Please, someone, explain this to me. First or all, why does Bluetooth have to be enabled for tap+send?
And whenever I tap my phone to a Nexus 7 to share a picture, it makes the noise, and then on the Nexus 7 it says new tags collected and "windows.com/sd"
Why can't I send my image? My nexus 7 is the only nfc device I have besides my 920.

My theory on the bluetooth needing to be on is that when you doing an NFC from one windows phone to the other it initiates the connection with NFC then transfers it via bluetooth. As far as transfer between WP and Android its not gonna work for photos either way. The only transfers ive gotten to work between my Nexus 7 and Lumia 822 are contacts and links

listen to me I know...Bluetooth has to be on because that's how the file is actually sent....tap+send and nfc.....NFC is used just to make the connection with another phone...Bluetooth always will be how the file is sent. Make sure on your Nexus that wifi-direct, nfc and any other setting that needs to be on....my 8x sends music, pictures, websites, videos just fine to my s3, trust me if your settings are correctly on your wp8 Bluetooth & tap to send....then its the android device

Last time I tried that, it asked me to pair with android device when wanted to trade info with +1 to hassle again!
Also both bluetooth and nfc drain a bit of power from the battery so i dont really fancy keeping them running all the time.

I'm having the same issue. Android device says "new tag collected" "windows.com/SD". Works fine with two 920s but not with nexus 4. It seems like the nexus 4 is the issue as whats on the screen makes zero sense. But I wonder which device is causing the issue or both? I also noticed that the nexus 4 doesn't have the option to share a photo via NFC when you click the sharing icon so maybe nexus 4 doesn't support it.

NFC does not transfer the data, it instruct Bluetooth how to send the information. You can accomplish the file transfer without using NFC by simply pairing your Nexus 7 and Windows Phone together using Bluetooth. Then go to the picture on your Windows Phone, click "..." then click Share, then click bluetooth. Accept the photo on your Nexus 7 and Whalla! Your picture is transferred to the Nexus 7 via bluetooth (which is what NFC would have done in the first place). I know its a bit more cumbersome to do it this way, but at least it works. For future photos, simply go to Setting - Bluetooth on your phone and tap your Nexus 7. This will pair your Nexus 7 and Windows Phone. Then repeat steps above to send the picture.
