    Hi,

    I bought some NFC Tags, but I have a few problems with them. I would like to use them as toggles (WiFi etc.).
    1. They only work when my phone is unlocked (even though I checked the respective options in the NFC menu)
    2. I can't get an NFC Tag to switch between network modes (2G, 2G/3G etc.)
    3. I can't get an NFC Tag to toggle bedside mode
    4. I can't get an NFC Tag to toggle GPS

    I use a Z10 with OS 10.2.1.2977

    Any ideas?

    If you're referring to the last two options as checked ones, then you have probably misread the items' title. It's not possible to read an NFC tag with the locked phone. You can find more info here:

    What about my other issues? Any ideas on them?

    For all actions not covered by phone's app Smart Tags, the best strategy is to have an app that performs the action you want, and then to use NFC to start that app. Another way is to find set of actions which result with the same result, e.g. for bedside mode:

    For other two I don't have an idea .
