Besides using GTM to check the readiness of our iPhone and Apple Watch, any other methods?

I just went BV yesterday to register both my devices. I suppose meanwhile till 7 working days later, I canít tell if my devices are registered successfully into their system?
you need at least 2-3 days for them to update their backend systems. when i registered @ city hall their laptop wasn't connected to the network so it could be that they sync in all details come end of day.

yesterday evening had to scan 2 times before gates open. first tap phone registered the entry but gate screen flash red. 2nd tap is almost instantaneous.

Was looking forward to using that Samsung Pay transport card function.

Let's wait and see how they reply on this.
Nope not able to. Have brought this up directly to Samsung for advice. Still waiting for the team to get back to me..

Otherwise, manual activation of Samsung pay works well for me. Seldom get error already using phone, using watch will still get error sometimes..

Registered at city hall this afternoon 4pm (met a couple bros there)

Worked when I tap in mrt at 6pm. My station has the "newer" gantry so I thought why not try.
Tap out boon Keng no issues.
Went dhoby for dinner also no issues.

COME BACK tap out mrt no problem.
Transfer to bus GG gone case.

So if your trips are purely mrt, go ahead and try. But I wasted money today playing around because I boarded the bus with my Ez link card.

Went down to register at Buona Vista.
The staff there couldn’t register me as they were having problems getting the NFC.
Then I remember a bro here who said that NFC is located at the TOP portion of the phone. Scan it at 45 degree pointing towards the NFC reader and it works

Facing very consistent failure from readers on buses (be it the unit near the driverís console/away). Also experiencing significant lag when tapping at MRT gantries. So am probably gonna switch back to physical card.

The strange thing is that it was working reliably for me at the same bus services & train lines for a good few days. Itís like the readers collectively receive new firmware/bulk data to validate my card & hence failing...

your consistent failure is watch or phone

same happen to me...it was working quite smooth for few days then havoc thereafter....no matter what kind of position i change, lag or multiple tap to succeed.

Do I have to activate my card at the GTM first before I register my Apple device at Transitlink Office?

Don't know about iPhone, but I have been using s9+ on transit nowadays and all work just fine. Maybe my s9+ has a larger nfc surface area than iPhone and thus able to be compatible with the current readers.

I honestly think the current readers are not optimised for watches and iPhone cos both have similar surface area of nfc field. Hopefully can overcome by firmware limitation.

But if the failure is due to user problem, then firmware cannot help le..

Phone. I don’t have an Apple Watch.

NFC is one chip size no? Correct me if I am wrong
