NFC stands for Near Field Communication. It can be used by two compatible devices to communicate with each other when you bring them close together; usually a distance of about 4 cm or less.

  • NFC is how contactless payment works when you tap your card or hold your phone next to an eftpos machine.
  • You can also use Near Field Communication on your mobile to transfer data, connect devices and open webpages to other compatible devices.

Why is my phone beeping?

  • You may have left NFC on. Your phone may beep when it detects another NFC signal.
  • This could be from bank cards, other smart phones, or other NFC enabled devices.

How do I turn NFC on/off?

  1. Search for your mobile on Mobile Support;
  2. Select ‘Data and Wireless’
  3. Follow the steps to turn on/off NFC.
