So I don't think anyone has looked into this yet, but does anyone know if we would be able to import a European backplate in order to enable wireless charging on the US versions? If the quick circle case is all that's needed to enable it I would think that this is another solution as well for those of us that aren't interested in that case.

I'm waiting on my Verizon version and if one of these OEM backplates could be purchased for cheap on ebay.co.uk or a similar site I'd be willing to test this as an option.

I briefly looked into it, starting with how much it would cost me, but when I saw they were going for $60 on eBay, I gave up. LOL!

The charging contacts are in different locations on the international version than the Korean and US versions so it will not work. We have to wait. 😢
