I recently got a Sony Vaio Fit. I'm testing to see how to send photos/music etc via NFC. I put my phone near the NFC logo, it vibrates, it says touch to beam and I've tried touching it, tapping, swiping...nothing happens. I tried going to 'throw' on my phone - which i think means using bluetooth ( because my bluetooth switches on at this point) and tried pairing it to my laptop. Laptop wants my WPS Pin ....not sure what that is. Looked for the WPS symbol ( the arrows in a circle) on my phone box...didn't see it. I found the symbol on internet phone settings but i think i managed to re-connect it to my wi-fi.
Not sure where I am going wrong or what to do....help?

when connecting via NFC , once you hear the sound tap the screen to beam image make sure you only hear one sound not two then it should beam.

Same problem here..
2 devices: Sony Xperia ZR & Sony Vaio pro.
I tried to send a picture form my phone to my laptop (and the other way around) but both did not work.
When I try to send a foto from my phone to my laptop I get the screen that says that I have to tap the screen to send. After I did this is said that the receiving device is can not receive "big" transfers.
When I try to do it the other way around my phone makes some kind of sound but after that, nothing happens..
NFC would be a great way to quickly send a picture from one device to another! Can somebody help me out with this problem?

I have the exact same problem. I see no-one responded to your post - did you ever figure out how to connect your phone with your laptop?

What you need to do is this:
Learn from it, and NEVER buy Sony again. I have an Xperia Z2, Vaio laptop and a Bravia TV and the connectivity between the three is absolutely wretched.
