Can phones without built-in NFC interact with each other through NFC stickers?

How can two phones interact with each other through NFC if one of the two is not NFC-enabled?
If neither of the two is NFC enabled even then can NFC be materialised using NFC stickers or cards? Please elaborate

    Think about your question! Its like asking "Can I ride my bike if it has no wheels".

    NFC stickers are designed to be detected through NFC devices only. so without an NFC device the stickers would be useless and the phone without NFC will not be able to detect the stickers either.

    Phones without NFC cannot interface over NFC.

    An NFC sticker is a one way communication, so no, they cannot be used to interface phones that don't have NFC. You could conceivably stick one of the back of your phone pre-programmed with your phone number to give contact details to phones with NFC, but your phone has nothing to do with that, you may as well just be carrying out the sticker.

    If you have a look at Sony Xperia Sola,then it comes up with two NFC tags.One for the phone and other for the device you want to connect with NFC.Basically,a NFC phone uses a NFC tag which is usually placed in battery or battery cover.
