    Has anyone that has already gotten the 920, tried using the phone with NFC Tags? I don't know if software comes with it or if you need to download some. Maybe no software is available yet.

    Here is a link that has a video that explains what I am talking about. My understanding was that we would be able to do this with our phone.

    You can download the app here:
    NfcInteractor.com | NFC tag reader / writer app

    I think you have to buy stickers or tags, but I'm not exactly sure if you can just buy any tags. I dont know how universal the hardware is.

    I've tried it, it works. I have a plastic credit-card looking thing that has an NFC chip in it. I got it from a Nokia rep. The phone recognizes it and takes you to their website.

    With that NfcInteractor app, you can read/write to the nfcchip, although I haven't tried writing to it yet.

    Samsung is selling packets of tags but I can't tell if it allows universal write capabilities or if you need the Samsung app they mention to write them.

    The Samsung Tectiles tags are made with the Classic 1K chips with 752 bytes of memory. These tags can be used with any App and any NFC phone except Blackberrys and Windows Phones. (Blackberrys and Windows Phones cannot read Classic 1K chips).

    You can buy plain NFC tags for the Windows phone here: NFC Tags, Readers and Software | BUYNFCTAGS.COM. Just don't get the Mifare Classic 1K tags, the NTAGs and Topaz tags are fine though.

    You can get tags on buynfctags.com . They cost about a dollar each. There's a long list of other places to buy tags here: NFC Tags - XDA-Developers.

    Make sure you either get the NTAGs or get them NDEF formatted. More info here : NFC Phones and NFC Tablets - NFC - GoToTags NFC Software Documentation.
