Here’s a little bit of sad news for T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9900 users. According to a RIM Near Field Communication (NFC) team member, it isn’t looking good for you to be able to use NFC on your 9900. RIM engineers were specifically told to write in an exception for T-Mobile phones based on the Vendor ID.

Therefore, no matter what OS you install, leaked or official, it will not open up the NFC capability on the device. That is, however, unless T-Mobile decides to allow NFC in the future. Any of you 9900 Tmo users upset at this? Or, do you not really care about NFC since it isn’t fully usable yet?
