My phone is a Motorola Moto 2g LTE (xt1072). It is really good phone but there is a one problem, it does not have NFC. Is there any solution, to add NFC to the phone which does not have it – and would Android be able to use it then? If yes to both, could you provide some links to such existing "equipment" as proof that it's not only "a nice theory"?

  • NFC SD and SIM Cards seem to be an option, but I don't know much about them – beeshyams Aug 2 '16 at 11:02
  • @beeshyams I searched through the net but I did not find any market in which the NFC SD card is sell. Could you provide me with a link? – FieryCod Aug 2 '16 at 11:07
  • Checking the link @beeshyams gave, that text exists at least since 6/2012 – yet I couldn't find any such SD or SIM card up to today (ie. more than 4 years later). Looks like there were some start-up productions back in 2010/11, though – well, they've produced microSDs with NFC. But the article doesn't state if and where those were/are sold. At least Amazon doesn't have any. – Izzy Aug 2 '16 at 12:33

Sorry to say this, but it seems to be a long way off before truly turning a NON NFC into NFC phone (as pointed out by Izzy in comments, there have been some efforts but no progress)

  • NFC SD and SIM Cards claims that Both SIM and SD cards can be equipped with NFC chips can be used to enable.

  • Toshiba has come up with NFC SD card last year, but the catch is that it requires NFC enabled device to work with. All it does , is enabling seeing the contents of SD card without physical connection

  • NFC-enabled SIM cards launched a couple of months back in Singapore for paying for rail travel- but they work only with NFC enabled phones

  • Could you provide me with a link to such a NFC SD card? – FieryCod Aug 2 '16 at 13:50
  • click on the link above ! it shows Amazon prices too – beeshyams Aug 2 '16 at 13:52
  • I want to enable NFC with SD card. Not to have SD card which I can enable with NFC – FieryCod Aug 2 '16 at 14:03
  • that is not possible as I said in the first line of the answer – beeshyams Aug 2 '16 at 14:06

    Turning Non NFC phones into NFC by using SD cards/ SIM is not a reality- so there os no way you can turn your device into NFC – beeshyams Aug 2 '16 at 14:09
