Unknown Sources affect Android Pay?

A

AC Question

For some reason my Android Pay doesn't work. I just remembered I had my "Unknown Sources" turned on. Will that cause Android Pay not to work?

Its not android pay but when I got my S5 NFC didnt work because I cut my old sim card and installed it. I needed to get a sim that was NFC compatible.

Your sim card could potentially be the problem.

That is device-dependent. In the case of you S5, I think the NFC chip was in the SIM card. Other devices, such as Motorolas and the Nexus devices, use an NFC chip on the logic board rather than in the SIM card.
