    Default Skyrocket NFC on ICS

    I just upgraded to ICS on my Skyrocket, and tried to use NFC with another skyrocket. When I touched the two devices there was a sound and vibration but no transfer to the other phone. Am I doing something wrong??

    you suppose to tap the screen on the content you want to transfer, when you bring both devices together the content (a webpage picture etc..) will shrink, you tap on it and it should be transfered right onto another device

    I've only had my Skyrocket for a few months but I have a suggestion. Have you checked if NFC is on? Go to Settings, under Wireless & Network click More, and ensure NFC and Android Beam are on. My understanding is it should work after that, if not, hopefully someone with more experience will chime in

    Is there a specific app you have to use to do this? When I try tapping the content nothing happens.

    I brought this up on another thread, but has anyone tried to use virtual wallets (ex: Google Wallet, PayPass Wallet)?

    any device (phone tablet computer underground/subway turnstiles, shopping centers etc. etc.) that are NFC enabled. for the phone I believe yes, it has to have an ICS or JB on it, the brand doesn't matter

    google wallet will not work on this phone. due to ATT restrictions (it does work however on Galaxy Nexus on ATT network) idk about other wallets...

    Ah...if I recall, ATT is supposed to bring out their own virtual wallet, so maybe they will have phones turned on to it then. Haven't heard any timetable though.

    I must be doing something wrong. Absolutely nothing happens when I try this. My wife has a note and they are both NFC enabled. Is there a specific process to follow?
