    So since rooting the Nfc icon in the top bar has vanished. Do we know that it is still active without this? It says its on in settings but like I said , without a notofication icon up top.

    I never realised there was one in the first place, maybe it's a firmware thing?

    Maybe have something to do with the Samsung TAG app that was preinstalled when I got the phone.

    Sounds like that might have been the cause,I useNfc task launcher with mine and when it reads a tag it gives a notification, but that's it :)

    ROFL "debit card to phone, come in phone." That sounds like an annoying if harmless bug.
