NFC not working on Z3

Well, basically I'm able to activate my NFC, everything works fine, but I can't pair it with any other NFC device, including my style cover SCR24. Any ideas?

Nope. Don't have stamina mode on neither I have any of those apps. I've just done a clean install of the android system like for the 3rd time and it keeps not working.

Nope. Already tried that as well and still got no response :/. The weird part is that I can enable it and I did the NFC Diag test and the result was ok

This is what I would do 

 

repair the phone yet again with PCC 

 

on the initial set up > do NOT add your Gmail account, to avoid auto downloading an app and/or update that could be causing this > after you skip the set up process > restart the phone > test it again

I could do that but I've done it like several times already. I'm gonna try it anyways. But still, do you have any other idea of what could be the problem? If it was an hardware problem would the nfc still turn on?

Nope. Still doesn't work. This makes me get so mad... I got the phone and 1 week later i had to send it to repair because the screen started to fail in relation to touch responsivness. Now the NFC doesn't work.. jesus.

I'm sorry to hear that but perhaps its related to the screen issue, maybe they didn't checked that issue.
