The contacts on my mini USB are shot. So I purchased the inductive charging back cover and the LG charging pad, as indicated by the verizon website. I put on the cover and set it on the pad. The pad indicates that it is "charging properly" but the phone does not indicate that it's charging, nor does it seem to take a charge. Am I doing something wrong? Is something faulty? Do I need to change a setting?
I am having an identical problem to you, to the point where it's almost uncanny.
I've owned an HTC Incredible 2 for the past 1.5ish years, and the port contacts died, making it unable to charge via the port.
So I bought Verizon's current inductive pad: Amazon.com: LG WCP-700 Portable Power Mat Home and Office Charging Pad: Cell Phones & Accessories (had reviews specifically stating it worked with the Incredible 2, which sold it for me)
The inductive cover I found on Amazon for $5.00: Amazon.com: OEM BRC-550 Wireless Charging Battery Door for HTC Droid Incredible 2 - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories
Am having an identical issue to you, where the pad lights up (as if the phone should be charging), but the phone is not actually charging.
There's a pretty scarce amount of literature on this problem, and the BEST guess I have been able to glean is that the cover may be "fake". It looks good, but supposedly the item number on this "OEM" cover and the official one Verizon sells differ, which might mean that the cover is at fault. But otherwise, I'm stuck too.
If I figure out anything, I'll let you know.
I took it to the Verizon store. They suggested the problem might be due to a crack in the side of the shell, and that it was affecting the internal connections...so I got the phone replace via insurance.
So, obviously the new phone has a new micro-USB, and that works for charging. But I just spent 45 bucks on a wireless charging pad.
Low and behold, it didn't work with the new phone either.
I, too, got the items via Amazon. And the back cover came from hard2find accessories (via Amazon). I wrote them, and they sent me a new cover. And it works! FINALLY. It all works.
Try getting a wireless charging cover. And if that doesn't work, it might be time to replace the phone.
