A few days ago we learned that the Verizon version of the HTC 8X would gain wireless charging, but it looks like if you’re going to stick with Big Red, you’ll be giving up group messaging on the 8X. Currently there’s no word on why the feature has been changed, but Group messaging is a great way to keep your texts from spreading out all over the place. WPCentral speculates that Verizon’s network may not be equipped to handle the feature, which sounds like as good an explanation as any.
Currently there’s no word on whether or not any of Verizon’s other Windows Phones will have the feature disabled, but if the network speculation turns out to be true, we’re betting they will. That means the Lumia 822 and the Samsung ATIV Odyssey could potentially have this feature disabled as well. If you’re a Verizon customer, are you okay with the trade off of wireless charging for the lack of group messaging?
