    So I'm trying to test out NFC between my Z10 and my NFC Computer and I have been trying to share a photo from my phone to computer via NFC... for some reason it won't work. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Got it working! Finally! Apparently you can only send web links (tags) to my computer

    I'm glad you got it to work. I use NFC to share photos & stuff with my friends that have android phones. I enjoy showing them something different that they didn't know about.

    Yeah, this NFC technology is very cool. One thing I don't like is the signal strength (maybe it's not signal strength), I have to take my phone out of the case (Otterbox) for devices to detect whatever file I'm sending through NFC.

    Nfc needs the back of your phone to touch the other Nfc device. Having a case on it will hinder it's functionality.

    This is not necessarily true. I have seen NFC work with some cases.

    What cases do you have project_x? Because this Otterbox case for the Z10 is quite reviled here on the forums.

    Actually I think there's more to it. I have the Otter box Defender I had it on when I first sent a YouTube link to a video to my friend who has a Galaxy S3. I think making certain that the receiving phone has the NFC turned on is what worked for us I barely tapped the back of his phone and the NFC picked it up and voil it worked. Of course the phones were fully charged. Battery life could've played a role. Of course I'm not discounting that certain cases maybe detrimental.

    But otterbox is so popular because it is so huge right? It's main purpose is for protection that's why I'm thinking that the case is too thick for NFC to even work.
