    Hi all,
    I asked this in another forum too....no answers yet. I shut it off and at some point later I notice it turns itself back on. What is doing this? I do NOT want it on. I don't use it or need it.

    Thanks for your help

    Hello, welcome to the forums! Maybe there's another app forcing NFC to stay on. I'll check around with some Note 5 owners.

    Perhaps Samsung Pay is keeping it on?

    Hi all,
    Thanks for all your help. I shut off NFC but on occasion it turns back on. Samsung Pay is disabled. I only have one home page of very well known common apps like LinkedIn, Flipboard, Open Table, Fandango, Uber, 9 Mail, and Type Mail. I make no payments through any of these apps at all. I'm a very basic kinda user and keep my phones stock, uncluttered, cache emptied, and fast....

    Just can't figure out why it would turn on by itself

    The only thing I can think of is your putting it against some kind of magnet when you set it down on whatever surface your putting it on... That would cause the NFC to come on

    Seems like you tried everything else. Maybe a factory reset would do the trick, good luck

    Do you have Google Wallet installed? The new update forces NFC on.

    Are you placing the phone near anything else such as a computer? I found that NFC will turn on, on my Note 5 or S7 Edge if I place it on the palm rest of my MacBook Pro.

    Do you have a case that has magnets in it? That can do it, as well.

    In case u still get the forced on. There is a option in samsung phones thst makes it search for nearby divices like bluetooth and switches on those services automaticly. Swap that off and nothing from outside can activate it

    Im having this issue with my s7 edge. Ive done a factory reset on it, uninstalled android pay, turned off all wifi and bluetooth scanning disabled NFC switched off android beam done everything. I have mine in a Tech21 Case which does have a magnet in for the case to close shut . Only apps i use are a couple of games and news and weather apps apart from the usual social media apps. Its really annoying once its disabled it shouldnt be able to come back on!
