    too white for me :)

    silly VZW, you have to sign into VZW page, then click on the link he posted... there site is always weird like that

    I've seen that one for 70 bucks at places... my question is what is rthe difference between that one and this: Amazon.com: LG Electronics WCP-700 Wireless Charging Pad - Bulk Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I will be honest, maybe I'm just a hard sleeper, but mine only beeps when I put it on the charger, I haven't heard it beep after that...

    That is great to hear. Some have reported the same. Others say it beeps every few minutes. Sounds like you got a good one, great !

    I went to the local Verizon store today to try and get the wireless charger. God I hate that place. They wanted to put me on the list and after 20 minutes I got a salesman who went in the back to see if they were in stock. He came up with a portable charger instead. I explained that I wanted the wireless charger so I don't have to mess with that stupid port cover. He then proceeded to tell me that he couldn't find a wireless charger in his order system and that I'd be better off with the portable charger. Damn, I could only shake my head as I left the store. I fear that I have bought another phone that won't be fully supported by Verizon (my last phone was a Blackberry Storm). I have no solutions here - just wanted to vent.

    I then went to Best Buy and was told that they don't carry wireless chargers anymore because they cause your battery to bulge and possibly explode. I left before my head exploded - my phone seems fine though.

    Believe it or not, I had a similar experience, the CSR went in the back, was back there for a while, came back out, was like I don't think we have any. Except there were three hanging from a rack in the iPhone accessories (where I had seen them in the first place).

    Beeps? My hearing is either going or mine is not beeping. But who knows. I need reading glasses now may need a hearing aid. LOL :D

    As far as getting real help in a store I gave up on them. Most seem to be clueless about 99% of the time on anything. Sad. So glad I am retired. It seems to be the norm in allot of jobs now days. Employees not giving a crap enough to really learn their job. :(

    If I can't find what I need online I just say screw it anymore. :smokingsomb:

    Working great, really simple. I put it on the charger around 11pm, and when I wake up at 4:30am, its charged. (Man I need more sleep).

    My Verizon store in San Francisco had an black Nokia wireless charger on display. I set my DNA on it and it started charging immediately. Unfortunately there are none in stock anywhere in San Francisco. It was super sleek looking and smaller than my DNA. I would pay 49.99 for it. Hopefully the Nexus charging orb comes out soon. I would buy either one.

    This one may not quite as cool as the nexus charging orb but it will turn the DNA into a bedside clock very nicely. And with the NFC pairing, it will automatically switch to the clock! So cool.

    Note: Ignore the yellow pillow one at the beginning, I'm talking about the stand:

    also, is there any way to turn off the "wireless charging on/off" notifications?

    The Energizer wireless charging pad showed yesterday. Charged last night. Instantly started. This will do the trick for me at home for sure. ;)

    I have read somewhere that if a phone if left charging once fully charged it negatively impacts battery life...... any concerns here as the mighty DNA has a battery which may not be replaced??

    I've ordered a case for my DNA and I wonder how critical the material is with regard to wireless charging? It doesn't specifically claim to be compatible so I wonder if there's a way to figure it out other than getting the charging pad and trying it?

    If you can actually find that Nokia charging stand I'd love to know where. Only place I can find it online is Amazon and they've been sold out for a long time. There is another similar charging stand made my. Japanese firm and only sold in Japan. I would order it but they don't ship to the US. I desperately want two of these upright Qi charging stands.

    You can get them in an AT&T store, or online from AT&T. I ordered a few from here. They work well.

    AWESOME. Thanks so much. I had no idea that AT&T was stocking them. Very much appreciated. I just ordered two.

    It all being so new I figure there is only one way to know for sure. Try it! :)

    Don S, thanks for the ATT tip! I found one of the last two available today in all of San Francisco. ($69.00) This thing is awesome and has even a smaller footprint than I thought it would. Sure it will probably cost half as much in 6 months but I wanted it immediately. :)

    No problem, I saw it there after tons of searches. You are right, these are hard to get. They are small too. Mine is working very well. I do have to say it charges somewhat slowly on it IF I leave the screen on (like with a clock app) ..

    Order it through the web site?

    I get crappy service in most of my house, so I'm going to put the charge pad in the small good signal zone and fire up the bluetooth connection to the home phone.

    As much as it pains me, I might have to go into an ATT store and look at one of these, I really want a wireless charger, and one that stands would be awesome.

    I dug around through Google and found an article describing various Qi charging solutions, and they mentioned a device only available on the Amazon Japan website that looks great. I tried ordering it to be shipped here but couldn't get through the process. It looks great:
