Update issues and NFC


I have a new fairphone 4, which has NFC and I tried to set up either Google pay or PayPal for contactless payments and it won’t recognise either.
Then I tried to do the latest Feb update and it won’t get past 81%. Now installer keeps crashing.
I know I need to return it by 14 days, so unless there’s a quick fix for these issues, how do I go about returning the phone?

Great thanks, will try that. Will it fix the issue with contactless payments too?

I don’t know, and have no direct experience, but best to test on latest update.

I see this thread Google Play API Integrity Check failed due to Integrity CANNOT_BIND_TO_SERVICE error (attempting to run Google Pay)

… from this Search – paypal + nfc.

Hi based in the UK the only real contactless payments option is Apple pay or Google wallet. Potentially PayPal but it’s not reliable enough. Latest update has the same issue. If e/os doesn’t support this I don’t see how they are going to get NFC working for payments. Which unfortunately is a deal breaker for me.
