So I just got my LG G3 and from looking through the forums I have gotten the impression that that at&t version(which what I now have) had its wireless charging taken out from its back. So I have looked through to see what the back should look like for qi wireless charging and have compared it to my back and it looks the same. I may be just ignorant so I just wanted to see if anyone would know if my back supports wireless qi charging.

That just has NFC.

If it had charging it would have 4 pins on the case. 2 for NFC and then 2 for charging.

I've attached a picture of the EU version that supports QI, this has 4 connectors on the backside, I haven't seen the version that you have before, not even at the press conference

No - EU has QI as standart, this is why its a little thicker in spec.
In EU you have the choise between 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB.

This is from a mail i recieved from LG (translated from Danish):

Dear LG ambassador
*
We have just been informed about new information on the LG G3. The new info is that the thickness and weight of LG G3 has been updated. The new thickness is 9.3mm and a weight of 153.7 g (previously: 8.9 mm and 149g.)

The change is due to QI being standart in EU models
