I have an S24+ and today I noticed that NFC is not functioning on it. Or rather, according to the diagnostic NFC is functioning but I can't turn it on. A tap of the quick settings icon does nothing. Going into the settings page and trying to toggle on NFC attempts to turn it on and then it immediately goes back to the off position. I've rebooted the phone, cleared app cache, cleared the cache partition, tried booting into safe mode, and all the other troubleshooting steps. Everything worked when I first received the phone (1/26) but I noticed today that NFC stopped working. The only recent change is that I got a 2024 BMW X5 (2/14/2024). Doing a Google search it looks like the iPhone 15 suffered a similar niche issue (NFC services not working after using BMW wireless charging). I believe the s24 series may be suffering from the same issue. Any other bmw owners have this experience?

Dude there's a whole thread at Bimmerpost about the BMW wireless charging bricking NFC. Only resolution is a new phone. If that's happening now to the S24 that's real bad on BMW. I owned a Z4 and my S30i had wireless charging but I was spared disaster on my IPhone 15PM. I feel for you, dude.

I'm not 100% sure it's BMW's fault. Or at least with the iPhones Apple was able to fix the issue with a software update (iOS 17.1.1)

Unfortunately today's update did not fix the issue.

same issue here - brand new S24 Ultra & 2024 BMW i4. I put the phone on the charger during one hour long trip. Since then NFC is totally broken - I cannot turn it on. I did full factory reset - still broken...

Dang. Hopefully it's something they can fix via software update like Apple did. I opened a ticket but haven't heard back yet.

Just stumbled onto this same issue. NFC was working but now I can try to toggle NFC on but it immediately shuts it off again. New 2024 BMW X5 50e. You have to be kidding me....

Ya it sucks. Only workaround I have for now is that NFC works on my galaxy watch.

If you haven't already, please submit an error report in the members app. The more people report and make noise about the issue, the more likelyhood Samsung will take notice and fix it sooner rather than later.
