It's not going to cost you anything to find out one way or another anyway. Go for it.

That is a good point; for some reason I did not think of that! :wacko:
However I would expect there must be some kind of extra battery use if it is constantly checking for nearby tags.
I have turned it on and will monitor battery stats over the next few days.....

Get the Sony xperia ones, they have lots of memory and they're cheap. I got 6nfc official ones for £4.50. It is easy to setup too there is an official app

Found these ones on ebay
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2320dbe01b

Are these the ones you bought? It says "suitable for Xperia S, Xperia P, Xperia Sol" in the description, but I guess that they should work on the OSD too?

As far as I'm aware ALL NFC tags should work with any smartphone, you just need a suitable app to program them. The only thing you need to check is the actual memory size of the tags since some can only store a very limited number of actions.

Never really understood NFC, am I missing out, why I should turn it on and use it? What do people use it for mostly, transferring files?
