    I've been trying to get my demo phones at work to demonstrate S-beam. I have it enabled along with NFC, but it doesn't want to transfer a picture. I guess my question is, how do you get it to work?

    It should just be a matter of having both S-Beam and NFC turned on and then tapping the phones together. After I get back from outpatient surgery tomorrow I will go by the local Corporate store and check.

    TAPPED in on my locked bootloader Verizon S3

    S beam on. I think I tapped Nfc to authenticate. Goto pic in gallery. Share with s beam. My phone then has a box to click that is my wife's phone. S beam has its own indicator that is similar to WiFi.

    Assuming everything (meaning S-Beam) is turned on, we do this:

    Open gallery
    Select picture
    Put phone back to back with another S3
    There will be a *beep* and the phone will instruct you to touch to Beam
    Touch and hold photo. Then phone will tell you to separate devices
    Profit!

    I figured it out, the phones were placed on the display pucks to where the NFC area was covered. Everything looks to be working how it should :)
