    So I have my new Smart and am playing around with the NFC and my wife's Galaxy S3... And when they touch i get the little "Touch to send message on her phone, and the tablet makes a fancy sound, and then the phone says to pull away and it then "Prepares" to send the file. Nothing comes up on the tablet and eventually the phone says "Failed to send" Whats up? Seems like the NFC is useless.

    Sending via NFC works with my Vivo Tab and Lumia 920. Make sure BT is turned on for both devices, WP will prompt you to do so when sending a file, not sure in andy device do the same.

    Does the tablet have Bluetooth enabled? Are the both hooked up to WiFi? NFC just automates the connection of other protocols and doesn't send the file itself.

    Yes I had both Bluetooth and Wifi on for both devices. The S3 would say prepping file but then nothing shows up on the tablet. I assume I would need to do something on the tablet correct?

    And don't expect the process to look like it does on that Samsung Galaxy commercial. There will be no instant transmission of pics and video lol.

    As long as BT and NFC are enabled on the tablet you shouldnt have to do anything else. There was an article on umpcportal that mentioned the same issue with a Samsung Ativ and an s3 so my take is this wont work with this device.

    Should be a Tap and Send folder under downloads, I think. Check this video for the NFC info, didn't see this on the site review but I think he mentions it. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=ABnNBaWUIcc

    Maybe it works because of the similar kernels in WP and W8. I guess the only way to check where the problem is is to test with another device. Maybe a Symbian Nokia or other android device with NFC in case Samsung added some proprietary stuff for their devices.
