    Depends on which version of the phone you have, and also possibly which carrier.

    If the OP has a T-Mobile phone, as his post suggests, then the answer is that the phone doesn't come stock with Qi capability. You can add it by buying a Qi equipped replacement back cover, such as:

    Amazon.com: lg g3 qi cover: Cell Phones & Accessories

    (Make sure it says Qi is supported. I'm not sure everything returned by that search does.)

    Or by replacing the stock NFC sticker in your current back with something like this:

    LG G3 VS985 LS990 D851 Qi Wireless Charging NFC Antenna Sticker Replacement | eBay

    I used that sticker. Peeling and scraping the old sticker out of the original back was kind of a pain, but worth it given the cost savings.

    This approach will work with T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon. AT&T phones don't support Qi charging at all, since AT&T has invested in a competing standard.
