I got a startle the other day from my Galaxy Nexus phone. I had taken my wallet out of my pocket and placed my phone on top of it. My phone made a noise I didn't recognize with no indication that anything was really happening. A few moments later, the phone started making the sound non-stop.

Turns out that (when the screen is on) the Galaxy Nexus is always smelling for NFC things. When I placed my phone on my wallet, it started reading my credit card. Makes me worry that credit cards can be read (and stolen) with NFC in phones.

Anyways, this seems like strange behaviour to me. The phone should at least tell me why it's freaking out when it's close to my credit card.
