Jolla has said that NFC functionality is only for communication between the Jolla phone and The Other Half. Try Bluetooth?

Bluetooth works fine.....it was just to try....

I have a hard time understanding why is nfc blocked for this exclusive purpose, it seems to me to be very limiting without any real backing reason, or is there one?

I'm sure the chip can do both things!

Should we just let the nfc chip go to waste? what about the nfc usage for payments, authentication, etc. ?

Are we suppose to make a special TOH with another nfc chip just to use these usefull features, we should already have??

I agree with dsilveira, sacrificing NFC for an ambience exclusive use does not make much sense. I would rather choose to have the NFC functionality, with a plain cover.
