    Had to return the nokia because it would cycle between charge and disconnect every minute or so. I went to the Verizon store, and their display model did too. The LG pad worked great.

    Got my 910 in the mail today at work. Hooked it up. Works like a peach! No on/off at all and it works through the Otterbox commuter case.

    The Otterbox case gets a little warm...but not hot. Nothing like the heat coming out of my laptop vent.

    This is great news since it means it does work for someone. Can you confirm that you turn off Bluetooth on the DNA, Touch the phone to the JBL and the DNA turns on Bluetooth automatically? If so can you explain exact steps taken? I have tried with my JBL and a demo unit at Verizon without luck. I have also tried two DNA's (sadly first one was dropped...).

    THANKS!

    I have the Otterbox Defender and have been waiting to see if anyone had any luck charging with a case that thick. I found the Nokia on display at ATT, but they had none in stock. I tried it and it worked great. The Verizon store had them in stock and a display to try again a week later. I have been using it for a week now with no problems.

    I charge through the Otterbox Defender. I have a Nokia wireless pad at home, and I made a car dock with another Nokia pad.

    Sorry, just saw this. If you still need it i will search for it.

    Every once and a while my LG will cycle charging off and on. But so far it's not been a problem.

    Love the convenience of it

    Can't find it anymore!


    And now this thing is constantly beeping on and off. It is downright annoying.

    Thinking I may do an rma

    So it's not just me then :) Hmm, constant beeping doesn't sound good (pun intended). Any idea what the trigger is?

    No clue. Unless the unit is just bad.

    I'm not using a case or anything. I make sure it is on there perfectly lined up.

    It's downright annoying as ****! Lol

    I have a barely used Standup model that I am willing to deliver :) Give me a reason to go to the Source and stock up too!

    No beeping what-so-ever.

    Mine went crazy on me the other day for some reason, but unplugging it and plugging it back in fixed the problem.

    I have the nexus wireless charging orb and it works perfect with the dna. Perfect angle and grip. Worth the $75

    Really ! I am quite interested in this. Does the magnet hold the DNA, or do you just have to lean it?

    They're actually aren't any magnets like originally thought, its just a sticky rubber.

    Check out Droid Life's review of it, there's a picture of it with the DNA if you want an idea how it looks.

    Pretty tempted by this myself.. Anyone want a good deal on an Energizer single pad? :p

    I went ahead and placed the order for it, figure I'll take the Energizer pad to work and put it on my desk. Or just put charging pads all over the house.. :p

    Is everyone still doing well with the wireless charging? I just got my Nokia DT-900 today, and so far, it's working wonderfully. Charged up from 60-95% or so in what seemed like a reasonable amount of time (I wasn't really timing it). Doesn't seem to have to be on there too precicely, and it's small and unassuming, fits perfectly on my desk, and the small white charging LED that shows whether or not it's charging is nice as well.

    I use the Nexus Orb at work. Place my phone on it and play Pandora all day long. Perfect angle. I place the phone sideways on it, and it makes a nice desktop display. Love that charger, and may get one for home sometime.
