Nokia Lumia 1520 that DOES NOT require this idiotic charger back plate which must be attached to the phone??? I've heard that Microsoft may be coming out with something by the end of September. It can't come soon enough for me to have a TRUE wireless charging phone that you simply lay on a charger plate MINUS any clumsy attachments!!!!

If you are trying to see something 'True' coming on AT&T...may be you will have to wait for their mercy. At least for now they are not supporting 'Truth' & normally ppl blame MS for that.

The international 1520 has built-in Qi wireless charging like the 920 and many other devices.

The AT&T 1520 had wireless charging likely forcibly removed by AT&T themselves, meaning you get shafted because AT&T wants to retard adoption of the standard competing with the one it now backs. (PMA)
It can afford to do that because carriers have all the cards here in the US.

Best solution? Picking up an unlocked 1520, because by sticking with AT&T phones you're at their mercy.

I'm puzzled by methods that require a jacket for the charging. What's the point?

The AT&T 1520 needs a jacket for its standard. There have been several Lumias that needed a jacket for Qi charging.

My wife's Note 2 is getting a special coil pack that plugs in beneath the back cover so it can get Qi charging... That's a bit better.

Is it to cut cost on the device? Is it to pump up accessory sales? Both?

I'm spoiled from having webOS phones (Pre 2 and Veer) that just charged wirelessly when plonked down on a touchstone. I'm happy to have that convenience again. I never would have bought the jacket to charge my 925 wirelessly. I think it looks stupid walking around with that on like it's a case. It's not a case, it doesn't cover enough, IMHO. I've seen pictures of them and they look... "douchy" if you can understand that. (Just my opinion mind you, my personal aesthetic.) And I certainly never would have put the jacket on, taken it off, put it on, taken it off, put it on...

It's one thing to promote a standard; it's quite another to go in half-a$$ed and cripple it.

Long story short, OP - No. No "true" wireless charging for AT&T 1520. They never put the charging coil in. You could try a DIY, but AT&T ain't gonna come to your house and make it correct for you.

​I am planning to purchase the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual-Sim but before i do, i have a question in mind with regards to Qi Wireless Charging compatibility with the said device.

Microsoft states that the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual-Sim doesn't have built-in Qi Wireless Charging support however, the Lumia 735 with LTE supports Qi Wireless charging.

My Question is...What if you placed a Wireless Charging Shell for the Lumia 735 (LTE) with part# "CC-3086" onto the Lumia 730 Dual-Sim? will the Lumia 730 Dual-Sim gain Qi Wireless Charging support and be compatible with most Qi Wireless Chargers on the market?

i hope someone or even Microsoft/Nokia could help clarify this matter to me, thanks in advance!

we won't know until people get their hands on the 730, but I would assume the 730 just won't have it, since they probably would've said its optional if all it needed was a cover swap.
