OK so I've seen a few threads about NFC so thought it might be an idea to correlate all the info into one thread. Lets make this a thread for questions about using NFC or buying tags etc. as well as giving tips we've found or how we've overcome problems. Then I can update this op with the tips or deals we've found!! :)

Me and my friend use Android beam all the time so it def works, make sure it's enable in settings, pretty obvious but by default mine was disabled

I know some tags will work with symbian but not with android. So there might be a compatibility issue as well. Something to do with the hardware maybe?

Using the Sony Xperia Smart Tags and app from the Play Store. Works fine for me. Only thing I could do with is GPS on/off in the options. Going to have a play with it and Tasker to see how they can combine.

To get GPS toggle working you need Tasker AND secure settings. Once you have installed secure settings go to system settings, security and enable it as a device administrator. Then open the app and go to the helper tab and install the helper. Now go into tasker and go to settings, misc tab and tick allow external access. Create a new task (i called mine GPS Toggle) click the plus to add a new task and click on plug ins. Select secure settings then hit configure. In the drop down list you will see gps. choose on, off or toggle and hit the little disc icon in the corner to save. Now you can select this task from nfc task launcher to program gps state to tags!

This thread seems to explain it pretty well: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1365360

dont have a clue which uk retailers accept it though, anyone know?

P.S. A fellow Bristolian!!!

EDIT: Ive just tried following the instructions but get the error message. Having done some more research i think google have fixed this workaround so it doesnt work. Looks like we might have to wait for an official google release before we get to play with wallet
