I’ve recently purchased a No. 1 D7 because it supposedly had NFC support. I’ve sideloaded apps such as NFC Check by Tapkey, Check NFC and NFC enabled. All of these apps report that NFC is “not enabled” or “Unsupported”.
Does NFC need to be turned on? Everything I’ve read indicates that any toggle for NFC would be located under “Wireless and Connections” in Android settings. But, the No. 1 D7 runs FunOS and there is no such setting. The only sections are “Internet Connections” and “Wireless & networks”. There is no NFC toggle under these sections.
I did notice the “Mobile networks” is grayed out under “Wireless & networks” because I currently do not have a SIM inserted. I’m wondering if the NFC toggle may be under that section. Does NFC require a SIM card to be installed?
I’m attempting to use the No. 1 smartwatch to read NFC tags but nothing happens when I hold a written tag up to the watch. Also, nothing happens when I hold another NFC enabled device such as a Samsung S7 next to it.
So, does the No. 1 D7 actually have NFC? Or, is it a non-standard specialty implementation of NFC that’s limited to applications such as certain door locks or the Pure NFC app?
