I don't know if i could take the phone to another carrier, but i wouldn't do that because it would be the same phone - lacking certain features - but on a more expensive carrier.
I'm just going to suck it up.
As far as some GSIIs not having an NFC chip, my phone has an app called "NFC Service," so i assume the chip is in the phone. Further, it seems unlikely TracFone orders enough of these phones that Samsung would modify its assembly line to remove a few NFC chips. Disabling the software seems more likely.
