    sm-a515f/ds nfc

    Hello there! first timer here

    Ordered a phone from amazon.ca, occurs to me it came from panama, so the problem is: i cant find NFC in settings at all.
    Currently i reside in Russia, tried rebooting with local simcard, still nothing.
    In Aida64 / System it says something about NFC like com.sec.feature.nfc_authentication, but it may be just common thing for all android phones, i dont know. NFC checker says the phone has no NFC.

    Service provider SW ver.
    SAOMC_SM-A515F_OXM_SER_QQ_0018
    R58N12GQFRY
    SER/SER,SER/TPA

    Does my phone have NFC at all? Or its regionally locked somehow? (samsung pay Russia is installable, but how can i pay if its not detecting nor MST nor NFC).

    Thought u might help a lot of people, cause many people suffer from this problem, at least the ones who ordered it in canada from the same seller.

    it does not have nfc

    but maybe its somehow locked, because it appears to me, that the nfc module may be there, are there any ways to check that?

    You probably can, but don't know how...

    It should be there because it's mentioned in the manual...
