    What am I doing wrong? I put the two phones up and sometimes get the noise but rarely does the screen change to allow me to tap it to confirm the transfer.

    Maybe a case or a thick case is preventing it from picking up the NFC signal?

    It took a few tries for me and a friend to get it to work on launch day, but it eventually did. Sort of gimmicky though, haven't used it since.

    I've tried mine three times..No issues, even with TPU cases on both units.

    Works just fine. IIRC it just transfers meta type data like url's, or deep links to the direct youtube video.

    If you are trying to transfer a lasagna, it's not going to work.

    You can laugh all you want, I'm sure that someone has tried to transfer a lasagna already.

    For those that need more info on this feature:

    Again, don't try to transfer a lasagna, it's not mentioned as a feature, and could do serious harm to yourself and your SGN! :D:D
