Default S3 not charging wirelessly

Hello all,

I had the nexus 4 before and moved to galaxy s3
So I have the new device for like a week now.

When I had the nexus 4 I used to charge it wirelessly with this charger:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Qi-Wireless-...item5d44f9545c

when putting the s3 on top of the charger It doesn't charge.
Am I missing something?

Should I enable anything on the s3 in order it to charge?

Please advise,
Thanks.

No, i don't think GS3 supports it. I know nexus 4 does but GS3, i don't think it does.

Never seen them on General or Q&A in this forum .

A 10 second Google search shows I9300 wireless charging with a purchased receiver that is fitted on top of the battery .

Does not come with the receiver out of the box.

It goes between the battery and the battery cover, you can see the contacts next to the battery.

Does the charger acknowledge the presence of the phone? I once had an issue with the contacts of the charging coil not lining up with the phone's receptacles. I could hear a *beep* when placing my phone on the charger, confirming my charger was communicating with the charge coil, but the phone didn't start charging. Peeling the charge coil from the back cover and realigning it with the receptacles fixed the issue.

The S3 does not come with the "receiver" you have to purchase one, and as JerseyFF stated it goes between the battery and the back cover.
Search ebay, I'm sure you will find them.
I have been wireless charging my S3 for the last year...
