    Default NFC doesn't work after 4.4 update.

    So I was talking to a friend about NFC and how it works since he got a new phone so I thought I would show him. We touched the phones and mine vibrated as it should and he was able to click/share. Mine then said Unfortunately, NFC has stopped. I tried with my wife's phone and same thing. NFC tags also now worky. Any ideas. I am not rooted, no special launchers.

    has your device been rooted or anything? I would go into settings<apps<swipe over to all apps< go to NFC service clear data and force stop. try again from there.

    So I tried your trick and rebooted, and still get that message :" Unfortnatly NFC service has stopped " that keeps popping out.
    this is my wife's phone and it did this after she accepted the jelly bean update from sprint. we have stock phone not rooted.

    I would try to look up how to flash a factory image but without wiping data. It's pretty simple to do from what I hear. Just a change in the script file. Outside of that I would try a factory reset or flashing the factory image with the wipe (but that wipes everything out including any saved pics etc.)

    I used Wallet to charge a coke 12/22 w/o problems, so NFC works in KK 4.4.2 on my N4.

    I have the same problem. I can torn on the nfc, but when I come back to use with a nfc program it doesn't work. But when I come back again to the nfc administration it is off again.
