Use of the NFC Function
On iPhones (8 or newer) NFC function is always ON.
On newer Android NFC function is usually OFF and need to be activated in the control area by pulling down the start screen.
The best way to read the NFC chip is to "wake up" the smartphone from idle mode by touching the screen one.
Unlike classic plastic bank cards, the NFC chip on the ContactMeCard made of stainless steel is somewhat shielded by the material. Accordingly, we ask that you hold the card up to the smartphone of the person you are talking to as shown below.
iPhone: The card must be held directly against the iPhone as shown above on the upper edge of the phone. This is where the NFC reader is build in. The NFC chip sits under the QR code. The card may need to be moved back and forth a bit.
Android: On Android phones, the NFC reader is located slightly above the center on the back of the device. The NFC chip must be stopped there.
