    Default Mifare Classic NFC Tags Incompatible with Nexus 4

    Nexus 4 and 10 Incompatible With Mifare Classic NFC Tags | NFC Brief

    I have some Mifare Classic NFC tags so I can test this when my Nexus 4 arrives but if anyone can verify this I would appreciate it.

    according to xda developers mifare 1k classics won't work. Apparently they are not compliant with NFC standards. Too bad as I have 10 tags that i bought before and used with my Nexus s 4G

    I emailed them and the 1k versions do not work. The NTAG203 tags will work though. They are out of stock right and won't have anymore for 4 weeks.

    You can, use any of the standard tag types from the NFC forum. Types 1-4 should work, as they are not proprietary. Identive has some you can buy here.

    NFC Tags from IdentiveNFC.com

    Be careful with type 2, sometimes those are confused with "mifare" tags which are proprietary.

    I must be slow, but i just discovered these. Been rocking an old phone without NFC. When I am older i might get these as business cards. *scan for contact details in phone*

    The Mifare Classic 1K chip is not one of the four standard NFC chip types and will not work with Blackberry, Windows, and some newer Android devices (such as the Nexus 4).

    buynfctags.com has the Type 1, 2, and 4 tags that will work with the Nexus 4. Here is a link to their NTAG stickers: NFC Sticker - NTAG203 | Stickers | Tags | BUYNFCTAGS.COM.

    Type 1- Topaz
    Type 2- NTAG, UL, ULC
    Type 4- DesFire

    Fixed in 4.2.1. All my 1k tags are fine now.

    I bought these:

    Amazon.com: 10 NFC Tag Bundle w/ NFC keychain + Stickers: Electronics

    I'm hearing mixed things..... will these work for the Nexus 4 or should I order different tags?

    I bought these tags (a couple months ago prior to the N4 announcement) and they work on my Nexus 7, but not on my Nexus 4 (both running 4.2.1).

    Those tags won't work on your Nexus 4. They are MIFARE Classic tags, which is the same type of tags featured in the Amazon link.

    My Samsung tech tiles work fine with my nexus 4. Just needed to use NFC reader instead of the Samsung app.
