Would it be better to buy the T-mobile variant and unlock it for the Qi and would you get 4g LTE?

Buy the TMobile one because it has qi and an unlocked BL. You will get LTE in ATT as far as I know.

Or just wait another week or so for PMA wireless charging sticker chips.

So say i have a d850. But my back plate is one that supports qi like a T-Mobile back plate. That won't work?

I paid 4.99 for a T-Mobile backplate with nfc for my d850 from eBay.

Qi will not work on the Att model using the back cover. The NFC will still work but no qi.

I wonder if qi would work if i sacrifice my micro usb with a universal micro usb Qi charge receiver that uses a micro usb slot

I rather lose the micro usb

Anyone tried the PMA + NFC stickers from Amazon
I see there are now a couple of PMA + NFC stickers to replace the NFC only sticker on the back cover of the AT&T G3 listed on Amazon.

Has anyone tried these? They are around $19 - $23. A new back with the stickers already installed is $39.95.

My only concern would be the bulge factor. I've seen the posts of people taking the stickers off the LG circle case for the D850 and put them onto the stock back and there was a bulge from the metal disk. I can buy one of the PMA + NFC stickers for around $20 and the Powermat charging cradle for about $10. So for $30 I could have wireless charging. I just don't want the back to bulge.

It will bulge no matter what. The center magnet causes it to bulge. I, as well as a couple others, drilled a hole in the back plate for the magnet to sit in and it almost eliminates the bulge. You can cover it up with a skin or sticker or just do like me and keep a case on. After the modification I have no problem charging through my Diztronic tpu case.

I am using the $39.95 back plate from Amazon.

Edit: I think the price has dropped to $30 or lower.
