Default Ugh. So confused.

So I was under the impression that NFC tags could be written and read by all devices. I bought Mini S20 PVC Cards from buynfctags and, if I could post the picture I would show you what my phone reads them as. But it says: "MifareClassic, NfcA, NDEFFormattable is what my phone reads them as. Went to write them on my HTC EVO 4G LTE and I keep getting errors saying it cannot write on the card. Really upsetting. Anyone know what I Can do???

Your phone most likely uses a broadcom NFC chipset that can't access NXP's MiFare Classic tags. Same goes for many newer smartphones like some Samsung models, aswel as Nexus 4,5,7,10.

Look for NTAG 203 or Topaz 512 tags.

Any recommendations on where to get those at? Looking for fairly cheap.
