Even if the software and hardware are there, the have disabled it at a network level.
But I have GSM unlocked the phone, and I am using a German Vodafone SIM card, that is roaming in the USA over AT&T, and I can send+receive calls with it. Plus I have also upgraded to this newest OS.
How does T-Mobile enter into the equation at this stage? Other than the T-Mobile splash logo when I power-up the phone, I do not see any other trace of that carrier on my device.
If other carriers have NFC enable on this specific phone, they must be a way to enable it with T-Mobile. If hacking tools exist to replace the splash logo, that indicates that there are parts of firmware not touched by the OS change, which can be modified by other means. Perhaps another tool can enable NFC, other than the OS change.
