Bought a Nokia Lumia 920? Here is how to claim your free wireless charger
Once the calendar shows that it has been 14 days since the purchase of your Nokia Lumia 920, and you can't return it, Nokia will be happy to send you your free wireless charger for the device. The Qi powered charger is available from the sourcelink, but you do need to fill out the virtual form on the site. Don't worry, this isn't going to give you a flashback to that high school algebra test that you failed miserably. Nokia merely needs to know your phone's unique IMEI number which can be found on the side of the box that the phone came in. What?! You didn't save the box? Ah, that's ok. Just press *#06# and the IMEI number for your phone will appear on the screen.

Nokia has already designed the form to show possible dates of purchase that go back 14 days or longer. Nice job there. Where we have to laugh is with the color choice which is either red or white. After you indicate your first choice, the form asks for your second color choice. Hmmm. That's a tough one. Still, we can't be too hard on the Finnish handset manufacturer because after all, they are giving you this wireless charger for free.

How can I get one without buying one of those undoubtedly great Lumias? :) That's a tough one.

You wont be needing one since no other Phone/Device/Hardware supports it :)

Yeah? I think you're wrong. My HTC Droid DNA will lay on it quite nicely. It uses a standard technology called Qi.

I believe any device that uses the Qi-standard wireless charging tech will be able to use it. Supposedly Nexus4 and HTC DNA will meet that standard, and there are also shells/accessories to enable the feature in other phones.

it's not a stupoid question. The color is very importand. It's the first thing that ours eyes and brain recceives about some object. The first impressions are mosly the ones that say: buy or don't buy. :))) The color is linked to the form and that is why some objects looks bether in red and other in yellow and so on, And that question is very very importand!

I think you misunderstood a little. They were sarcastic in the article. Because you have only 2 choices, and when you pick your first choice, then the second is obvious. They didn't say it's stupid to choose your color.

Also that there's only 2 colors. One thing I don't like about my Lumia 900's charging/data cable is that it's white. It's high-capacity, so it charges fast, but it looks silly, and, honestly, a bit apple-ish. I bought some cyan cables online that match the color perfectly, but aren't high-capacity.

Good question, Credo. You brought up a point. This is for the UK ONLY. Terms and conditions: "Open to residents of the UK and Republic of Ireland...". PhoneArena should check the facts before posting. Shame they don't always do.

So any strength to questions about 920's battery life. Nokia had to give me a new N9 because the processor went into melt down mode. Reason I prefer phones you can pull the back off.

Owlets right its for UK and Ireland residents only. Furthermore only for those who purchased promotional 920s or 820s from certain retailers and got a unique code. Kinda bummed about that.

Can anyone tell if I can claim free charger if I buy from Rogers Canada?

Is Rogers Canada in the UK or Ireland? If it's in one of those places, then yes.
