    Where did you get the tags that work with our phones? I am curious to get some and try them out.

    You can get them through the NFC Task Launcher app, they will send you two free tags to get you started.

    In addition to the 2 free they have a great developers package for 20 dollars. Or you can just go on amazon and search nfc tags. So far, through the mentioned app is the best package for the money that I have found.

    After reading this topic I went and ordered some on Amazon. Was pretty disappointed that while Samsung sells them on the US website, they don't offer them at any Canadian reseller. I even went on live chat to ask where to purchase and all the guy would tell me was that accessories are sold at some third party site and he has no information on whether they sell the tiles or where to buy them.

    Thankfully Amazon has a seller on their. Little expensive at 5 for $15, but not too bad. I ordered 2 packs for 10 in total.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to love these things.

    I honestly can't believe I never heard of them until now. I seen the NFC toggle in the notification panel, but didn't think it was anything useful. Boy how I was wrong. I already have quite a few planned out for what to do with them.

    I've had my Note 2 for two months now. I sure am on top of things. :P

    I'm not sure that a lot of people know what all NFC does, your definitely not alone. I didn't know just how capable NFC was until I Googled NFC uses. I also wanted to once again mention the NFC Task Manager app, I've tried just about every NFC app out there and this app seems to do the most. Have a blast with the tags, I know my wife loves to get the I love you text every time I run an errand.

    Yes thanks. People were telling a guy about it in another thread that wanted his phone to do something related to voice dialing - oh, not go to sleep so it wouldn't lock, and they all said get one of these tags. I'd never heard of them before and couldn't figure out what use they would possibly be. I'm tempted to get one now simply to turn my screen brightness up when I leave the house and wifi off. Then reverse it when I get home. That's the only thing I really need automated since I don't use the phone to play music or navigate or use a Bluetooth headset which seem to be the big uses. And since I have Sprint, I don't have to worry about setting my phone on silent when I get a anywhere cause there's no signal inside buildings.

    However, what do the non - key chain tags look like? Do you stick them on to things? I'd be tempted to stick one somewhere at church so I don't get notifications and alarm sounds and people don't think I am using my phone when I am just trying to silence it.

    This was a great idea for a thread zmann, if more people knew that NFC was more than a quick way to pay for things, I'm sure a lot more people would be using it.

    And to think, I was enjoying using nfc only with Google wallet and paying at any store that accepted it. Can't wait for more nfc stuff to pop up.

    I sent a PM to one of the moderators that I have recently chatted with, to see if AC could start an NFC section.

    It only took 2 weeks, but I finally got my NFC tags in. I love these things. They can do so much and make things so much easier.

    I think my only gripe is that they can't be used while the phone is locked. Saying that, I understand why they don't do this. People would be raging if their phone could be made to do things with people just walking by. With pickpocketing being an art, I imagine NFC attacks would be next. Still, would be much more convenient if it worked like this, but they still are pretty convenient. :P

    I can't find a setting to do this, so I don't think I can, but figured I'd ask and make sure in case someone has a better eye than me.

    Is there a way to turn off mobile network types? I know in NFC Task Launcher, not the Samsung app, we can turn off mobile data, but I can't find anything that lets you choose network types. i.e. when I'm home I can turn off LTE and when I leave I can turn on LTE. I can do this via the settings, but having this automated via NFC would save a lot of time.

    If you mean toggling mobile data (LTE) on and off, yes I have mine set up that way. I toggle mobile DATA (LTE) to on and toggle my wifi to off. I hope this helps.

    Sorry, I meant LTE only. The mobile data toggle will turn off data completely for LTE, 3G and E. I can turn off LTE only in the settings while still keeping a connection open to 3G. I'm looking for a way to do that with NFC tags. I thought mobile data would do it, but it only has an on off toggle. I was hoping it would have more options such as all on, all off, lte on, lte off, 3g on, 3g off, etc.

    You can email the guy that created the app, if he tells you that the app currently doesn't support that, perhaps he'll add it, especially considering the popularity of Samsung phones. He's easy to chat with and his email is in the app.
