What is NFC?

Can anyone tell me what NFC (Near Field Communication) is actually for and whether I need it switched on or not on my Z10??

Re: What is NFC?

If you're not using it, leave it switched off.

In short, on your BlackBerry, with NFC enabled and when with another NFC device, you can quickly tap and exchance pictures, files, contacts, etc., and payment in some establishments where in use.
