    Just picked up the AT&T Lumia 830. Loving it so far! But I really would like to get an orange colored backplate.
    Anyone got a link from a US-based retailer that offers one for sale?
    Thanks in advance.

    You can get them on eBay. I ordered a white and orange off of eBay from a reseller in the UK

    It might be the exclude list is a bit wonky, send a message & ask. (reason i suspect it's wonky is they exlude UK & ireland aswell, which very few UK based sellers do, if any)

    I'd love to see a picture of the dark metal with the orange case. Post a pic when you get one!

    I ordered white, green, and black from this reseller (got the phone in orange) and I'm in the U.S. That was a while back though. It didn't say "doesn't ship to the U.S." at the time.

    Anyway, the seller is good at responding to messages on Ebay, so give that a try like Tellus82 said.

    Looks pretty nice. Are there any other OEM colors besides the black, green, and orange?

    White. It would be great to see 3rd party cases in other colors/patterns.

    Found the orange and white back covers on eBay. Seller will ship to U.S. These listings end tomorrow, but I'm guessing the seller will relist. Here are the links:

    Genuine Nokia Lumia 830 Orange Battery Cover with Qi 00812N0 | eBay

    Genuine Nokia Lumia 830 White Battery Cover with Qi 00812N2 | eBay

    Definitely getting the orange one, and I'm considering getting the white too. How do you think the white back would look with the dark frame?

    Just as an update, I too ordered one of the Orange shells for my AT&T Lumia 830. Unfortunately, there are problems:

    1) If I use this shell with my DT-900 wireless charger, it omits a high-pitched hum. The connection-coverage area seems to be smaller than the AT&T supplied shells.
    2) The Orange shell does NOT work at all with my CR-200 Wireless Car holder. I assume this is due to a variation in the placement of the connection of the shell to the back of the device.

    So, it looks fantastic, but may not be all that practical, depending on your needs. I had to go back to rocking the AT&T supplied green shell.

    On the po int of your car charger there are problems here. I have all 4 back plates for my L830 and NONE of them work correctly with my CR-201 car charger. Charging is intermittent at best. I have started a thread on Nokia support forums under Lumia please chime in there on this point. We need to get this fixed by Microsoft.

    Like I said: If I use the green or black AT&T supplied shells, my CR-200 works 100% of the time. I've never had it fail. And I used it yesterday. Sorry, man. Doesn't sound like Microsoft's problem.

    I am in UK. I wonder if the AT&T shell has different or more windings in the coil. If this were the case then it would explain why you can charge all of the time in the CR-200.

    Remember: The AT&T shells are wired for BOTH the Qi and PMA wireless chagrining standard. They are technically different. The non-AT&T shells are only Qi charging capable. So in your situation, if you use the shell's that came with your 830, they should work OK with the CR-200. They will line-up properly with the charger and your phone.

    Or at least that's what I would assume from my experience.

    This I know and that's why I say that the coils must be different for you and indeed the Qi coil could be slightly higher up the back plate. I am techy and my plates will simply not work with the charger; none of the 4 I have. Without peeling off the coil covers could you look to see if the coil has a higher point and / or a lower point between the AT plate and the other one you bought. I still believe this could turn out to be the issue here. My L830 charges ok in my DT-900 and 901. Sorry for thread hijack too.

    So, are these charging plates only available from non-official resellers? No official MS/ Nokia outlets to order these accessories?

    Seems to be only this way. I have all colours mow but they do seem genuine and a point here is that the original supplied with the phone will not charge with car charger. All will however charge with the other charging plates.

    Thanks. But how odd that MS/ Nokia would not have the accessories easily available.

    That's typical of them. How difficult is it for MS yo get the covets to market. Its a no brainer as they are already being manufactured for the phones but no they can't get them into the accessories supply chain; duh.

    just got my order from a seller in China on bay.
    New Back Cover Battery Door for Nokia Lumia 830 Orange | eBay

    the battery cover looks original as far as I can tell and fits perfectly. Qi is working still.

    The seller increased the price since I ordered it. I got mine for $16.91. Phone looks great with orange. Shipping from China took about 10 days.

    Here are images of the stock green one and the orange one from ebay.

    Be aware that, to my knowledge (and as you're seeing), the replacement covers on eBay are not compatible with the US/ATT version of the 830. If you don't use wireless charging, then no big deal - but if you do, those back plates are going to disappoint you.

    I ended up swapping the coil from the included green cover to my replacement white cover. Just used a hair dryer to melt the adhesive and slowly/carefully peeled the coil away from the plastic. Re-heated when applying to the destination shell and used woodworking clamps to press it into place. Works great now.

    Aware of that and already checked the qi charging (see post above) and works as advertised on my US-ATT L830. I have no issues. If you are in the US and you can wait 10-14days I can recommend that seller.
