I have a new LG3  . I contacted LG Canada  and they told me the phone is QI compliant . I Ordered a Qi  circle case and qi charger and cannot get wireless charging. I did some research and can you tell me if this information is WRONG. Seems some models are only Power Mat compliant.  Could you get me the correct information on your phones please.  Or has someone got wireless charging to work on an MTS LG3

Hi Albert. We have heard back from our LG business contact, and I apologize ahead of time as i don't think this is good news based on your purchase of a Qi case and charger. It appears that
the Canadian version of the G3 is based on the AT&T platform, which supports wireless charging using the PMA (Power Matters Alliance) standard for wireless charging. The confusion seems to stem from the fact that all other U.S. carriers of the product do use the Qi Wireless charging standard.

So the MTS G3 is wireless charging compatible, but you would need to purchase a PMA charger such as a Duracell Powermat, plus an LG PMA quick circle folio case.  This case replaces the standard back cover, with a back cover that has the necessary contacts required for wireless charging. It also appears, based on feedback from our contact, that this accessory is not available from Canadian retailers, but can be sourced on-line.  For example, below is a link to the accessory on AT&T’s website.

Albert, sorry for the delaying in clarifying this situation for you. If you have any other questions please let me know.
