PLSLOML None of the recent updates deliberately disabled S-Beam or NFC in general. Have you gone into Wireless Settings and looked to see if NFC is enabled on both phones? If they both show enabled yet still don't work, it's possible that something's happened to the chip in the phones. The best solution in that case, would be to visit a service and repair location.
