Yeah I agree. To be fair, they will replace it. Just with a pos refurb.

I saw this problem when I bought the phone.
This was my solution. $18.90 for the charging pad and the receiver. Works great with my Neo Hybrid case.

How difficult was it to install? Any connectivity issues, e.g., WiFi , BT or phone?

Does this work with a case on the phone, or is it rather direct contact? I have a plastic kickstand case that goes in a holster. It's thin, but I'm not sure if it'll work.

Dirt Simple.
The receiver is very thin and lays on top of the battery. No bulge in the case.

No connectivity issues. I live on Wifi. Does get warm once in awhile during recharge. Gives a little musical tone when it locks on and then the screen goes into a rainbow animation. It is sensitive to the position on the pad.

NeoHybrid is a very thin case. Works great.

You just have to take out the bottom left screw and it pops right out.
