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.

different back plate
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.

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.

So I got the case with the sticker chip for PMA already installed. NFC works fine but unless I remove the sticker, hold in in place on the contacts and try the powermat it will not charge at all. Not even through a thin tape without any cover. It only works if I hold it and place it directly to the mat. The seller has sent me a new chip to try that will arrive tomorrow so we shall see if it was just a bad chip or what. I spent a lot of time trying to get this to work it was making me nuts! I went as far as to cut a hole out of the back of the stock plate to where the whole sticker showed and only left enough space to tape the edges in place still won't do anything. I'll update on the new one once I get it tomorrow
