NFC file transfers (android beam)
I got an S2 T989 for my gf on ebay (unlocked). I have a Nexus 4 and I was excited to transfer files with her phone via NFC as I do with a friend's Xperia. But I haven't been able to do it. When trying to transfer a picture, I place both phones close, I hear the sound that let's me know there's an NFC connection, but when I try to transfer from my N4 it says that the other device doesn't support that kind of files.
I made a little research to find out that S-beam is just for Samsung devices, so I turned off the S-beam option on the S2, just leaving the Android Beam. But still no success. Is it possible to transfer a picture through NFC from a Samsung to a non-Samsung?
The S2 is running 4.0.3 stock, not rooted. I'm sure that rooting and flashing a vanilla rom might solve this, but I don't want to mess her phone to roms because she is sort of a newby in smartphones.
