    I actually like it. Sure, let us automatically change settings with NFC but at least give me the popup please. Perhaps make it an advanced option in Tap + Send that cannot be adjusted by anything.
    I like the extra security of it; but maybe it shouldn't show when reading tags that were created by that same phone.

    If any one worked in Office 2003 and 2007...you will know MS is not new to the annoying 'security warnings'. You could make an Access database, 100% from scratch, you are the only one to ever touch it, and it would STILL give you a warning saying that it could do harm to your computer. It would be like having individually wrapped cigarettes with each one of them needing you to remove two warning labels.

    I know WHY they do it..it was for a reason...but c'mon, allow advanced users to take off the training wheels!

    Good news however...this was removed in Office 2010...now when you open a database, it gives you the warning ONLY THE 1ST TIME. It does it for EVERY database you ever make or open, but ONLY ONCE. That is the best of both worlds. I do not want to give ANY sticker the privilege to turn off my data...but please give us the option to write to a tag that "no warning is needed if using phone IMEI: 19083124879123897412389741238741237980"

    I wish I could use it to do things like turn Bluetooth on in the car and off at other places. Or Wi-fi on at home, things like that. Automatically without my intervention.

    However Microsoft screwed up this part.

    Great question, if this NFC really starts to take off we will see more and more productive uses for it. I have mainly used it to transfer info
    With my new coworkers, aside from that minimally.

    I was hoping to use NFC to share internet at my home, but it seems I can't:
    I have a guest network, with a secret passphrase
    Would be awesome if guests could just swipe the NFC tag in order to gain access to it.
    Is it doable?

    Yeah, except that you can't really "do what you want" thanks to WP8 limitations.
    I have a bunch of NFC stickers with my Lumia 820 and the only things I could do with them is:
    1) open a settings page (like Wifi, bluetooth etc.)
    2) go to a URL
    3) Navigate to an address
    4) open from a given list of apps

    WP8 doesn't support doing the cool things you could do with the GS3 like automatically toggle your ringer or wifi or whatever. I know it's a security thing, but I personally think its too many fences on the WP field.
    Yes I agree no point having a NFC Tag if you still have to touch the phone to allow the thing you are trying to do.

    I have one in the car for the cr200 car mount app ( i dont have the mount but still use the app)
    one beside my bed to turn on night stand clock & one next to my app for opening the music app
    And yes it would be better if you didnt have to cick ok but its still quicker than looking for the app shortcut

    So if I understand this correctly, a tag can only do one thing and that only halfway? So you would touch the phone to the tag and it will for instance bring up the WiFi control panel and first ask for a confirmation?

    Doesn't sound a great deal easier than to have a WiFi tile on the homescreen? Cooler yes, but not easier or faster.
