1. While viewing the content that you want to share, hold HTC One and the other
device back to back. When the devices connect, you'll hear a sound and both
devices will vibrate slightly.
2. Tap the screen.
The shared content appears on the other screen. For some items that you've shared
(such as contact information), additional instructions on how to save the item will
appear on the receiving device.

Any problems I have had with Beaming content with my Evo 4g LTE have been user error on the receiving party's side (i.e. them not tapping to accept the info) or pulling the phone away to quickly.
Yeah, same as

The problem I had was that there was no sound/vibration or any other sign that they had connected. Tapping content to share did nothing... I have followed the above instructions correctly (I am a tech geek so I'd like to think I know what I am doing...?! I played around with both phones for about 5 minutes) but it didn't work, am therefore wondering if there is a problem with my phone/HTC One in general/Android version or HTC vs other makes...
