So I'll have to appologize for my crap soldering skills, but here's my progress so fay.

I was able to try about five different soldering routes for the ground, but for some reason I can not get it to charge with the plastic piece on that covers the back of the USB port. With the bottom part off I am able to charge at USB speeds without a problem. I worked on this for a few hours this morning and am done for now. I might take another crack at it in a few days. I'll update you guys if I have and success and if I get it all working reliably I'll create a new thread and post everything I had to do.

Here's an album of my really crappy looking soldering job. USB port functions completely without any issues.

Nice pics! That's a better solder job than I could do! Hope you get it figured out.

Default Just Buy T-Mobile LG G3

Or you guys could just buy the T-Mobile version and get a back with wireless charging... or better yet just by the sticker that has been going around for T-Mobile G3s.

That's not a practical solution for most people. Hopefully there will be some form of a solution for everyone else.

I know... but AT&T screwed us over already by insisting that the G3s they carry are only compatible with the PMA standard. At this point, there really is no practical solution.

I agree Att did screw people with that. That's why I have a G3 Cat 6 and the D850. Not everyone can just go get another phone for many reasons. I think that a solution is possible but it will entail a PMA sticker that will fit like the qi. That's the best case scenario this point.
