The BlackBerry Bold 9930 sold by Verizon Wireless does not have NFC capabilities. It appears that although the BlackBerry Bold 9930 CDMA version has the NFC chip inside, some carriers have disabled the function. We do know that the GSM, BlackBerry Bold 9900 will have NFC.
BlackBerry representatives issued a statement "RIM believes that NFC is an exciting technology that will enable many
new capabilities, and we are aligning with our partners in supporting
the overall NFC ecosystem by investing in NFC in our products. The
BlackBerry Bold 9900 series are the first to be NFC ready, and we are
working closely with carrier partners on their roll out plans for NFC."
Some believe NFC.may be enabled via a software update at a later date.
