    Seem to have issues when trying to beam files via NFC to other NFC phones such as the DROID RAZR HD, been trying to transfer files like pictures but it doesn't work. I have tried turning off S-Beam and only leaving android beam on. What it does is sends me to the play store when someone tries to send a pic via the Galaxy S3. Also keeps saying the file is too big which is odd being its under 1 MB

    S-Beam is for Samsung to Samsung only.

    Likewise, I could not send a picture file from my S3 to a DROID RAZR HD, however the DROID RAZR HD was successful in sending a picture file to my S3 using NFC.
