NFC ring

Hi,

I've gotten an NFC ring, mainly to unlock the phone and see what else it can be used for with my S23 Ultra. After spending some time looking for the Smart Lock settings, I finally found out that it had been renamed to "Extend Unlock" :). When I go there, I can set up my Gear S5 watch to unlock it through bluetooth, and it is working fine. I see a list of devices available for unlocking, but all of them are BT.

The "NFC Tools" app is showing me that the ring is working, I can read it and write onto it. Also, this page https://www.verizon.com/support/knowledge-base-304080/ says that, when I enter the Extend Unlock menu on an S23, I am supposed to get a submenu from which I choose between BT or NFC devices, but my phone doesn't show that, even though NFC is enabled. But the support page is from Verizon, not Samsung, so does the S23 Ultra not have the NFC Extend Unlock feature?

When looking at the support note's in the Extend Unlock page it does only neutron Bluetooth @Neofit26 

I haven't seem anything to add anything clearer via a Google Search.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

I am using the same phone as you and was considering an NFC ring to load security access cards, car lock and Samsung wallet.  Do you know if the ring has any of these features?   Ps: I love your reference "This is the way"
