Dev Alpha C NFC - Does it work?

Did anyone able to use the NFC on Dev Alpha C?


I'm now using OS10.1.0.809 and after I enabled NFC + Bluetooth in Setting, when I tried to share contact / picture with another NFC phone, it doesn't respond.


Anyone having the same issue on their Alpha C ?

Re: Dev Alpha C NFC - Does it work?

Tested it between my Z10 LE and Dev Alpha C. It worked in both directions to send a picture.

Maybe you can try to update the Dev Alpha C according to following post (this will also enable Twitter, Facebook, Hub etcetera; if this wasn't available on your DAC yet): http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-10-dev-devices-f270/upgrade-developers-1485-os-devc-stl100-2...

A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Re: Dev Alpha C NFC - Does it work?

 On my colleague Dev C NFC is not working because NFC antenna is glued little of proper location. Can you try to take someone else back cover, and try it? With my back cover on colleague Dev C it works. If that is the case, solution is to peel of NFC antenna and stick it back on proper location (it can be done).
