    NFC= Not F***ing Caught have u got a link for the security thing that happened man?
    LMAO. I don't have it on hand but if you Google it out should pop up. Think it happened Wednesday. The dude hacked the phone using nfc and actually took control of it. No thanks. I was pretty shocked to be honest. Thought they would have had better protection. It's videos of the guy doing it. He works for a security firm I believe.

    Getting a metal battery cover is really not necessary considering you can just turn NFC off..no one can hack you via NFC, if you're concerned about that, if it's off.

    If one reads the complete presentation about the hacking of NFC one sees that while it is possible to do in very controlled circumstances it is not something that can be done in the field under actual user conditions.
    I for one am not giving up cell phones, computers, banking cards, card readers at checkouts, etc. simply because any electronic communication is susceptible to hacking. But to each his own.
