Working with handset partner Nokia and wireless operator Maybank and Maxis. Subscribers may tether their Nokia 6212 phones, which have NFC chips embedded, to a credit card account and then swipe their phones to make purchases at some 1,800 participating retailers. Some of the places accepting the NFC payments include public transport, toll roads and parking lots.

Swipe your phone!?

"I'm sorry Sir, your phone has been declined. We will need to hold onto it" 😳
I don't know of anyone now that keeps your credit card now if it gets declined.
How would you cut a cell phone in half?

"Sir, hold on just one moment while I go grab the chainsaw. I'll be right back"
