I have bought a new Samsung Galaxy A12 specifically for NFC function

Two apps have told me there is no NFC function available, I also cannot find any NFC settings in Settings>Connections. Software says its up to date.


Model nr: SM-A127F/DS

What's going on here? Can I get NFC functionality working>

Hi
Try below

Turn NFC on your Samsung Galaxy A12 on or off

Slide two fingers downwards starting from the top of the screen. Press the NFC icon to turn the function on or off. Press the Home key to return to the home screen.

I have the same issue as HVeerbeek. I've been searching around the internet for an answer and haven't found one.
I bought two of these phones (SM-A127F/DS) for my kids because the NFC would allow them to top up their bus fare cards from my credit card anywhere at anytime. But there is no NFC settings, there's no icon in the pull down "draw".
These particular phones supposedly ship with NFC, but I can't access or use that advertised feature. Is there something wrong with the current firmware version for these devices?

I looked into this and actually phoned samsung UK. They stated on this model phone there is no NFC as it is a EU phone which is outside of UK. Any phone that is within UK will have NFC on it.

I have same model phone. If you look up gsm arena you will see the difference in model numbers. In UK models the model no. is SM-A125F/DS compared to SM-A127F/DS

Mine is a 'SM-A125F/DS' but has no NFC 😞
I think maybe the 'N' at the end of the model name might stand for NFC? Either way I'm pretty upset to find I don't have this feature. Overall I'm not impressed by this phone.
