Default [Q] Problem with wireless charging.

I have had my G3 for two weeks now and am very happy with it. I dumped my Droid 3, so as you can imagine, it's a huge leap in technology and power to go from the Droid 3 to a G3. I decided I wanted to start doing wireless charging as I saw several others in other forums talking about their shells getting cracked or damaged from excessive force needed to insert the usb cable to charge the phone. It does seem like it could eventually lead to some heavy wear and tear.
So I did some research and a lot of reading, and purchased the following charger and back cover and I can't get wireless charging to work at all. The reviews on the charger appear to be very positive and according to the description on EBAY, the back cover will work on the Verizon G3. The pins appear to line up correctly and I have tried moving the phone all over the mat but no luck. Could one of the apps I have frozen in Titanium Backup be preventing this from working? I basically only froze the crapware stuff. Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be configured? I have an email out to the EBAY person I bought the cover from but have not gotten a response yet. Ideas? Suggestions?

Does your new cover have 4 pins space correctly? I know in the past, some vendors from ebay were sending out only the NFC cases on accident and calling them Qi covers.

The charger you got is a knock off of the TYLT charger, so it could possibly be something with that charger too. If you have a Verizon store near by, Id go down and see if they ahve any Qi chargers setup. Each one I have gone into always had at least one so I could test if my things were working.
Current Device: LG G3 r00ted
Black Moto 360 (Still testing out batt life to see if keeping)

The new back cover definitely has 4 pins and from the best I can tell, they match up. I will definitely try your Verizon store idea when i can find a store.
