    can i transfer files using nfc beam towards my samsung s3 phones, how does it doesnt work?


    1. Joao Rostli

      – Enable nfc on both phones.
      – S-beam app (via wifi) must be disabled on Samsung phone! Because Sony phones don’t have S-beam.
      – First try something very small, nfc will transfer without connection handover to bluetooth.
      – Android beam (via bluetooth) needs O.S. 4.1 or newer.
