NFC problem solved?

    I just found this on the interweb


    I've been thinking that a NFC via Bluetooth solution could be a life saver for the OnePlus fans that really need the NFC.

    Though I must say that i'm pretty sure the video is fake, a modded back with NFC via Bluetooth doesn't seem that preposterous to me.

    Or what about a key chain. then you could easily add a small battery if needed.
    Any takers?

    well I was thinking an android wear watch with NFC would make it a none issue and the second gen android wear stuff should be coming soon with Android Pay support.

    okay, now how does the sticker transfer the data to the telephone? those stickers are for ''one command'' they are not NFC devices themselves. im gonna grab some popcorn while some admin closes this thread

    I would like to entertain your thoughts by saying Bluetooth tech is basically NFC but named Bluetooth you could use a Bluetooth device to simulate the same thing technically because it's a peer to peer as well I know where this guy is going with this and it actually would be a plausible workaround

    Did you even read? It was just a video that gave voice to something I've thought about.

    To what end should they close it?

    I did thought about it yesterday, and thought that i should develop an APK that would fake blutooth into acting like an NFC antenna, but two things came into my mind

    1) bluetooth is between 2 bluetooth devices, it requires both to have this feature on it while NFC is a ''scanner'' that interpretates (sorry if spelled incorrectly) codes generated in a small field. this is why you can have NFC cards and chips but not Bluetooth enabled cards.

    2) I have no idea how to make apps im just a health specialist if your back hurts you can come see me but i barely know how to root a device.

    Another alternative is to use an NFC enabled sim card for certain things like payments.

    There is a company here called "Semble" that has just started distributing them for free as we can't get apple pay or google pay/wallet in NZ

    I saw it last week, the sticker has a code attached to it, each phones with NFC can scan that code and decide what it does with it. The thing with the OPT that lacks isnt the ability to be a code, its the ability to scan it. for example, I can run my OPO over a NFC sticker and it will show me your personnal business website, but you cant just scan my OPO and make it pop a website because my device is a ''NFC reader'' not an ''NFC code'' what the guy in the video did was to attach an nfc sticker on his phone so now if you scan an NFC reader over it something will happen, but no you cant send pictures from your device through NFC with it, at best you can use it to send one specific data like ''Wi-Fi password'' so that any guest that passes its phone over it will be able to obtain the wifi code

    ^^ basically what he said. But entertaining your discussion, yeah I guess. I was thinking of the NFC smartwatch thing, which I would hope would be a thing.

    With that in mind, the NFC might not even be an issue when android pay comes around. It might even explain why OP excluded it. They've been rumored to work on a OneWatch.

    I think that makes more sense then excluding the cheapest part you could to save on cost when you know it is about to become an import feature. It would make the OneWatch if they are working on more then just a luxury item.

    Ok, dude. I get it! F*ck the sticker.
    We might be on to something with the NFC enabled watch though.

    the problem with this is that the system still does not detect NFC as itself, so it can not be used natively by the OS as it should.

    In the UK nothing really for NFC payments. But barcleys do bpay which which comes in keyfobs bracelets an stickers. I have a nexus 6 an I took the NFC chip from a bpay bracelet an put in my spigen case an I use that to do contactless payments

    there's no such thing as NFC sim card. Get your facts right from once and stop spreading false information. Sim cards that provide info via NFC are just that, they provide info, there's no reading and writing of tags, nor android beam nor payments through the new android pay, stop spreading ignorance already.

    I couldn't stop laughing watching that video. Good stuff brah...
    But really, what is the part of OnePlus 2 doesn't have and it can't be added via back cover you didn't understand?

    There is no NFC Chip in the tear down to connect an NFC Antenna on the back of the cover to.
