Hi,
I was Wondering if there is any way I can get NFC on my Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815), as Have Searched for it, but lots of people are contradicting themselves by saying that you can and you cant, I do know it has the capability as Huawei use the same ROM for the U8815 and the U8818, but is there any way that I can get it through buying a different battery or as Davidoff59 has pointed out it can with a case or a sleeve

Fully Integrated into the handset: NFC,
especially in newer devices, can be fully
integrated into the handset. That means that
the NFC controller ( the piece that does the
actual communication) and the secure
element ( the secure storage area connected
to the NFC controller) are both integrated
into the handset itself. One example of a
fully integrated NFC handset is the Google
Nexus S, Google's latest flagship phone built
in partnership with Samsung.
On a SIM card: Alternately, NFC can be
integrated into a SIM card - the card that
identifies a mobile subscriber on an
operator's cellular network.
On a microSD card: NFC technology can
also be integrated on a microSD card, which
is a removable storage card that uses flash
memory. Many mobile phone owners use
microSD cards to store photos, videos, apps
and other files in order to save storage space
on the phone itself. For phones that don't
have a microSD card slot, accessories like
cases or "sleeves" can be used instead. For
example,

Can anybody clear this up for me, and please don't tell me to search the forums for it, as I have done! (sorry to sound rude, but I do always try to find an answer by myself before I ask about it)

Thanks
George

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

There are two versions of G300s. The first one, U8815, has two holes under battery cover. It means that there are no pins for NFC antenna. The second one, U8815N, has two pins instead of two holes. This version is NFC enabled by default.

So - no pins, no NFC.

It seems the black G300s have NFC, that's why they were never available in the UK :(

Ok, Is there any way of getting it, as Davidoff59 said that you can use a special case or buying a different battery or even an SD card, Is this true?

NEAR FIELD COMMANDS. Basically a way to share small files or pay for things by moving you're phone near a nfc capable device.
You see it in adverts for the galaxy s3 when they share a photo by touching phones.

Hey,

there are only two solutions, how to get NFC into your device. The first solution is to use NFC Micro SD card and the second one is NFC enabled SIM card. The solution with battery is not applicable to G300.

I can't wait to be able to get one of these! (Quoted from http://www.rfid-blog.com/?p=649 )

How to turn your non-NFC phone into an NFC-enabled phone with NFC stickers
Since Osama Bedier, VP of Payments for Google, let slip that NFC stickers could theoretically work in allowing you to turn your non-NFC phone into an NFC-enabled phone, the rumor has been a buzz. Google has planned to release a special sticker that will allow phones without built-in NFC capabilities to access the Google Wallet app. The Google Wallet special sticker can be attached to the back of the phone and works like a single-purpose NFC chip. It will only work for the app and it can only be set to accommodate a single credit card. Yet no actual product is available for the time being.

It is for sure that there will be other options coming to market allowing you to turn your non-NFC phone into an NFC-enabled phone. So let’s just wait to see it.
