    Smart, Very Smart. Already they have a dummy reason for not having NFC, now they will add this also(if true).:eek:

    Keep in mind that this will not give you a complete implementation of NFC. It is only to be used with the carriers' specific payment solution. No other capabilities will work.

    This is great news.
    The OP2 comes with a dual sim slot so you can use your normal sim and add another sim just for NFC.
    Thats one less things haters have to hate about

    At first I also didn't believed that it was possible but then I googled it. You may try searching google with keyword "nfc with sim".

    Yeah. I also never used it because in India NFC is not implemented as payment system. It may take time for complete implementation of NFC in India.

    and yet another NFC thread where education is required...

    if only things in life where this simple.....

    It's propriety to the network you are on and relies on the provider having the capability and an appropriate payment mechanism. So no it doesn't fix NFC issues in the OP2.

    Secondly, it only offers one feature of NFC; Payments.

    Additionally, the uptake is marginal compared to NFC itself. Only one UK provider as an example supports NFC Sims and you have to get a phone from them and the sim under contract.

    OK, but it simply isn't the same as having a proper NFC chip/system on the phone hardware itself natively.

    You can get stickers/labels and other such things which enable you to make wireless type payments. In the UK Barclaycard offer you to put a sticker on the back of your phone and "tap" it to make payments for stuff. But as I'm trying to explain, it just isn't the same, you couldn't use the SIM card or a sticker to use it to connect to a wireless speaker system.

    True but it's still better than not having any NFC at all

    The problem is, the carriers don't have NFC sim cards. Your carrier has to support it or it doesn't work. Your article is from 2011 or 2012 and it's still not implemented in carrier sim's. Plus this thread gas been made several times already. A quick search and you would have known that.

    Well, as far as I'm aware you can't use a NFC SIM to connect to speakers... someone might correct me :)

    I guess it depends on what you want NFC for. If you use it to automate tasks like turning on Bluetooth and switching profiles when you get in your car, this doesn't help at all. If you are just looking for a payment solution then yes, this gives you an option (although it will not support the upcoming standard for Android Pay).
