An iPhone 4 owner who couldn't wait for Apple to add NFC functionality to its handsets has taken matters into her own hands, sticking a contactless bank card inside her phone.
It's still not known whether Apple will add NFC to the upcoming iPhone 5, enabling owners to make payments at the point-of-sale by tapping their handsets against NFC readers.
However, with some Google Android handsets already offering the technology, Unplggd's Vivian Kim couldn't wait any longer, taking the back off her phone and sticking a mini contactless Bank of America card to the iPhone's battery.
With few handsets so far having built in NFC functionality, several firms, including Citi and MasterCard have turned to contactless stickers that can be attached to the back of handsets.
Meanwhile, Visa has partnered vendor DeviceFidelity on a microSD-based iPhone case that turns the handset into a contactless payments device although one bank that has trialled the technology, ANZ, recently ditched it.
