AT&T Disabling the Bold 9900’s NFC feature
AT&T is allegedly planning to block the Bold 9900's NFC capabilities.
AT&T reportedly has no plans to get the BlackBerry Bold 9900’s near-field communications (NFC) capabilities at launch. However, an unnamed source said that the hardware seems to be capable of NFC features when it arrives in the hands of AT&T’s customers. The said carrier will implement a software block to prevent users to take advantage of the technology.
If the report mentioned above is accurate, AT&T would not be the only carrier to block the new BlackBerry’s NFC feature. The first Bold 9900 buyers in the UK have been dealt a similar fate as Vodafone is not yet ready to enable the said capability.
AT&T didn’t give any statements regarding the matter. It is still unclear if the carriers currently dodging NFC have plans to enable the feature in the near future.View Article Source »
