On eBay, you can buy a wireless charging back for your S3 that works with Palm Touchstones. When I ordered mine, the seller shipped it shortly after my payment went through on 10/30/2012 and it arrived 11/08/2012.
The wireless back is on the left featuring “Samsung” and the original back featuring Verizon marking B.S. is on the right.
Here we have the backs flipped over. On the left is the wireless back with its mysteriously covered wires and do-dabs. On the right is the original cover.
Here is a close up of the wireless cover’s connectors.
Here is a close up of the wireless back. It’s a perfect fit on the phone. Very snug.
When you have successfully placed the device on your Touchstone, your phone will let you know that it’s charging wirelessly. This prompt stays up for several seconds but will eventually dismiss itself.
If you hastily put the phone down and don’t line up the magnets correctly, this prompt will show up and disappear endlessly until you line it up.
Here is my battery indicator happily working its way back to 100%.
Here is a side view of the phone on the Touchstone.
As you can imagine, this does not work with an Otterbox Commuter case.
It also doesn’t work with a cheap-o silicone cover.
The wireless back does scratch pretty easy and I hate having my phone so naked. I’ll probably be ordering a skin for it.
