My newly purchased A12 will not allow contactless use, my old A12 does.

it doesn’t have NFC

Hi @Members_ZkqSUqt NFC is region dependent on the A12, should definitely be on the UK version.   Where did you purchase the device?

Some information on the A12 here https://www.notebookcheck.net/Samsung-Galaxy-A12-review-Budget-Samsung-smartphone-with-NFC-and-huge-...

Hi James,

it was bought on eBay in the UK.

My old A12, which I dropped, aloud me to use Google wallet, this one doesn’t.

I’ve contacted the seller and I am awaiting a reply.

my older phone was bought 14 months ago and I definitely didn’t expect a new one to have less functions .

my guess is that the latest phone is in fact an older model.

If that is the case I’ll be asking for my money back or a suitable replacement.

thanks for your help

Tony

You'll probably find it's a phone that was not meant to be used in the UK which is why Google pay doesn't work and you'll probably find samsung pay also doesn't work.

I wouldn't bother messaging the seller just open a case against them through ebay and get a refund.

@Members_ZkqSUqt yes, Member may have contacted seller but not likely to get satisfactory response,if the case ,best to open case via eBay directly. Think it is a non_UK model. Personally would not purchase mobiles via ebay but up to each consumer to decide on best course of action.
