    I ordered the wireless charging coil for the LG G3 through Ali Express and received it today. I installed it and found that it did not work with either of my wireless charging pads.

    What charger are you using? It seems that the G3 is picky with chargers.

    Amazon prime just got a charging sticker in stock. My friend bought one and he says it works perfect with his Tmobile and official LG G3 base. Ordered it and got it in 2 days. No having to wait 30 days to ship from China. Just look up LG G3 wireless charging attachment on Amazon.

    Nice...is it this one?

    $19.99 seems kinda steep to me. I'd almost want to pay an extra $10-17 to get a complete cover replacement.

    That's what I ended up doing, getting the whole back plate. It works when the phone is placed in exactly the right spot, otherwise it tells me it's not charging fast enough.

    That may have to do with the charger. I have two chargers, and one requires precise placement, and the other I can put on as sloppily as I want and it works perfectly.

    Yeah my friend tried on 3 different bases and Official LG base worked flawlessly while the others required precise placement but mostly resulted in slow charging.

    Good thing about Amazon is, their return/refund process is extremely easy.

    The Verizon G3 apparently has NFC already. Upon removing the back cover you can see the antenna, along with 2 of the 4 pad connection points being present. Can this sticker be applied over top of that without having to remove anything already there?

    This sticker replaces the stock sticker.

    It looks like it might be somewhat difficult to remove. It appears that the plastic has been melted/fused to attach it. Did you simply use an xacto knife and cut it out?

    You must remove the old sticker. Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T all have NFC already. The only thing missing is the other 2 gold pins that enables wireless charging.
    It's not difficult to remove and it's not melted/fused. It's a sticker. To remove the old NFC sticker, start from the top right corner (if going by the picture, its the top left) where the 2 gold pins are. Use your fingernail, peel it up and just rip it off working all the way around.

    I installed the QI sticker chips to 2 Verizon reps, and 2 other customers in addition to mine as well. All came off.

    There is no point in being gentle with the old NFC sticker. It won't be usable and you will have no need for it. So just man-handle it and just rip it off.
