    Default NFC?

    Does the VZW version of the Note 2 have NFC? Their website says that it doesn't. But, they say it has S Beam. Doesn't S Beam use NFC?

    Seeing how even the GN has nfc I'm sure it does haven't seen a site list it as not having nfc.

    Most definitely has NFC. S-Beam is Samsung branded NFC use.

    Default Re: NFC?

    When you compare Galaxy Note 2 to Galaxy S3, Verizon lists S3 as "Yes" and Note 2 as "No" for NFC.

    I couldn't begin to understand why that would be, so I'm hoping it's just a mistake, but so far it's looking like a "No" is being specified by Verizon...can someone prove otherwise?! This is THE number one feature I want to switch to Android...may end up with an S3 if the Note 2 doesn't have NFC...and I really want the Note 2!

    That's why I started the thread.
